I faked a diploma to get a new job. The interview went pretty well, so they offering me a job now. The only problem, they want to see the original diploma with its original stamp.
Is there any way to make the stamp by myself or could I just got to a stamp-store and ask to make/(fake) the stamp?
Hey all, I'm wondering how competitive or exclusive the admission process for bootcamps really is (specifically in the Data Science field).
Right now I'm going through it at 2 different institutions which seem like the most reputable ones accessible to me in my local area. I've completed a pre admission challenge at one and working on the other right now.
They both seem pretty eager to have me join, but I'm getting a pretty strong "used car salesman" meets "apple genius" vibe from both of them if that makes any sense.
These are my observations:
-So far I've received one admission offer with a 20% discount (or "scholarship" in thier words) from the listed tuition cost, but it wouldn't surprise me if they offered that to everybody.
-They told me it was because the work on my technical challenge was impressive, but I couldn't get them give me any kind of critical feedback (I know my coding work had deficiencies that I just didn't have time to fix, and some of my approach seemed a bit dodgy to me at least).
-They wouldn't tell me the rate at which they reject applicants.
-I'm feeling a moderate amount of pressure to sign on ASAP, and being told how competitive things are. But they're not giving me any real deadline beyond the actual start date for the late February cohort I'm interested in. They're offering for me to join an earlier cohort even. It doesn't sound like they're filling up..
-As I was writing this I received an email from my point of contact and they forgot to remove a note indicating that they were using an email tracking app to see how many times I looked at their message in my inbox. This is a bit invasive, and seems like a sales tool plain and simple. (I read it 3 times, triggering them to follow up with me)
I have no illusions in my mind that I'm enrolling at MIT or Harvard. I have a pretty respectable educational and professional background that I think would make me a desirable candidate for these courses - I want to learn some new skills that I can apply to areas I'm already experienced in, which come with some kind of credentials.
I don't want to throw away a large chunk of my savings on a diploma mill though. I have already learned a lot of cool stuff on my own since I started looking into these courses. Are these institutions just taking in anybody with deep enough pockets?
Any general thoughts or advice would be welcome!
Some background: I’m a senior in HS looking for online work, and due to living with a medical worker who works 9-12 hours a day, I’m not able to be taken in and out of work (not in a convenient manner). I draw but not well enough to promote on any gig sites/subs, so that’s something I’m still working on to use a bit later. I have access to a laptop and earbuds as well. Honestly open to anything that’ll get me something steady as soon as possible, even if it’s a couple of beermoney sites/apps!
I’ve been asking myself this for a while. I know it doesn’t really have any big significance but to me it would indicate a little about how the school dealt with them after what they did.
Also were they mentioned in any of the lists of graduates?
I need help.

As the Austrian school system may be unfamiliar to most a short explanation.
After primary school children (age 10) will enter either Hauptschule or Gymnasium ( a school not for performing sports) depending among other things on grades earned during the last year of primary school. This system is sometimes compared with the schools in Great Britain of the 1940-1960 with the Gymnasium taking the place of the grammar school.
The separation of the paths is not complete but attendance at a Gymnasium or equivalent is the standard needed for going to university.
I have a slight hearing impairment and therefore had some troubles in school ( mind this was in the 80ies, so there were no concessions made). I was a good student having above average grades.
Ms Baker ( not her name) my teacher I this last year of primary school hated to have me in her class, first I could not sing (she lead the school choir) and second I was a handicapped kid that they had failed to get rid off to special education school. The first thing she did was assigning me seating at the back of the room, all other kids were rotated regularly in seating, I stayed there. This lead to some problems due to misheard instructions or words during dictation. At the end of the year in German my grades were between "Good=2" and "Middling=3", normally In this situation the student will be administered a short examination to decide the grade. Ms Baker decided that I had not earned that chance to improve my grade with the explanation " A disabled child has no place in Gymnasium" ... so I had to go to Hauptschule.
