Why don’t people show off the evidence of their acadmic achievement?
In my experience, most people keep their academic and professional degrees out of sight, or at least away from their workplaces. Is it considered bad form to show off your diplomas?
I used to work at a publishing house where many of the editors were JD+CPA+LLM/MST, and the only diploma they put up on the wall was for the successful completion of the in-house course on “Introduction to Marketing III: Deceptive Pie Charts” or somesuch.
I can only recall ever seeing one person in the U.S. (the human resources director of a big downtown Chicago hotel) having his diploma on the wall of his office.
I have my degrees and certificates framed on the wall in my home office. Where are yours?
