Security researchers have discovered underground cybercrime sites selling cheating services, leaked courses and fake certificates to help unscrupulous individuals gain security qualifications and/or a leg up in their careers. 

Dov Lerner, head of threat research at Cybersixgill, said in a new report out today that his team found fake CompTIA CySA+ diplomas, among other security-related certifications on the dark web. Given each legitimate cert possesses a unique serial number, these counterfeits should be easy to spot, he added.

However, other cheats may be more difficult to discern. Lerner said some dark web sellers offer buyers a way to cheat on exams from CompTIA, Cisco, Microsoft, Google, AWS and others, which allow candidates to take tests at home via webcam.

“In a post offering a cheating service, an actor explains that during exams, test-takers’ audio and video streams are directed to them so they can listen to and watch exams in real-time, bypassing the [invigilator],” he explained.

Cybersixgill also recorded a 73% increase in the number of leaked courses advertised on underground markets compared to 2021. Some of these are even available via free downloads, although the average price ranges from $5-200 depending on the quality and quantity of course content, course level and date.

While the market for these services is relatively small compared to other cybercrime offerings, the threat intelligence firm urged test and course providers for security certifications to monitor for attempts to game the system.

“Fake cybersecurity certificates pose a significant risk to employers who accidentally hire unqualified candidates misrepresenting their training,” Lerner concluded.

“Ultimately, the organizations that employ such individuals may discover their sensitive data in the wrong hands. Therefore, employers must take a few minutes to verify a prospective employee’s certifications to prevent such circumstances.”

Killexams : ‘New collar jobs’: Why you might not need to go to university if you want to work in tech

By Sandra O’Connell

The tech sector has long revelled in the success of its world-famous college dropouts. Apple’s Steve Jobs, Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Spotify’s Daniel Ek all star in its non-alumni hall of fame.

For the rest of us however, a degree has always been the most reliable route into a career in tech. To be clear, it still is.

Undertaking a computer science degree, if you can afford the time, energy and money is an investment in yourself that will definitely not hinder your career in tech. That’s particularly true now, a time of high-profile industry “rightsizing”.

However, in recent years a growing number of big-name tech employers have indicated that not having a degree is an unnecessary barrier to getting hired. In short, it is prohibiting too many good candidates with skills, experience and potential from getting in the door.

New collar jobs

In the US, companies such as Google and IBM have reduced the educational qualifications for some roles. Instead, they focus more on the skills and experience required to actually do the job.

Given that almost 40 per cent of 25- to 34-year-olds in the EU have not completed third-level education, it’s a trend that is likely to open up new opportunities here too.

IBM has pioneered this shift away from degree requirements, with less than one third of its job ads for IT roles requiring a degree.

It coined the term “new collar jobs” to refer to the surging number of careers that don’t necessarily require a traditional Bachelor’s degree but instead need a specific set of in-demand skills.

It has gone further, developing alternative routes in, such as apprenticeship programmes that provide on-the-job training in areas from blockchain to cybersecurity.

Low-cost programmes

Other tech firms are developing new pathways too. Google launched Google Career Certificates, available online on Coursera, enabling people to become job ready for growing careers, such as data analytics, UX design and project management.

These low-cost programmes help people who want to learn online at their own pace, or who want to change careers and don’t have the time or means to access traditional education.

They can be completed in under six months, do not require relevant experience or a degree, and are recognised by industry experts and employers. For example, a Google Project Management Professional Certificate takes six months to complete, at 10 hours a week, and is designed to prepare you for an entry-level job in a fast-growing, high-paying sector.

There is a wide range of MOOCs (massive open online courses) available now too, often for free, from some of the world’s top universities, as well as dedicated education platforms such as Udemy.

Completing such courses shows you as a motivated, disciplined, self-starter with a growth mindset.

Woz U, founded by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, another college dropout, provides tech education for independent students, with courses in software development, data science and cyber security - an area for which demand has continued to grow, despite the recent round of tech layoffs.

Consulting firm Accenture’s apprenticeship programme offers degrees up to postgraduate master’s level. Its intention is to fill 20 per cent of its entry-level roles in the US this way, in everything from app development to platform engineering.

Its master’s degree apprenticeship programmes are aimed at individuals without a technical background who want to kick-start a career in technology.

In fact, since establishing the apprenticeship programme in 2016, Accenture has hired more than 1,200 apprentices. The vast majority - 960 people, or 80 per cent - joined the company without a four-year college degree.

Want to get into tech but not sure if you qualify? Here are three openings worth checking out, with plenty more available on Euronews.jobs.

Apprentice Data Visualisation Developer, Multiverse, Leeds

Multiverse, a UK tech scaleup with a social mission, is building an alternative to university and corporate training, through the power of professional apprenticeships. It currently has an opening for an Apprentice Data Visualisation Developer at Jet2 in Leeds for someone with great attention to detail who enjoys dealing with people and building relationships.

Customer Care Manager, HERO Software, Remote

HERO Software in Germany has a remote position for a Customer Care Manager for German speakers. It is looking for candidates with experience in customer service in other sectors looking for an opportunity in a fast-growing tech start-up. It specifies communication skills, a “hands on” mentality and an affinity with technology.

If this sounds like something that would interest you, explore your suitability here.

Senior Software Engineer, Coupa Software, Germany

Coupa Software, a US-based leader in cloud-based business spend management, is looking for a Senior Software Engineer in Ettenheim, Germany. It’s looking for a candidate who can show strong previous experience but, it says, while typically its team members have a higher education degree in STEM, this is not a hard requirement.

Killexams : Did you know you might not need a degree to get a top tech job?

The college route isn't for everyone: it's eye-wateringly expensive, for one thing. In America, the average cost of attendance for a student living on campus at a public four-year university is $25,707 per year or $102,828 over four years, according to Education Data Initiative.

The numbers are even bleaker for out-of-state students, who pay $43,421 annually, or $173,684 over four years of education. Private, non-profit students pay a huge $218,004 over four years.

