Unfortunately, not everyone is honest on their resume. Almost half of all workers (46 percent) polled by staffing firm Office Team knew of someone who lied on their resume. This is a 25 percent jump from the company’s 2011 survey, with 77 percent lying about job experience and 55 percent lying about the duties performed. The problem is: how do you spot someone who lies on their resume? It might be exhausting, but it’s not unfeasible. All you need to know is what to look for. Maybe someone who is young or seems inexperienced has already claimed to be quite high up in a company. Or maybe someone has exaggerated about the length of time they worked somewhere.
