With the stiff competition for jobs, some applicants tend to ‘exaggerate’ their CVs. This exaggeration can take the form of increasing CGPA, it could be a job title that sounds a bit more impressive than the actual job position the applicant held in reality. Depending on the CV, candidates may list jobs they never had, companies they never worked for, degrees they’ve never received or professional certificates they do not possess.
If you are an employer, how can you avoid hiring someone who is not nearly as qualified as they led you to believe?
Always remember, stay legal when making enquiries about references and verification checks. If you don’t want to do all the calling by yourself, there are companies that you can hire to verify key pieces of CV information, like Dragnet’s Verifications. Our Verification service is designed to ensure that applicants claims are independently verified while adopting the highest level of integrity.
In an ideal world, every CV would be an accurate reflection of an applicant’s educational and professional history. While not every applicant would lie, in the off chance that you discover an inaccuracy in your top candidate’s CV, have it verified before submitting it for interview.
