Woman Makes Fake TIME Cover As CV, Gets A Job In The US State Department

| Published on November 14, 2019

This is exactly why employee background checks are necessary. 

Headings were made when a senior Trump administration official was busted for faking her resume with misleading claims about her professional background. 

Mina Chang, the deputy assistant secretary in the State Department’s Bureau of Conflict Stability Operations not just inflated her educational achievements and exaggerated the scope of her nonprofit’s work but also created a fake Time magazine cover with her face on it which read, “We change the world: Modern humanitarian in the digital age.”

When asked about her the feature on the magazine cover during the interview she said, “We used drone technology in disaster response. I suppose I brought some attention to that.”

As per Chang’s biography, she is an alumna of the Harvard Business School and has addressed the Republican and Democratic National Conventions while in reality she was enrolled in some other program at Harvard, different from the Institute’s prestigious business administration degree and her claims about speaking to the Republican and Democratic National Conventions were also found out to be false. 

Interestingly, after the information went viral it was found out that even Donald Trump had his own fake copies of Time magazine on display in at least five of his golf clubs.

Soon after the news broke our, Chang’s social media accounts have gone offline and there have been no official comments made from the State Department.
