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.
