I recently accepted a job offer for a great job. My online application shows my employment and education history. For my current masters I had written down the anticipated graduation date as December 2019 and then indicated “no” when it asked if I had graduated. I will be done in spring 2020. The degree is not required for the job, though they were happy to see I was pursuing it.
As part of the standard due diligence the company is conducting a background check that will also verify my employment and education history. The background screening company sent me a form asking for me to fill out some personal information and reconfirm my employment and education history which was pre-populated from the online application. I cannot remember and can’t revisit the background screening form to confirm if It had the anticipated graduation date marked down correctly. I am now concerned that it may show as me graduating in 2019 and they would use this as grounds to rescind the offer. It is fairly easy to confirm with the university that I am enrolled and slated to be complete by spring 2020.