More figures estimate that those who are unable to work full-time while studying stand to lose a median annual income of $42,068, and once students' graduate, they are paying an average of $2,186 in interest each year – with the average student borrower spending about 20 years paying off their loans.

Move away

Within tech, there is an increasing move away from requiring prospective candidates to have a college degree. Research from Harvard Business School and The Burning Glass Institute found that in November 2022, 41% of U.S.-based job postings required at least a Bachelor's degree – a 5% drop from early 2019.

This can be explained by McKinsey research, which found that about half of all work activities could be automated by 2055, or as soon as 2035. Because technology advances so quickly, this is creating an ongoing shortage of skilled workers.

General Motors, Google, Apple, Microsoft, EY and Accenture are some companies that have removed an educational requirement. General Motors has taken degree requirements out of many jobs listings, and Delta eased up on its education requirements for pilots at the start of 2022, saying a four-year college degree was preferred – but was no longer required.

If you want to work at IBM, it has removed the requirement for a four-year degree from the majority of its U.S.-based jobs. Bank of America no longer requires college degrees for the majority of its entry-level jobs, and Walmart, the country's largest employer, said it values skills and knowledge gained through work experience. Now, 75% of its U.S. salaried store management started their careers in hourly jobs.

Some experts predict that based on these trends, an additional 1.4 million jobs could open to workers without college degrees over the next five years.

Open to experience

It is not so surprising that the tech sector in particular is open to experience over education. After all, the industry boasts many founders from non-technical backgrounds, including Airbnb's founder Brian Chesky, who started his career as a designer. Pinterest's co-founder Ben Silbermann graduated with a Bachelor of Arts/Science from Yale University, before founding the tech giant.

Plenty of founders didn't finish college either. Tinder's founder Sean Rad dropped out from the University of Southern California, Dell founder Michael Dell dropped out of the University of Texas, and perhaps most famously, Meta's Mark Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard in 2004 to devote himself to Facebook.

Other routes

A degree is just one route to a job in the tech sector. Upskilling via online courses is popular, particularly for those who would like to get into software engineering. There are a wide range of MOOCs (massive open online courses) available from top universities, as well as dedicated education platforms such as Udemy and Wozniak's Woz U.

An increasing number of companies are also offering apprenticeships, including Accenture. Its apprenticeship program offers degrees up to Master's level, and the company intends to fill 20% of its entry level roles in the U.S. this way, in everything from app development to platform engineering.

Killexams : How to Survive if You Were Part of the Tech Layoffs

Google, Amazon, Facebook, Salesforce, countless crypto startups, Microsoft: These are the tech companies, great and small, that have been laying people off in droves so far in 2023. And it’s not only marketing and middle management roles being terminated, but analyst and engineer roles too. No job is 100 percent safe, as many of us have come to understand through experience.

Being laid off is stressful, and can leave you feeling destabilized and unsure. Whether this is your first layoff (which probably hits much harder) or you've been down this road before, searching for jobs and figuring out how to meet your needs without that steady income can be scary. There are many creative solutions to help while you look for your next big break.

Prepare for the Worst, Hope for the Best

Whether you are entering a job search out of necessity or you’re riddled with survivor’s guilt and panic that you might be up next on the chopping block, update your resume and start looking for other opportunities. Job board sites like LinkedInZipRecruiter, and Indeed are great places to begin your search, but also think about companies you’d like to work for and scroll through their career pages as well. 

If you’re hitting a roadblock, look for recruiters who specialize in tech and reach out to them directly. If the economists are right and we are indeed looking down the barrel of a recession, there’s a good chance these layoffs will not be the last.

Whether you got the long or the short end of the layoff fallout, secure your information. I definitely made the mistake of creating files on my work Google drive that should have been in my personal drive, but luckily I had shared them with myself. Make copies to ensure that you don’t get locked out, and if there are any important contacts or emails you want to save, make copies of those as well, as trying to track them down after being laid off can be difficult, if not impossible.

Check Your Benefits

It may sound obvious to some, but when I was laid off earlier this year, unemployment insurance was the last thing that came to mind. Each state in the US has its own set of qualifications to determine whether an individual can claim benefits, for how much, and how long. For example, in New York, you have to have worked for 2 quarters to be eligible to claim unemployment; the maximum you will be granted is $504 per week, and the term will last for up to 26 weeks. In Florida, you will likely receive less, and the state has a set maximum of 12 weeks to claim unemployment insurance.

This is almost definitely a lot less than many of us in tech are used to making, but something is better than nothing. Plus, many programs allow you to pursue freelance work between jobs, and that income won’t impact your weekly benefit, meaning you can look at unemployment as a sort of baseline on which to build.

In the US, you can use this Unemployment Benefits Finder to look up your state’s policy and apply online or over the phone. You can apply for benefits the day you are let go, but keep in mind that if you received a severance package, you may not be eligible until your severance runs out. 

Check Your Insurance

In the United States, health insurance is often tied to your employment, which adds yet another layer of distress to being laid off, especially if you cover dependents under your plan. Legally, your employer has to cover your premiums through the end of the month in which your employment ends, but that time moves quickly, especially if you are let go close to the end of the month. 

If your benefits included health insurance, look into COBRA (the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985) to see how long your group rate will be available to you. You should receive a packet in the mail about a week after you are let go, which will include the full cost of your premiums (it will usually be around double what you were paying previously) and the length of time you can be covered under that plan. Some employers will cover your premiums for an extended period after your employment has ended, but make sure you fill out the appropriate paperwork to ensure your coverage doesn’t end before you find a new job or a new plan.

You can also look into the state-sponsored insurance plans available to you using this Plan Finder. The plans vary from state to state and depend heavily on your income status. For example, when I was an adjunct professor making less than $30,000 a year, I qualified for a $40/month plan with a $0 deductible and a very good network of doctors. However, now that I need a family plan, which takes both my and my domestic partner’s income into account, our plan offering actually amounted to more than my COBRA insurance, with worse rates and a weaker network of doctors. Definitely check to see what plans you qualify for, but don’t be surprised if continuing your current group rate is cheaper and better.

