Once upon a time, students wrote essays at university. Now they're able to hire unemployed professors to do that for them - or at the very least that's what 1 Montreal-based on the internet service is providing. Unemployed Professors connects essay-dreading students with teachers willing to write papers for a fee. The tag line says it all: "So you can easily play although we make your papers go away." The internet site "unabashedly defends its actions around the grounds that education has already turn out to be overly commodified and academia is downsizing the tenure program," Karen Seidman wrote for Postmedia News. Student-run essay mills aren't new, Schubert Laforest, president from the Concordia Student Union, told the National Post, but "it's the first I've heard of professors undertaking students' operate." "It just seems to hinder the academic method. The focus should be on acquiring capabilities, not trying to get an easy A. But I'm confident some students will reap the benefits of it." Plagiarism software is what drives some students to get custom-written essays. Unemployed Professors https://www.unemployedprofessors.xyz/ explains: "The whole reason why you're working with this services is in order that your lazy ass doesn't itself have to plagiarize. Long answer? We source and cite everything we write around the basis of our extended knowledge of non-plagiarizing. Brief answer? No, you're not going to acquire caught unless you do anything stupid like tell everyone that you bought an essay."
