Anthony Haynes writes: Printerland have published the results of a survey on falsification of CVs. The survey attempts to gauge both the prevalence and nature of falsification and also probes what happens when, as is often the case, falsification is subsequently discovered.
A summary of the survey’s (rather dismaying) findings is available here.
Fiona Wilson, Managing Director of FJWTS, offers the following thoughts:
“At FJWTS we have a very simple view on this: Don’t do it! When it comes to falsifying CVs, we have a zero-tolerance approach. Falsification’s both unethical and unwise: it’s great way of destroying one’s personal brand!”
