I am looking for jobs that I can apply for and usually find this in the requirement: "Foreign transcripts and degrees require official certification of equivalency to U.S. transcripts and degrees by a certified U.S. review service at the time of application." I am from Manila, Philippines and will migrate to Los Angeles. Do you have recommendations on where I can certify my college degree from Philippines to that it can be accepted for US employment? Thank you.
I am finally due to start a new job on Monday. I have a meeting with HR this Thursday and they asked if I have a HS diploma to which I responded that no, I don’t - I have my grade certificates from my secondary/high school in England. She said to bring those in and she would see if they are sufficient. So, has anyone else had this experience? My highest education level is secondary/high school. I went to college but had to drop out so I didn’t get any qualifications or certificates from college except the music theory and singing exams I did, which I could have done even outside of school or college. Has anyone else taken in their official certificates with grades on? If so, were they accepted? Do I have to get a letter from the school stating that I ‘completed the requirements?’ As far as I know in England, you ‘graduate’ secondary school no matter what grades you get BUT the expectation is that you achieve 5 A*-C in order to be able to get into college more easily and at the highest level AND to be able to get a decent job. So should I contact the school somehow and ask them to send me a letter? Should I just take the certificates and let them contact the school if they need to? Is there something else I should be doing?
freshheir posted a topic in Finding Work in AmericaHi there, So my Green Card was just approved and I'm preparing to start applying for work. I understand pretty much any job will want to know my education and I'm not sure where my education stands to an American standard. See I went to Canada's Sheridan College (considered an "art school" by many) for a very extensive "art" program (it was theatre production - set design, building, props, management etc). My program was called an "Advanced Diploma" because it was a 3 year college program. In the US, I understand that anything called a diploma is referring to high school. And Canada doesn't have Associates Degrees. I also feel that calling what I have an associates degree is selling myself short, because it was a 3 year program, not 2. This also means it also wasn't a bachelor's degree. How do I determine what to call my qualification? Is there a way for me to find out? Thanks
