Presenting fake certificates when applying for a job

Q: I am working in a gulf country and I given some wrong certificates. I always doubt whether my job is haram or halal. I graduated applied to many companies but they did not choose me as I did not have experience. I gave a record of fake experience and some certificates and I did not show my actual graduation degree. I got a small level job. After getting the job, I informed the interviewer that I had given wrong certificates. Is my income haram or halal? 

A: If the job you are employed for is permissible and you are capable of fulfilling the work which is assigned to you, then your earnings are halaal.

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