People Lie On Resumes
A new study reported by the Associated Press has discovered that people are less likely to lie about large details on public profiles. Now at first glance this seems like a positive statement but upon further review the article states that even on a public profile about 90% of the randomly selected participants lied at least once and on average people lied 3 times on their profiles. Honesty and integrity are traits that company’s look for so is there really any reason to fabricate?
