One In Four Jobseekers Admit Lying On CV
"Over a quarter (28%) of UK job hunters lie on their CV, according to new research from independent job board CV-Library. The survey revealed that, of those that admitted to lying, 9.2 percent said their false information was significant, suggesting that recruiters should be on their guard. ""For businesses, this is just another reason to make sure they 're one step ahead when it comes to recruiting,"" said Lee Biggins, managing director of CV-Library. From the findings, the number of people who admit to lying on their CV may actually seem surprisingly low but the research showed this could be due to ambiguity of what constitutes a lie."
