    I can't remember the last time someone actually CHECKED to verify a High School graduate.

    Although there are several that "require" them.

    A GED is fine for any company requiring High School grad status.

    You will not have any problem with a GED. I have a GED and it has never stopped me from getting a job. It is generally accepted as a high school diploma equivalent.
