    I'm happy you took the plunge and clicked on one. I didn't have the balls to because I didn't want to give my phone herpes.

    Took the plunge at work. Here's a Google translate:

    Why would someone want to buy a degree from Guelph of all places? :confused:

    I haven't worked for 1 employer who has ever asked to see my actual diploma. They have asked for my college transcripts, though. THAT's what they should be selling.

    I truthfully wonder if hiring managers actually even call whatever institution you claim to have been educated at.

    I wouldn't have been able to BS my way through my first post-grad gig without the knowledge that came from the degree, but, lots of folks working lots of jobs totally could.......Wonder if it is more cost effective to backpack through Europe for the 3-4 years, and just claim an education at some out of country school that looks credible.

    FWIW, no employer has ever asked for my transcripts or my degree either.....just the provincial regulator, and other educational institutions.
  9. If im not mistaken UofG is one of the most respected Veterinary schools in all of Canada as well as its Agri-studies

    For those keeping score, I was asked to provide a diploma at one employer. When I worked in HR I think we did ask for a diploma but I’m unsure if anyone asked for a transcript there.

    Our HR looks into diplomas. We have people with overseas diplomas, and they say they check. By the time they get to me, they have been vetted.

    There was a time we were hiring a consultant, and I believed he was being coached during a phone interview. It sounded wrong. I contacted HR, and they did the busting. We wouldnt have been brought on without a face to face.

    Last night they attacked the Roughnecks forum specifically. I guess they wanna sell diplomas to people who hate Malawsky.

    So, are the alleged admins of this site going to actually do anything about it or are we in limbo as we continue to be the black sheep of the IL family?
