The internet is on a hunt. They are identifying individuals with shady degrees that had been employed by the government and private companies.

When these people are identified, the internet will bay for their blood, holding their employers ransom until these individuals are mercilessly removed from their jobs.

No compromise. No negotiation. Your integrity and morale cast into doubt. Your very existence questioned. All that experience flushed down the drain

All because you graduated from a non-accredited school

The world just got tougher. Studying and getting a degree is no longer sufficient.

One must study in a publicly approved school or risk being label as a liar who graduated from a bogus school studying bogus subjects (i.e philosophy, communications).

Ask Ms Nisha Padmanabhan who graduated with a Master’s degree from Southern Pacific University. She was a great worker for many years but the internet is asking her employer to sack her because her Master’s Degree was not recognised. The irony is that she did not even use it to apply for the job. (Source)

Cases like this made me think twice and recheck if my pre-school was accredited. The very foundation of my career rested on those early years. Imagine the horror if they insisted that everything I had build were based on lies!

My thoughts on this is simple and can be summarised in two points

Who defines the accreditation process?

Higher education accreditation is a type of quality assurance process under which services and operations of post-secondary educational institutions or programs are evaluated by an external body to determine if applicable standards are met. If standards are met, accredited status is granted by the agency (source)

As accreditation processes often require several years’ work, a new institution may not yet have completed the initial accreditation process. A long-established institution may have lost accreditation due to financial difficulties or other factors. Other institutions (for example, some Bible colleges and seminaries) choose not to participate in the accreditation process because they view it as an infringement of their religious, academic, or political freedom.

It does not mean that they are learning bogus subjects.

A credited degree does not mean sh**

You may have maintained an impressive 3.8 GPA from an accredited school but you are left with no job and your parents are still giving you pocket money to watch the latest Avenger movie.

Not that your accredited degree is useless, but employers hire based on more than just a  degree.

Employers value teamwork, skills, creativity, basically someone who they think have the x-factor and can value add to the team.

They are thousands out there with an accredited degree. Not to be depressing but those in India will do your job for $3.50 an hour.

You are hired because you have the experience and the knowledge to contribute. #Fact. Nothing can take this away from you and no accredited school can teach you life lessons on these.

What if the whole “being accredited” is just a money spinning gimmick by capitalist so that people will pay an arm and a leg to get into those schools, in which the degree ultimately still mean sh** in the corporate world.

Think about it,

We think therefore We are. Didn’t your accredited school teach you that?
