Catching lies on candidates' resumes
According to Fortune, more and more people are lying on their resumes. Drawing from research conducted by CareerBuilder, Fortune reports that 58 percent of hiring managers have seen “exaggerations or outright fabrications” on resumes, and a third of hiring managers agree that candidates have been lying more often since the Great Recession. Couple the prevalence of resume lies with the fact that recruiters tend to look at those resumes for a grand total of six seconds apiece, and the situation doesn’t look terribly sunny. How do we catch lies we’re not even taking the time to look for?