Killexams : Comilla set up qualifier vs Sylhet

Comilla Victorians defeated Rangpur Riders by a big margin of 70 runs to ensure a playoff qualification spot courtesy of finishing in second place after the Bangladesh Premier League’s (BPL) league phase. Both Comilla and Rangpur were vying for a playoff qualification spot after Sylhet Sixers had already qualified by finishing top of the table.

Comilla Victorians defeated Rangpur Riders by a big margin of 70 runs to ensure a playoff qualification spot courtesy of finishing in second place after the Bangladesh Premier League's (BPL) league phase. Both Comilla and Rangpur were vying for a playoff qualification spot after Sylhet Sixers had already qualified by finishing top of the table.

Fortune Barishal will now play against Rangpur Riders in the Eliminator on Sunday, in what will be a knockout game. Sylhet will take on Comilla in the first qualifier game in the evening match on the same day, with the losing side playing the winner of the Eliminator on February 14.

Liton Das breezed to 47 off 33 deliveries before Jaker Ali's 23-ball 34 and Khushdil Shah's 20-ball 40 saw Comilla post 177 for five yesterday.

Spinner Tanvir Islam, who has impressed this BPL, then dented Rangpur's chase, picking up two early wickets before Mustafizur Rahman scalped three wickets in three overs as Rangpur slumped to 107 all out.

The likes of Mohammad Rizwan and Khushdil Shah will depart from the BPL, having played their last game. Rangpur too will have to think of replacements for the likes of Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who has been signed by a Pakistan Super League franchise.

With chops and changes coming in frequently in all the teams, Rangpur coach Sohel Islam was asked whether the challenge had become more difficult than usual.

He admitted to the difficulties faced in planning for matches when it was unclear which players would feature.

"In this BPL, the most challenging aspect for the coaches is due to the shuffling of foreign players and their availability. Often we can't find players for a particular position. If two foreign players are changed, it turns out that the whole team combination is changing so this is pretty challenging," Sohel said.

"It's also difficult to analyse teams due to the chopping and changing. We have to make plans when we get to the field since we often can't stick to plans due to changes. But we have to sort out such things and quickly," he added.

Killexams : Your Android phone keyboard is getting a handy upgrade null © Shutterstock / dennizn null

Google’s Gboard is the default keyboard on many of the best Android phones, and the baked-in app is getting a much-needed refresh in the coming weeks. 

Specifically, the Gboard toolbar – that’s the list of icons above the number keys – is being updated (H/T Android Police), with beta testers reporting that you’ll soon be able to customize this row of icons with more than four options. 

In its current guise, the Gboard toolbar plonks an immovable ellipses menu icon between the settings and voice search buttons. In its updated form, this ellipses becomes a button showing four squares with rounded corners, and is moved to the left-hand side of the toolbar.

That redesigned menu houses all the shortcuts that aren't currently in the toolbar, so you can drag and drop them to replace toolbar shortcuts. That's long been the case, but now, rather than being limited to four toolbar shortcuts, you’ll be able to add as many shortcuts as you like – including new emoji and language switcher options – and the voice search button will no longer be locked in place. See the redesigned toolbar in action by comparing the pictures below. 

In addition to these cosmetic enhancements, Google is also working on adding a Privacy menu to Gboard’s settings. Essentially, it’ll feature most of the settings that were once housed in the Advanced menu, but it’s nice to see Google introducing a dedicated space for keyboard-related data collection. 

These Gboard updates are now available to anyone on Google’s Beta program – the new version is – but those not already enrolled can get involved by tapping the Join button on Gboard’s Play Store page.

Alternatively, we’d expect to see Google rolling out the updates as part of its next Android software update (which could come anytime in the next few weeks). 

For more info on getting the best out of your Android phone, read our guides on how to make custom emojis on Android, how to screenshot on Android and how to record your screen on Android for free (all three guides apply to the best Android tablets, too).

Killexams : New Google Lens feature will let Android users (literally) search their screen
Audio player loading…

Google announced a suite of AI-powered upgrades to its Search, Maps and Lens services during its recent Paris showcase, with Lens set to benefit from a particularly useful new feature in the coming months.

Soon, Google Lens users on Android will be able to search for what they see in photos and videos through Google Assistant alone. The integration will work across myriad websites and apps, and allow people to learn more about information contained within images – think building names, food recipes or car models – without having to navigate away from those images. As Google explained in its Paris presentation, "if you can see it, you can search it".

Killexams : Skills engine: An update on Google’s role as training provider

What’s the strategy behind the tech giant’s expanding portfolio of certificate programs and partnerships? Lisa Gevelber, founder of Grow with Google, on boosting prospects for workers with and without college degrees, coordinating with employers to address the skills gap, and enhancing post-secondary institutions’ career-launching capabilities.

Joe Fuller: Businesses are struggling to fill open positions, especially for workers with digital skills. There is nothing to suggest that the supply-demand imbalance will be remedied soon. Everything—from the acceleration of technological innovation to the shift to hybrid work—suggests that the demand for workers proficient in technology will remain buoyant. How can that demand be met? Skills providers, like post-secondary educational institutions, have found it hard to keep pace with technology. Upskilling can be a daunting prospect for incumbent workers, given cost and time commitments and uncertainty about the quality and market demand for any given credential.

