Do employers check if you graduated from high school?

Postby deanne » Wed Jun 01, 2011 5:53 pm

My senior yr I just stopped going (I was kicked out of my home and had to support myself) and now I'm applying for a bank job. I didn't want to write that I didn't graduate on my resume bc I was planning in doing my last 4 credits online to get my diploma so hopefully I would have my diploma a few months into my job. But if I put that I did graduate will they check that? Or what should I write?

They will check or ask to see your diploma. You should write that you plan on completing high school and should have your diploma in a few months.

Yeah, they will ask to see your HS diploma.
Don't lie but tell them the truth.....that you're planning to complete your last 4 credits online....
At least you gave them some confidence in you.....

Wow! Where I live college grads are applying for bank teller jobs. I am surprised that they would even consider hiring you with just a high school diploma. However, I doubt that most banks would check on that. Good luck!

If possible, start the process of completing your last four credits then apply so that you can provide proof of your intention. If you can't then still tell the truth. If I were your prospective employer and I found out you lied on your application, I would question your honesty more than your education.

Not all employers confirm information on an application but you don't know if this one will or won't.
