    TDCJ Employment Question

    I am 19 years old. I took the TDCJ Pre-Employment test and passed it and did an interview with the recruiter. During the interview the recruiter asked for my
    HS Diploma. I gave it to her and she said it wasn't on her list of schools. I graduated from a private school in 2011 called New Beginnings Christian School. It's accrediting organization standards are very close to the TEA agency for public schools.. The recruiter told me she would have to get back to me about wether they would accept my diploma or not. Could this keep me from getting the job? I am very worried it will. Can anybody answer this please?

    I can only speculate as its the Recruiters decision but if the school isn't acredited then it probably won't count. Its like going to an online college and trying to transfer credits. Not all traditional campus's will accpet the credits. Good luck

    Re: TDCJ Employment Question

    Don't know if this will help but here is my experience in North Carolina....I didn't have proof of HS graduation when I went in for the final day of processing. I did however have a sealed transcript with 6 years worth of college and graduate level education..........and they STILL wanted proof of HS graduation!!! Crazy!!! I had sealed transcripts from Grad school and still had to get my HS transcript faxed to the Regional Office. Some things just make no sense.

    I hope things work out for you!!! You're very young and could have a great career with early retirement!
