Could blockchain bring the end of resume exaggeration?

February 15, 2018View for printing

all it exaggeration or stretching the truth, the fact is that many people lie on their resume. For recruiters and hiring managers, the problem is so widespread that it is, to some degree, expected.

How much are Americans lying? A recent survey by HireRight revealed that 85% of HR professionals have found a lie on a resume. The lies don't seem to have abated with low unemployment; that number is up from 66% five years ago.

When asked, 46% of employees report knowing someone who misrepresented or exaggerated their resume, according to Office Team. What are they fudging about? The most common lie centers on experience, followed by duties, education and employment.
