Marilee Jones: How To Get Ahead In Education

by | 28th, April 2007

MARLIEE Jones, former adminstration assistant at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, knows the power of a good education, and good grades.

As the Boston Globe reports:

“NO DOUBT, Marilee Jones did the wrong thing. Decades ago, she claimed to have earned three academic degrees when she applied for a job as an administrative assistant at MIT. She rose through the ranks and became well known as an admissions dean with a heart.

This week, however, she was exposed. Someone questioned her credentials. And an inquiry revealed that she held none of the degrees on her resume.”

Says Marilee Jones: “I misrepresented my academic degrees when I first applied to MIT 28 years ago,” she said in a statement, “and did not have the courage to correct my resume when I applied for my current job or at any time since.”

But does it matter. Was she good at her job? And why was she grassed up an anonymous caller?
