Online Learning Systems and Employer Acceptance
An increasing number of employers are recognizing legitimate online degrees at hiring time. However, it’s important to be aware when considering online learning systems that not all employers will accept them.
Some potential employers may shy away from hiring people whose degree is pronounced “online” on his or her resume. Much of this is because many still aren’t aware of the kinds of advances in LMS-hosted courses and other online learning systems, or how to differentiate between legitimate degrees and “diploma mill” certificates.
A good piece of advice: Even if you attended a highly-regarded and renowned school, avoid calling attention to the fact that your degree was earned online. Your employer may not care either way, but it might help you avoid any fuss.
