Applying for a job which one is not fully qualified for

Q: I want to ask that earning from an intercede job is halaal or haram? I mean one was not fully qualified for a job I mean government is equipping clerks in schools. The criteria is a good typist and they prefer to inter pass student. While one can type but not according to demand and is metric pass and doing his intern. So he applies for that job and and a famous man intercedes on his behalf and he gets selected so earning from that job will be halaal or haram?

A: It will be halaal.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
