Smoke, Mirrors and Resumes: EmployeeScreenIQ Tackles Growing Threat of Diploma Mills

Nick Fishman

They’re lurking in your mailbox – as many as 17 a day, or 70 a week. They are diploma mills, insidious companies that offer academic degrees and diplomas with little or no academic study and without recognition by legitimate educational bodies.

They feed on job applicants who will do anything to enhance their resume. Cheap, easy, and fast is their mantra, and their popularity is exploding in today’s marketplace. Employers that don’t act quickly face financial loss, litigation, and loss of reputation.

Read EmployeeScreenIQ’s new article, The Growing Threat of Diploma Mills, to learn about:
• The cost of diploma mill fraud
• Where the diploma mills are located
• How to determine a phony diploma
• Stacking the odds in your favor

The Growing Threat of Diploma Mills is required reading for employers who need to know whether a candidate is the answer to their prayers… or a product of smoke and mirrors.
