Beware of 'Doctored' CVs

If you are hiring staff for the tourist season- then beware of the doctored CV.

A survey has claimed that two thirds of CVs received by employers contain lies or exaggerations.

The survey by CPL Job Market Monitor also revealed  that 80% of employers decide on a candidate’s viability for a job within five minutes of meeting them.

Given the competition for some jobs, it is perhaps no surprise that CVs become embellished — and the CPL survey findings illustrate why it might not be a good idea.

It found 65% of employers had discovered a candidate had falsified their experience on their applications.

CPL also says that many CV 'howlers' are rumbled by employers because the candidate has not properly researched the 'lies'.
