Your candidates are lying to you - and getting away with it
How far would your candidates go to secure that perfect job? While you might expect the occasional white lie about experience or small exaggeration of technical skills, some are willing to take dishonesty to the next level with outright lies and fake references.
Adzuna.co.uk conducted a survey of 3,587 participants either in, or looking for, employment. When asked if they had lied on their CV, a whopping 37%, or just over a third, admitted to doing so at some stage in their professional career. Of those that had lied on their CV, 83% said they still got the job, with 43% stating that their lie directly contributed to them bagging the role.