Welcome to the Managing the Future of Work podcast from Harvard Business School. I’m your host, Harvard Business School Professor and visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, Joe Fuller. Today I’m pleased to welcome back to the podcast Lisa Gevelber, founder of Grow with Google, the company’s online Career Certificate program. Since the program’s launch in 2017, a quarter of a million people have earned certificates in areas such as IT support, data analytics, and project management. Google also connects graduates with almost 200 employers who recognize their certificates as valid qualifications for career-sustaining entry-level positions. We’ll talk about the skills gap, skills-based hiring, and efforts to redefine the role of post-secondary education in job training. We’ll also discuss how Google certificate holders fare in the job market, and we’ll talk about how Google’s work with leading four-year colleges makes industry-specific training available to general learners on an open-enrollment basis. Could this hybrid approach presage a trend? Welcome to the podcast, Lisa.

Lisa Gevelber: Well, thank you so much for having me back, Joe.

Fuller: We’re excited to have you back. You’re actually our first repeat guest; we’re excited about that. You’ve achieved that exalted status because it’s been a couple of years since you launched the Grow with Google program, and specifically the Google Career Certificates. We’d just really like to get an update how that’s all unfolded. Could you maybe supply listeners who didn’t have the chance to listen in on our first episodes a little background on the program?

Gevelber: So the Google Career Certificate program is a really important part of our overall Grow with Google program, which we actually started in 2017. We created the Google Career Certificates to solve a really important societal problem, which is that right now great jobs are out of reach for most people. About 77 percent of all jobs in the United States that pay more than $35,000 a year say they require a college degree, but only about a third of Americans actually have a college degree. What that means is that about 80 million adult workers in our country are essentially locked out of good jobs. And in addition, that’s a huge issue for employers, as well. PwC’s Global CEO Survey shows that four out of five CEOs say that not being able to find people who have the skills they need is a giant inhibitor, maybe one of the largest inhibitors to companies’ abilities to grow. So we have this great mismatch between the skills people have and the skills employers are hiring for, and we have this artificial barrier.

Fuller: So you’ve had the certificates going now for several years. How have you performed with it? What are the numbers like? And what type of sense does that supply you for the success of your initiative to try to create some career credentials other than university degrees that can help more people get on track for good jobs?

Gevelber: In the last year and a half alone, we have graduated a quarter million people with the Google Career Certificates. We now teach data analytics, user experience design, project management, IT support, and e-commerce and digital marketing. And in those five fields alone in the U.S., there’s about a million and a half open jobs. There is huge demand for graduates of the program.

Fuller: How does this training relate to internal upskilling or re-skilling programs at Google, your job requirements? And how do you make sure the curriculum is current? Because several of those are pretty dynamic fields, where we know that traditional skills providers—for example, community colleges—have a very tough time keeping up with practice.

Gevelber: Actually the very first Google Career Certificate, the IT support certificate, was actually built based on an internal program we had here at Google to better diversify our workforce and bring in some nontraditional talent. We had done a pilot, actually, with Year Up, and we had brought in a few dozen folks without college degrees and trained them to be IT support professionals here at Google. It had worked so well that we decided we wanted to open source it, essentially, and make that training program available for anyone who wanted to learn these skills and for any employer who was hoping to hire IT support professionals. And so that certificate was launched in 2018. We’ve updated a lot. So we want to make sure that the things we’re teaching are always consistent with what employers are hiring for. And so, from the very beginning, we actually created an employer consortium of companies who hire our graduates. But they do so much more than that, actually. They input into the curriculum from the beginning. All of the Google Career Certificates are built by Google experts who have decades or years of experience in the field. But once we write the curriculum, we immediately take it out to top employers who hire for those fields, and they help us make it better. As a matter of fact, one good example is on our data analytics certificate. We brought it to Deloitte, who hires a lot of data analysts. They allowed us to build their assessments right into the Google Career Certificate for data analytics so that they knew, if someone graduated with a data analytics certificate, that that person had demonstrated mastery to the extent that Deloitte was looking for. We have been doing that on every one of our certificates. So I think the really important part about the certificate program is, not only is it taught by the experts at Google, all the curriculum is vetted by employers, and employers join our hiring consortium and hire our graduates. We have our own job board for which any Career Certificate graduate is a potential candidate, because they’re qualified by definition, because every job in that job board, the Google Career Certificate is the right credential for.

Fuller: How many companies are you partnered with in terms of being prospective employers? And is it pretty much limited to other tech companies and tech-services companies, or is it broader than that?

Gevelber: We have almost 200 big, national employers who hire our graduates and they hire them everywhere. One of the most important things to us, when we chose the career fields we would teach for the certificates, was they had to be jobs that people could be hired for all over the country, so that people didn’t have to move to the coasts in order to get a job in these fields. And you see that, in fact. People are hiring data analysts, for example, all over the country and in all kinds of industries, right? Retailers need data analysts, public-sector institutions need data analysts just as much as a tech company could need a data analyst. The same is true for things like IT support, right? It’s not just tech companies that need IT support people. Educational institutions need IT support professionals. Businesses of all sizes, including small businesses, need IT support help.

Fuller: Everyone loves to keep score on programs with really traditional metrics. So how has this all turned out in terms of placement rates, in terms of income outcomes, in terms of uplift to increase diversity in these types of jobs?

Gevelber: Yeah, we track all of those things. I’m really excited to say that 55 percent of our graduates come from underrepresented groups, whether they’re Black, Latino, or Asian. About 40 percent of our graduates, when they start the program, come from the lowest-income tercile in our country. So they come from a place where they were making less than $30,000 a year, and they’re graduating into career fields that on average pay entry-level salaries of about $60,000 a year or more. So they’re getting a real uplift in their economic mobility. About 75 percent of our graduates say they got a significant career impact within six months of their graduation. And that could be a new job, but it could also be a promotion or a raise.

Fuller: Now, these are online delivered programs. I know a lot of people who are familiar with the Coursera’s of the world and the 2U’s of the world have found that a lot of the people relying on those media are already college graduates, and they’re seeking added credential to qualify for a new position or just learn something new. How do the demographics match up relative to people without degrees, your original target, versus those who are maybe trying to jump shift into different career or maybe have some college, no degree, if you have that data?