There I had a lot of good teachers and got the rare chance to switch to Gymnasium after 2 years (not a normal path) graduated and went to university
Years later after earning my master's I decided to send a copy of my diploma/degree to Ms Baker with a nice letter that the tone-deaf disabled pupil has now a master's degree. I am only sorry that she died before I got my PhD....
Edit: Inserted information further clarifying how the school system works. Edit: Thanks for Silver !
I was going to UMUC....sus. Not trying to gloat but it’s almost a little TOO easy to pass their classes. Need something more quality that a future employer wouldn’t look down on.
I'm planning on studying abroad but I really want to focus on System administration most of the Masters courses I've come across is Computer Science which doesn't really come close to system administration. Is there any diploma course I can do?
I've got two years of job experience in my home country I'm not sure If that does matter abroad I'm not sure. I currently have a Bsc.IT degree. Any tips would help, I've been searching and researching for 3 months now but they were all in UK and Ireland,the post brexit scenario seems to affect UK and EU relations so I dropped UK for now.
Would a diploma be better?
Edit: My current job is not even close to a junior system admin although I do manage 3 vms at work so I'd be looking out for an entry level job per se.
Hallo. Ik ben 20jaar oud en volg ergotherapie(bachelor) Ik vind ergotherapie fijn maar ik kan mezelf niet inzetten om te studeren. Hiervoor heb ik nog een jaar weggegooid door IT te doen.
Is er een sociale job voor mensen met een tso diploma? Mijn diploma is elektrotechnieken maar ik ben allergisch voor stof en wil liefst mensen helpen ipv in de bouw te werken. Indien dat niet mogelijk is, zijn er misschien andere jobs wat jullie interessant lijke dat mogelijk zou zijn voor mij?
Danku voor alles en alle info is heel erg geaprecieerd
I just paid off the the remaining balance of my student loan, and I haven't even received my diploma yet! I went to community college for two years for free while living with my parents, and I saved up about 13k to help pay for my final two years at university. I ran out of cash and used a 5k unsubsidized federal loan to pay for the rest.
I got a good job before I graduated, and I started paying it off. I paid off the entire amount in about 2 months. Feels super good to not have any debt.
I moved back into my father's house temporarily and that is where I am currently living. I am paying him rent, but my expenses are significantly less than it was when I lived in my apartment. My plan now is to save up as much as I can while I'm here. I'd like to save up about 15-20k for my emergency fund and go from there.
Anyway, just wanted to share my experience!
Right now pretty much any office job requires a college degree. You want to be an administrative assistant? You need your 4 years of 20k-a-year tuition to show you are knowledgable enough to answer emails coherently and schedule meetings in Outlook.
Kids spend 12 years in school. That’s a very long time and what people of all income levels can get without shelling out huge sums of money.
If someone has a high school diploma, that diploma should prove they can solve for X when X+3=13. That 15% of 100 is 15. That diploma should prove they can tell the difference between they’re/their/there. But we’ve watered down the value of high school diplomas so much that we are forcing young people to take on huge debts to go to college, just to do jobs that don’t even require a college education.
I happened to see some comments on here about how the APC Diploma is complete rubbish and a rip off, I tell you I just about cried because I am considering doing it and thought I had finally figured out my plan to become a paramedic. I was homeschooled so I don't have an ATAR and have never studied a day in my life so I thought this would be a good way to get into Uni.
Is it really that bad?
Edit: Thank you so much to everyone who commented, you were really helpful and I appreciate it.

Anyone else not receiving a lot of diploma and graduation-related correspondence from the school
My degree was conferred in July, but I have not received any follow-on information.
When will diplomas be sent because the website says 2-4 weeks after the degree is evaluated and conferred?
When will unofficial transcripts reflect the awarding of the Bachelor's or Master's for December 2020?
Question in the title. I'm an American who grew up and was educated in England. Like a lot of my schoolmates, GCSEs and A-Levels ceased to have pretty much any meaning once you either went to uni or joined the work force (I went to uni). Most jobs I worked over there, employers care more about your work history than qualifications below university level; it's not like I was applying to be a doctor or an engineer or something, where actual certification would matter.
