Read Full Transcript

I'm Jeff Hopp and the big-game hunter I
was referred to initially as the
big-game hunter for my time in search
when I used to hunt down leaders and
staff for organizations did it for more
than 40 years now I coach people to play
big someone wrote to me asking the
question about how useful a fake degree
is where the people will research it
background check it figure out that this
is a fake degree all that sort of
nonsense here's the data you can get a
fake degree you just have to write a
check now the question is how useful is
it do you think it's going to be as
useful as saying Stanford University of
Chicago Harvard of course not do you
think it's going to be as useful as a
b-school in your territory in your
geographic area probably not because
part of the way that universities work
is they sell a brand a brand that people
associate with you're basically down at
the minimal viable thing for a degree
that is no one recognizes the school it
says BA in a program that let's say it's
a major program and they go to take a
look for it because they're curious
they've never heard of this school
before and then you're out of luck
because they do a Google search and find
out that this is basically a mill so
you're not gonna get away with it with a
substantial firm you might I want to
underscore might probably not but you
have a possibility with a smaller firm
or they just don't have the care or
desire to go check but overall it's not
really useful and if it's gonna be
thousands of dollars
hoo-boy you're only gonna be able to
take advantage of this at small
companies larger farms are gonna smell