Gevelber: Our whole goal in starting this program was to create a more equitable and inclusive job market. We were really initially solving for people who don’t have college degrees—how could we make a high-quality industry-recognized credential that could serve as an alternative pathway. That said, we learned within the first year or so of our very first certificate that about 40 percent of people who were graduating with our certificate actually had degrees. When we dug in, what we found was people are rational, and they were quite smart in their approach to it. And if you look at Emsi Burning Glass data, it will tell you that, especially if you have a liberal arts or a humanities degree, if you complement that degree with a high-quality industry-recognized credential, you’ll become much more employable at significantly higher wages. And based on that information, we started kind of doubling down on our partnerships with higher ed.

Fuller: Of course, Emsi Burning Glass—now, new name Lightcast—but arguably the really definitive state-of-the-art provider of labor market data in the U.S. Historically, a lot of businesses have tried to augment training rather than align with educators and resources. And you had the creation of for-profit models like the 2U’s to do that. How about delivering this through academic partners? How have you approached that? Tell us more about the results and why you did it. How have you managed this whole ecosystem?

Gevelber: We have always worked with community colleges. Obviously, community colleges play such an important role in our country in terms of workforce development, and they’re also highly connected to employers. We’ve seen a lot of success with community colleges. Dallas College is a great example. As a matter of fact, there are 10 states now who have the Google Career Certificates in every one of their community colleges: Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Fuller: When you say that they’re in a community college, what does that mean?

Gevelber: So anyone can take our certificates online on demand, because we really built them for working people. We know that time and flexibility are a luxury in our country and that working people don’t have a lot of control over their time. Twenty percent of Americans don’t even know their work schedule for the next week. They certainly can’t control it, so they can’t necessarily commit to being in a classroom at certain times. That said, other people want the support of a cohort-based learning environment and feel like they learn a little better when there’s an instructor present. And so, what most community colleges are doing is supplementing all of the online content that you could do on your own with an instructor to provide additional help. We also have been recommended by the American Council on Education—ACE—for college credit. All of our certificates carry ACE-recommended credits—anywhere from eight to 12 credits, depending on which certificate. We’re very excited that people can either stack them into an associate’s or a bachelor’s degree.

Fuller: Well, that’s exciting, because so much of what’s called “career and technical education” [CTE] in community colleges is done separately from degree attainment. It doesn’t provide credit hours toward a degree attainment. Only a few are able to access things like Pell Grants and federal student loans to gain access to that CTE, which throws up lots of barriers to people who are on a career technical path and have a pretty clear line of sight to what they want to do, but the entire system is geared toward getting people in degree programs and financing them to complete them. What about four-year institutions? You’re partnering with some of them?

Gevelber: Yeah, we have great partnerships with four-year institutions. Some schools have built our content right into their curriculum, so you can take it as part of your broader degree study. Some schools, like ASU is an interesting example, have made it an on-ramp into the school. So if you complete one of our certificates—IT support and data analytics—at ASU, you not only earn 15 college credit hours, you get auto-admitted into the university, based on having completed the Google Career Certificate. Other schools provide credit for prior learning. Northeastern has been doing this for some time with the Google Career Certificates. So, for example, they will supply you 12 credits from Northeastern for the IT support certificate.

Fuller: So that’s full credit toward degree completion at Northeastern University, here in Boston. It’s also at Arizona State University, ASU. You said it’s an admissions ... Is that into their computer science program or some kind of tech program, or just general admission to the university?

Gevelber: It’s admission to the university. And I believe ASU is 15 credits.

Fuller: So it’s a very, very substantial offset to degree requirements.

Gevelber: Yeah, it’s basically a semester, almost a semester worth of credits, depending on which certificate and which school. But we are really building on that, and we’re finding even more creative models. So one example, Rutgers University, provides the Google Career Certificates, made it available for all of their alumni to take for free with a belief, I think, that it helps people—whether they’re career switching or get qualified if they’re entering their career in life—get qualified for a profession in a more specialized way. And then I’m really excited about partnerships that we’re doing with higher-education institutions. We’re specifically partnered with Columbia University, the University of Michigan, the University of Illinois, ASU, and Johns Hopkins. I’m super excited about this, because I think it shows the power of collaboration between public and private, and to your point, how do we work together to help people go from the world of education to the world of work, potentially. What we’ve done, actually, is created a set of companion certificates, where Google is teaching the basic certificate—so whether that’s data analytics or IT support—and then the university is building industry-specialization companion certificates on top. So one example, Google built a project management certificate, and Columbia’s School of Engineering built a construction management certificate on top. So they don’t need to teach all the basics of project management, since we’re already teaching that, but they can teach you how it applies to the industry of construction. Another example, we have a data analytics certificate. The University of Michigan built a companion certificate that is how to think about data analytics in the sphere of public policy. And so their Ford School of Public Policy, as well as their information school, built their certificate on top of ours. I think this is really, actually, revolutionary. The reason I say that is that never before could you, could anyone, learn from the experts at Google and world-class faculty in a very affordable and accessible way, no experience or application required.

Fuller: And often getting curriculum across departmental or school barriers in a university is, frankly, harder than going out and getting someone who’s got content. It’s also great to see what is obviously in the data analytics area—something that’s going to be integral to most good-paying jobs in the future—seeing it begin to find its way into programs that are more targeted on a career path and on an academic discipline. One of the things that we hear a lot about learners, and particularly learners without degrees, is the need for surround services; that we know that, for example, in several experiments, completion rates for associate’s degrees at community colleges were greatly enhanced if there were some additional services available to help with transportation and childcare and sometimes even small living stipends, because over half of community college students are so-called “working learners”—they’re holding down at least one job while studying. Has that figured into your program design or your work with these schools you’re partnered with?

