    Can people tell which college you went to? Or is there some way they can actually look up and see if you went to college? The reason why I am asking is because I know two different fields very well. And when applying for jobs many people do not believe me when I tell them I never went to college. In some interviews I have had many people ask me 2 or 3 times if I went to college. I had a few people tell me they thought I was telling a lie.

    They can find out. Almost all college's in the US post the graduation rosters with peoples names and years and degrees. Plus if they do a background check they will probably find out for sure.

    It just depends on the college. Some of them have public directories of their alumni (mine included), some do not. So choose wisely if you're going to fake that you went to a school.

    I am not making this up.. but so many people do not believe that I didn't go to college. I am not the greatest web designer to walk the earth not by far.. I don't understand why some people don't believe me.. so I think I might just start putting it down that I went to college maybe..