Over here, a lot of jobs demand a minimum High School Diploma or GED (still not even sure what those are). When I first got back here and I was asked that by prospective employers I was baffled. I tried to explain the route of academic progression in the UK isn't exactly the same and - without saying no one really cares about GCSEs - if I got into uni I must obviously have whatever it is they required.
Well I'm back on the job hunt again and it's a pain filling in the "education" section of online job applications where they don't really have the capacity to accept the international version of anything below degree level. I figure I'll just flub it and say sure, I got a GED or whatever in Cumbria, England.
If I have to explain it to an employer in better detail in an interview, and I guess for edification's sake, does anyone know what a US High School Diploma or GED translates to in the British education system?
The argument given right now is that forcing high school kids to do community service promotes "leadership" and "awareness" or something.
I was required to do community service for high school graduation. Myself, and a number of other students, all found "easy ways out." Some of the students opted for "real" volunteer work, but at least 25% managed to get the 50 hour requirement by doing nothing at all. When things are verified only by signature on paper, you can get away with pretty much anything, if you know what to do. High school kids are smart enough to know this.
This is my first line of reasoning for why I think Mandatory community service is exploitation; a lot of students manage to cheat the system, and the lesson is never learned.
But here is my MAIN reason: Recently, I've been wanting to 'give back' and donate money to charities. Tax exempt charities are required to publicly post their financial information to keep their charity status, so I like to check these things. Some of the big charities that get billions of dollars absolutely disgusted me. They pay their board members and CEO's JUST under $1,000,000 (i guess a 7 figure salary looks too suspicious for someone who does nothing). They have even more in "other compensations," they pay ridiculous contract fees, and all of the labor is free.
But here is the interesting part....those charity officers who make bank ALL live in super expensive areas of the US....and the majority of their charity work is done in those areas.
And then I get to thinking about how lobbying works....and how easy it can be to convince some politicians that something is "good for the society" to get a bill passed...
The amount of free labor they get is also on the tax forms. They get SO much free labor....."Who the hell would volunteer this much??"
That's when the lightbulb hit. The only way these charities can manage the free labor is by forcing children to do the work, under a guise of "it promotes being good." The tax forms have so much money that is basically unverified spending, that it becomes clear that they are spending to lobby districts to force children to provide them free labor, so that they can continue to pocket millions of dollars in donations.
Start forcing these charities to pay the school board for the labor. Imagine if charities were forced to give millions of dollars to your school district in exchange for the cost of the child labor we provide....honestly, would you rather see donation... keep reading on reddit ➡
High school diplomas worked when there was a work force that allowed for be the bare minimum for job entry. That is something to be celebrated when you can join the workforce and earn an actual living. But now High School has been so brought down to the lowest common denominator and devalued for the workforce, it's basically a participation award for have been babysat in education systems that fail them. There is nothing to celebrate, it only reinforces mediocrity and life has so much more to offer past high school, why present a ceremony like it is somehow the pinnacle of it.
I have met plenty of people who have a high school diploma and are dumb as shit. It is nothing but a piece of paper. You can graduate without even learning algebra. Meanwhile there are kids that take algebra in grade 5 or sooner. So what is the point of requiring a high school diploma for a delivery job? Or an office secretary? I have a job programming CNC machines and inspecting robot parts without a high school diploma. Its just crazy to disqualify someone from an easy job simply because they did not graduate.
E aí povo, não sou muito de postar mas vim dar uma atualização, eu tava na faculdade de design gráfico fazendo o TCC sozinho e tava enlouquecendo na época. Após eu ser aprovado com muito sacrifício, eu tinha pegado uma DP em psicologia da comunicação, mas em dezembro eu concluí a matéria e essa semana meu certificado de conclusão foi liberado. Agora é lutar atrás de um emprego mesmo nesses tempos difíceis.
