Why do we need to verify resumes’ on every applicant before we hire them?

Posted in: Blog by parkerpi on June 30, 2014

We hear that question almost every week.  Well, it is really quite simple. For one reason or another, a significant number of applicants tell outright lies on their resumes and applications. It’s estimated that 50% of all candidates resumes have some type of meaningful discrepancy: 35% of these discrepancies are related to employment dates, 29% are related to salary, 24% are related to job title, and 12% are related to education and degrees earned. Employers have only one real option to learn the truth about candidates – diligently contact former employers and academic institutions. Resume distortions are a serious breach of trust – individuals who are comfortable embellishing their backgrounds are also more comfortable being dishonest in other ways that could damage an organization profoundly. Let us help you with this time consuming task.
