Organizations are spending millions of dollars to find the best recruits without any assurances on the candidate’s experience. In most HR departments, HR managers are often overloaded with hundreds if not thousands of resumes, with no assurances that the college diploma, professional training and other courses listed on the resume are authentic for each candidate.
Universities, colleges, schools and other professional training institutions often take pride in finding the best promising positions for their alumni and in ensuring that they have a great start to their careers. However, sometimes the name of the educational institution can be used in the wrong context.
A student pretends to have graduated an academic institution when they don’t, or they only attended one specific course. Up to 30 per cent of diplomas and certificates in circulation are counterfeits. This has jeopardized the whole idea of value creation in the education system.
While genuinely skilled employees may be available, they are often muddled by the people with fraudulent certifications. Fake certifications, recommendations, work experiences, and skill endorsements have often led to companies recruiting wrong candidates. Simply put, managing counterfeit certificates in today’s ever-increasing professional-grade copying and document production technologies is an enormous problem.
