More than 50 pc people fudge facts on their CV's

Melbourne, Sept. 2 : A study has found that nearly 53 per cent of job applicants lied on their resumes, according to the US Society of Human Resource Management.


Other studies have quoted the figure as high as 80 per cent.

Australian recruitment marketing firm Employment Office recently conducted a survey in April that found that 82 per cent of workers believe that candidates lie about or exaggerate their skills and experience on their LinkedIn profiles, News.com.au reported.

The survey also found that about 66 per cent workers believe job titles and responsibilities in their earlier roles are the most untrustworthy pieces of information, followed by periods of unemployment and education and qualifications.
