Can You Spot the Real Resume?


More job-seekers lie on their resume than you might expect, according to a CareerBuilder.com survey of more than 3,100 hiring managers and 8,700 workers nationwide.

While only 8% of workers admitted to bending the truth, nearly half of hiring managers reported they caught a candidate lying on a resume. The most common resume lies reported were:

Embellished responsibilities (38%)

Skill set (18%)

Dates of employment (12%)

Academic degree (10%)

Companies worked for (7%)

Job title (5%)

What happens when fact turns out to be fiction? Almost 60% of hiring managers who caught a candidate in a fib said they automatically dismissed the applicant.
