Do job candidates really lie during the hiring process?
Unfortunately, the answer is yes. It is quite common for job seekers to provide false information on their resumes and cover letters, be dishonest in job interviews, offer fake references, and the list goes on. As a result, it is critical that companies protect themselves from these falsifications, including running background checks on potential hires.
