Six Most Frequent Lies Job Seekers Tell Potential Employers

Most Frequent Lies Job Seekers Tell Potential Employers

When a person is qualified for a job, there is no need for that person to lie about education, skills, or experience. Common sense says you should never lie on your resume or in a job interview. Any lies that potential employers detect on your resume or during an interview can cost you the job opportunity before you get a job offer. Lying can also come back to haunt you after you start to work.

Nonetheless, many job seekers still lie.

During my three decades as a corporate recruiter, I found the most common lies fall into these six categories:

Job titles: Job seekers will word their job titles make it appear that they held a role with greater responsibility than the role they actually hold. Education: People will occasionally lie about having graduated from a college program, credentialing program, or a trade school program they have started but not finished. Hard skills: Hard skills are skills that a person uses to perform specific tasks. Lying about hard skills is a quick way to be caught lying. If the job requires that job applicants have certain hard skills, the employer will know that the applicant lied as soon as they start to work and can’t do the job. Employment dates: People often try to hide …More»

“The Signs Your Boss Really Doesn’t Like You”

Gmail Lets You Enable Undo Send Emails

Gmail finally lets you Enable Undo Send Emails

Gmail lets you enable undo send emails.

I am reading a great deal about Google’s new Gmail setting that allows the sender to block each email for 5 to 30 minutes for when the writer has second thoughts on whether they should check the content more thoroughly. I am not convinced that a delay like that helps in any way. Isn’t a better method just to save each email as a draft and review the email before you click “Send?”

I am trying the new feature.

If you wish to set up your email for this feature, click on the gear in the upper right hand corner of Gmail. This will open Gmail to the settings page. Halfway down the page, you will see a radio button with the option “Enable Undo Send.” Below that setting is a drop down menu to set the email delays for 5, 10, 20, or 30 minutes.

Here are Mashable’s thoughts on the subject: Gmail finally lets you ‘Undo Send’ emails you wish you didn’t send. Mashable.com
