Do YOU believe everything in a candidate's CV?

The Recruitment Risk Index by Xref recently found that 97% of Canadians denied asking a referee to exaggerate on their behalf but 68% of employers said they were convinced they were being lied to when they checked the references by phone.

The survey said that 38% of those surveyed have been named by a friend for employment reference, but 50% suggest it 's more important to put forth a "good reference" versus a direct manager.

Results also revealed that Facebook has more use for employers than LinkedIn or Google, those 30-49 are more likely to exaggerate details and millennial jobseekers are among the most anxious of those surveyed.
