Lying on resumes at all time high

Thanks to my colleague, Jude Werra, for publishing his annual "Liars Index News." He has calculated that lying about education on resumes has reached an all-time high. Nearly 30% of the resumes he surveyed contained false claims about education! 30%! And education is one of the easiest things to verify on a resume. Yet, too few hiring executives check. So be diligent. Check education credentials before you go very far in your recruiting efforts. It will save you a lot of time and effort.