Gevelber: Yeah, absolutely it has. We have been partnering with various workforce boards and nonprofits since the very beginning. We did something really special at the beginning of 2022. We took a step back. We have been supporting some of these kinds of surround supports, the things you were talking about—living stipends, transportation help, childcare, career placement help—through Google’s philanthropic arm—Google.org—for several years since we started the Google Career Certificate program. But what we realized, like so many others, is that it’s super hard to scale that philanthropic approach. By nature, you supply out the money, and then it’s gone. And there’s only so much. It’s never enough, really, to meet the need. And so we actually pioneered a really new model this year. We created a $100 million Social Finance Fund, with the ambition that that fund will create $1 billion in wage gains from the people who receive the support. The $100 million goes toward exactly the kind of wraparound support that you were just talking about. We’ve brought in MDRC to do the gold-standard measurements on this fund. They’re going to be doing a randomized control trial on this fund over several years. The way the fund works, we put money into the Social Finance Fund. Social Finance distributes it out to appropriate nonprofits. The first recipients of the fund have been Merit America and Year Up. And then Merit America and Year Up have tremendously successful programs that help people using the Google Career Certificates learn everything they need to learn to get one of these high-paying jobs. And then, when someone gets a job, assuming they earn at least $40,000 a year or more, they actually pay back to Merit America or to Year Up the cost of those wraparound supports. And that then funds the next person. So the fund is built to sustain itself, so that each person who is successful pays back, so that the next person can get that support. I think that’s a really inspiring and revolutionary new model for philanthropy that makes it inherently more sustainable and scalable. We are really holding ourselves accountable for the wage-gain results.

Fuller: Well, I feel compelled to say that that Gerald Chertavian, Harvard Business School graduate, has been a guest on our podcast. Connor Diemand-Yauman and Rebecca Taber Staehelin have been guests on our podcast, as has Tracy Palandjian from Social Finance. How do you see this being a basis for further growth?

Gevelber: We hope that this helps inspire many others in the philanthropic world to think differently about how we fund things like workforce development, because there is such a great need that we need to have ways that are inherently more sustainable and scalable than some of the traditional models.

Fuller: Lisa, when you talk about your business partners, you’re talking about Deloitte, your neighborhood-garden-variety $60 billion professional services group, other tech giants. How did these skills extend into smaller enterprises, which often are so desperately in need of them but don’t have access to talent necessarily because of their geographic location or because they’re bidding against the Adobes of the world for the talent, or for that matter, the Googles of the world for the talent?

Gevelber: We work with lots of small businesses here at Google. We did a lot to help small businesses—whether the pandemic, including hundreds of millions of dollars of capital that we put in to help small businesses through partners like the Opportunity Finance Network, but also even with our technology and tools. What we learned from small businesses is that a third of American small businesses said they would not have survived the pandemic without being able to pivot to more digital tools. We know from our data that small businesses who have digital talent and skills within them acquire customers at about 20 times the rate, versus non-savvy businesses. And about half of small businesses say that they don’t have the skills in house they need. So one of the things we did is, we made all of our career certificates available to every business in our country for free. We said, any business in America can have up to 500 licenses of the Google Career Certificates, which is about $100,000 value in workforce training programs for every business in America, completely for free—the idea being that most small businesses not only don’t have the talent or skills they need right now, they usually don’t have extensive budgets for upskilling or re-skilling or tuition-reimbursement programs. And so through this Career Certificate program, I think we’re really going to help businesses of all sizes be able to upskill or re-skill their folks. And that’ll really help also ensure that the people in those communities all over our country have easy access to that re-skilling or training.

Fuller: One thing that educators, particularly, express a lot of concern about is the difference between what they call “transferable” skills and what many people describe as “proprietary” or “sovereign” skills, that a lot of companies put forward training, which is specific to their technology, their approach, their taxonomy, and isn’t really that fungible into other roles. Also that many community colleges complain that companies talk to them about training, but it’s always training that’s so hyper-specific to the company’s specific needs that the community college says, “I can’t make the investment in course development for something that’s just all about what you want and isn’t going to attract applicants or upskilling candidates from other companies in a similar space.” How have you controlled for that? Have you been asked about that? Are these programs that are giving people skills that enable them to be attractive to employers that aren’t really, for example, relying on Google marketing and other tools that are so integral to your offers?

Gevelber: Yeah, absolutely. In all of our career certificates at Google, we’re teaching you how to succeed in a particular career field. We’re not teaching you Google software. So if you’re going to be a data analyst, you need to know SQL and R, and that’s what we teach. Those aren’t Google products. If you’re going to be a user experience designer, you need to know Adobe and Figma. Those are also not Google products, but that’s what we teach. We also, even in our e-commerce certificate, we teach Canva and HubSpot, the standard tools of the trade, because the whole goal is to help people really achieve economic mobility. And in order to do that, we have to be teaching them a variety of tools, not necessarily our own tools. There are a lot of offerings out there that teach you a specific software. And that’s not what we’re doing here. We’re teaching you how to be successful in the career, which might involve a variety of software, including many, many that are not Google tools. But we also think it’s important to teach people not just the hard skills of a career, but transferrable skills that set them up for life. And so all of our certificates teach problem solving and critical thinking, how to synthesize information. Our project management certificate teaches the things you need to be successful as a project manager, which means not just Gantt charts and the ROAM analysis, but it also means influencing without authority. It means, how do you help form consensus? How do you create psychological safety? Our user experience design certificate teaches how do you have customer empathy when you’re doing designs, how do you avoid bias, how do you overcome imposter syndrome. Our data analytics certificate teaches ethics, and it teaches privacy. So all these things are things that are not necessarily just about doing a particular career, but those are transferrable skills that people can take with them no matter what career they do next.

Fuller: So, Lisa, you mentioned that the program offers placement support. One of the things we certainly found in our research here at Harvard is that that very often employers have fairly routinized, almost stylized way they approach candidates, which is not familiar to a lot of people, particularly if they’re apply for their first job or they’ve only had jobs in lower-skilled roles before. Are you providing navigational aids that augment, for example, the financing options and the ability to get college credit for these courses?

