More false claims on CVs

Over the last year there has been a sizeable increase in the number of false claims made on CVs according to studies by Candidate Health Check. The research, analysed quarterly, found that 37% of CVs contain incorrect information about a number of education-related details, which is a 36% increase from last year. Just over half of candidates’ CVs contain at least one error, with 33% of inaccuracies about employment history.

Minor mistakes to do with dates are often made innocently, however false claims concerning grades, courses and previous jobs are more often calculated risks with candidates relying on employers not checking.                               DP
