Look for 5 Common Resume Lies to Find Honest Candidates

Every entrepreneur would love to have the right tools to spot a liar on paper before the interview happens. While normal fudging on a resume is to be expected, direct lying is never a good thing. Employers need to know the five most common lies and watch for them while they are busy trying to find candidates.

1. Falsifying Grades
This is the most common resume lie because graduates can easily bump their GPA up on paper. While many people will not list a fake degree, they will list a higher-than-real GPA. Require any potential employees or interviewees to supply transcripts before moving forward in the interview process.

2. Graduation Dates
As candidates age, it becomes tougher to stand up to the younger competition. The temptation to change the graduation year is very strong when it will place the candidate in the same bracket as the younger, fresher competition. Make sure to ask for those transcripts mentioned above.

3. Exaggeration in Job Experience
Some desperate candidates will bloat their work experience or job titles. This lie can be tough to catch when talking to candidates, but will come out through contact with references. It's also a good idea to get permission to speak with old supervisors to get the truth.

4. Language Fluency
Being fluent in a foreign language makes an applicant look better on paper, so this lie will come up on occasion. If there is any reason to doubt, learn a few phrases and try them out on the applicant. Better yet, ask a fluent friend to sit in on the interview. The lie will come out quickly and you will understand more about the morale of the candidate.

5. Technical Knowledge
As with language fluency, computer skills are very easy to fudge on a resume. Luckily, this lie is easier to test without the help of a friend. Ask a potential employee to take a free online test for the skills which they claim to have. You'll find out before the person leaves the interview if they can do what they claim.
If you need any further help with spotting a liar, or if you're interested in finding great employees, contact us today and we'll get you started.

Feature for jobs pages hosted by Jobvertise

We have added a new feature to reduce spam for companies that host their jobs pages with Jobvertise. If you allow free postings to your jobs page we automatically add a CAPTCHA image and field to reduce spam. The CAPTCHA field is an image that requires a human to type the letters in order to verify the code. We also offer an audio playback method for those who have trouble reading the image.

This prevents automatic bots from posting and cluttering up your jobs page. Note that pages that require payments for posting using our Jobcharge system will not be affected.

If you have any questions about this change please contact us.

Human Resources' Tool Can Help Managers Uncover Resume Red Flags

With all of the people looking for work these days, human resource managers truly have their work cut out for them. On a positive note, there are ways that HR Directors can ease their staff’s workloads. One of them is to use a human resources’ tool that can quickly help HR team members identify resume red flags.

A human resources' tool that falls into that category is Jobvertise. Jobvertise allows employers to complete several key functions that are helpful in uncovering resume red flags. For example, employers may use select search criteria that will help them eliminate overqualified individuals and those that are outside of the firm’s geographical area.

In addition, Jobvertise is a human resources’ tool that permits employers to directly view a person’s e-mail. The e-mail that a person uses to submit a resume can be a red flag too. Take the case of a job seeker that uses his or her current employer’s e-mail account to submit a resume as an example. It indicates that the person does not have a problem using his or her employer’s assets for personal gain.

Use of unusual e-mail addresses like “partyallthetime@” could also signal a potential problem.
Furthermore, employers using Jobvertise as a human resources’ tool also have the capability of separating current resumes from aging ones. As such, the hassle of sifting through the resumes of applicants that feasibly have long employment gaps or outdated skills is greatly reduced.

Helping to identify resume red flags is not the only benefit to be gained by using a human resources’ tool like Jobvertise either. It also offers busy HR staff the opportunity to complete the following tasks with ease:
  • Secure featured and super featured ad placement
  • Protect sensitive e-mail addresses from view
  • Batch import multiple job openings
  • Create a customized job page
  • Search resumes for free
For more information about using Jobvertise to ease your HR team’s often overwhelming work load, please contact us online. Jobvertise, Inc. is an Illinois based firm with experience assisting more than 200,000 companies with their human resources needs.