Gevelber: Yeah, we’re doing a few things there. So first, we’re helping people translate what they learn in the certificates. We do that in two ways. One, we provide industry-specific or field-specific resume templates. So we help people understand how do you create a resume for data analytics, or how do you create a resume for IT support. The other thing we do is we ensure that when you leave, you have an genuine asset that you can bring with you to an interview to show your mastery. So if it’s the user experience design certificate, you get to create a portfolio as part of doing the certificate, and you take that portfolio with you to an interview. You’ve created a mobile web app, you’ve created a responsive website, and you’ve created a final UX design project. Now you have your own portfolio to bring with you. Similar for the project management certificate, you’ve created a project charter, you have Gantt charts, you have a ROAM analysis you bring with you. For data analytics, you have a full analysis that you’ve done, a full case study that you’ve done, start to finish, that you can take with you to an interview, an genuine capstone that you can use to prove your mastery. And then the last thing is, interviewing is tricky, and it’s hard, and practice helps. And so we provide every Career Certificate graduate with a full year of big interview training—that’s like a $900 value—where they can practice over and over again to get better at the interviewing, which is, actually, its own skill. I think those things are all, I think, really useful in terms of people knowing how to translate and talk about what they learned, as well as having some assets to prove what they know how to do.

Fuller: Things like that are invaluable, both because it builds the confidence of the applicant, but it also gives that proof to the employer of someone’s competence, not just their completion of a program. We certainly think that competency-based learning with those types of proofs of comprehension and abilities is not only important substantively, but also it sure makes that those interviews go more easily, because people are talking about things they’ve done as opposed to what they aspire to do, and they’re immediately able to demonstrate both enthusiasm and aptitude, which is attractive to any employer. Well, Lisa Gevelber, founder of Grow with Google, thanks for the update on your Career Certificates and the program. And keep doing innovative things and we’ll have you back again.

Gevelber: Thanks. Thank you so much, Joe. It’s a pleasure to be here.

When sharks are in a feeding frenzy, they become much more aggressive and active in their hunting. They swim rapidly and frantically through the water, often bumping into other sharks or objects in their path. Their mouths will be open wide, revealing their sharp teeth, as they snap at anything that comes near them. They are not picky eaters during a feeding frenzy and will eat just about anything they can get their teeth on, including other sharks. This aggressive behavior can last for hours or even days until the sharks are satiated. That’s the exact picture that comes to mind when we think of AcademicExperts. The company’s excellent recruitment process attracted and has retained some of the best writers in the industry. They then built a fair system for writers and customers to interact when placing orders.

Write my essay for money: Whom to trust and how to spot a fake service 

Are you searching for a writing service to “write my essay for money”? Many students find themselves in need of an online writing service, but with so many websites claiming to offer professional writing services, it can be hard to distinguish which ones are genuine. Unfortunately, there are plenty of fake online writing services out there that can take advantage of unsuspecting students. In this section, we’ll provide you with six ways to spot a fake online writing service, so you can avoid being defrauded and find the reliable help you need for your papers. 

Check the website's URL 

One of the best ways to spot a fake writing service is to check the website's URL. Most legitimate websites will have a secure connection (HTTPS instead of HTTP), and the URL will be visible in the address bar. A fake website will likely use a domain name like an established company but with a small change, such as using a different TLD or adding extra words or letters to the domain name. If the URL looks suspicious or is hard to read, it's an indication that you should proceed with caution. 

Check the customer testimonials 

One way to ensure that your chosen company is reliable and legitimate is to check out the customer testimonials. Ask yourself these questions: Are customers saying positive things on independent review sites? Are they leaving positive comments on the company's website? Do the testimonials seem authentic? Look for reviews from other websites, such as TrustPilot, SiteJabber, and Google Reviews, to get honest opinions from genuine customers. It's also important to check the testimonials on the company's website. Do the testimonials look genuine? Do they include detailed information about the customer's experience? Are there any negative reviews? If so, how does the company handle them? It's important to remember that not all companies will post negative reviews, so take those with a grain of salt. If you're still unsure after studying customer testimonials, don't hesitate to contact the company directly and ask questions. Get as much information as you can so that you can make an informed decision. With careful research, you'll be able to spot a fake online writing service and make sure you get the quality you deserve. 

See what type of services are offered 

When choosing an online writing service, it's essential to consider what type of services they offer. Companies that provide a wide range of services are usually teams of writers and editors who can handle any writing assignment. However, companies that provide a few services, such as essays in specific disciplines, are likely to be one-person operations. Additionally, when looking into the level of services an online writing service offers, ensure they offer services from high school to Ph.D. level. Legitimate companies should have experience writing essays for students at all levels of study. If a company only provides essay writing services for high school or college level assignments, this is a sign that they are likely not a professional writing service. It's also important to ask if the online writing service has any guarantees regarding the quality of their work. Professional online writing services should certain the satisfaction of their customers and should provide free revisions or refunds for unsatisfactory work. This is a sign that the company values customer satisfaction and is confident in its ability to deliver quality work. 

Check the prices 

With many companies offering 'too-good-to-be-true' prices, deciding which ones are legit and which ones are trying to swindle you out of your money can be challenging. However, there are a few ways to tell if a writing service is genuine. For example, if a writing service offers prices too good to be true, it's probably not legitimate. Cheap prices may seem like a good idea, but they often come with poor-quality work or, worse, no work. On the other hand, extremely high prices are also something to watch out for; these might indicate that the company is taking advantage of customers. Finding a balance between quality and price is important when choosing an online writing service. In fact, you should always focus on getting the most value for your money. Another way to get great prices for writing services is to use discounts. Many online writing services offer discounts or coupon codes for customers to take advantage of. Using these coupons can save money on your order without sacrificing quality. 

Check the quality of their writers 

Another way to determine a service's quality is by assessing its writers' quality. The first step is to read any reviews you can find about the writers that work for the service. Reviews from past customers can supply you a good indication of how satisfied people are with the services they received. Be sure to look for complaints and ensure the writers are experienced enough to produce quality work. Another great way to assess the quality of the writers is to request samples of their previous work. You should also inquire about their educational qualifications and experience levels. This can help you better understand their work's caliber and whether they suit your needs. Ask questions and find out if the writers have any specialties or certifications. This can help you determine if they have the knowledge and skills to complete your project successfully. Researching, checking reviews, and requesting samples can ensure you get the best possible service for your needs. 

Check the website's design and quality 

One of the best ways to spot a fake online writing service is to examine its website design closely. A professional web design should look modern, be easy to navigate, and be optimized for mobile devices. A website with a bad design or many errors and broken links is usually a warning sign that the company is not legitimate. It's also important to consider the overall quality of the website design. If it looks dated or generic, it could be a sign that the company is unreliable. Additionally, note how the website looks on different devices – if it doesn't look right on mobile phones or tablets, it's probably not worth investing in. The website's overall appeal is also a key indicator of its legitimacy. If the site has excellent graphics, animations, or other visual elements, then it's likely to be trustworthy. Conversely, if the visuals are poorly designed or outdated, then there's a chance that the company is not worth investing in. Furthermore, a professional website should also have information readily available about its services and how to contact them. Look for the website's contact information. Most professional online writing services will have a contact page with an email address and phone number listed. More reputable companies even have their physical addresses included. It is likely a scam if the website does not list any contact information or has a generic email address. Finally, look at the website's content. If the website looks outdated, has grammar mistakes, or has no reviews or testimonials, then it's probably not a legitimate online writing service. 

Doing the above can prevent you from being swindled and ensure you get the quality service you deserve. 

Write essay for money: Guarantees to look out for 

When using an online essay writing service, there are several guarantees that you should look out for. These include a money-back guarantee, a plagiarism-free guarantee, and a satisfaction guarantee. 

The money-back certain ensures that you will get your money back if you are not satisfied with the quality of the essay. The companies reviewed in this article will always issue a full refund if you're dissatisfied with the work you've received. 

The plagiarism-free certain means that the essay will be 100% original and not be copied from another source. Reputable companies will always provide a plagiarism report with each order, assuring you of their uniqueness. 

The satisfaction certain ensures that you will be happy with the final product. And if you're not, the company offers to revise the work. If that fails, they'll refund you. Therefore, before settling for any service that write essay for money, do some digging.

Killexams : Revolutionizing Hotel Sales Functions With Technology

Akash is a serial entrepreneur building Atica, a hotel sales & revenue technology company disrupting manual proactive sales processes.

The hotel industry is a major player in the global economy, raking in more than a trillion dollars in revenue. And let's be real, who doesn't love a good hotel stay? But have you ever wondered who's behind all those bookings? Enter the unsung heroes of the hotel industry: the sales team. For 2019, Kalibri Labs analysts estimated that a total of approximately 42% of hotel room revenue in the U.S. was generated by the sales functions (a combination of corporate and group sales) at hotels through reactive and proactive sales.

Sales functions play a vital role in capturing profitable and repeat business from sources such as meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE), groups and local/national corporations, which in turn contributes to the overall revenue of the hotel.

As the industry continues to evolve and technology becomes more prevalent, it's essential for hotels to adopt technology to stay abreast of the changing world. Proactive sales in the hotel industry are still done using manual methods, which include finding leads in local markets manually and reaching out to them through cold calling. This approach isn't only time-consuming and laborious but also requires a significant investment of resources. Furthermore, the process of introducing a property to businesses within a five-mile radius can take up to a year in a big market like New York City or Miami.

Although higher-end brands like Marriott and Hilton may provide CRM software to their franchisees, it typically isn't fully utilized, often limited to basic tracking and reporting use cases. This traditional approach is in contrast to other industries that have embraced technology to streamline and automate various aspects of their sales functions, such as lead generation, lead qualification, sales closure and post-sales relationship management, resulting in a more efficient and effective sales process. Case in point: SaaS companies have integrated technology deeply into all stages of the sales process. They're able to execute on international-scale proactive B2B sales, all digitally.

Fortunately, there are several technology advancements available today that can enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of proactive sales professionals in the hotel industry. These include:

• Lead Generation: For any effective sales campaign, leads are the raw material. Platforms like ZoomInfo, Google Places API, Lusha and Linkedin can provide valuable information on local businesses. Lead management tools can merge leads from various sources, deduplicate them and maintain the most up-to-date information for the best top-of-the-funnel leads—all stored in a lead bank.

• Lead Enrichment And Qualification: Multiple lead sources contribute to enriching a prospect with maximum data points. Moreover, with hundreds of leads available, lead scoring is critical for effective prioritization. Using factors such as the industry, size and proximity of a business to a hotel, as well as the hotel's product offerings, lead scoring can help sales professionals prioritize, qualify and focus on the most promising leads.

• Automated Outreach Campaigns: Imagine reaching out to hundreds of businesses in a month instead of multiple quarters. With contact information for most businesses and employees readily available, reaching out via email can be an effective way to generate interest and qualify leads. Tools can help track open and reply rates to optimize the process and update lead scores.

• System Integration (CRM): All three functions discussed above must be integrated for effective automation. Connecting the customer relationship management (CRM) tool with the hotel's central reservation system (CRS) can further simplify post-sales efforts. Dashboards can highlight contracts that are at risk of being lost, those that aren't meeting expectations and those that have further scope for upselling. Automated communications and reminders also help strengthen the relationship.

In conclusion, technology has proven its efficacy in other industries—it's time for it to revolutionize the sales process in the hotel industry. With the use of lead generation tools, lead scoring intelligence and email CRM campaigns, sales professionals can greatly enhance their effectiveness. By leveraging these technology advancements, hotels can effectively compete with other hotels and drive significant growth in revenue.
