And a half a million will lose their unemployment benefits. Over time people get less cordial!
To Lie or not lie, that is the question?
While I do not think this is the best approach in any circumstance, I believe we see more and more of people taking the “grey-area” road rather than being truly truthful in their interview process. This also goes for employers and their hiring reporesentatives.
It doesn’t matter if you are a fresh graduate, mid-level employee with a couples years experience trying to move up or a senior executive wanted to hit the C-level:
People lie in their interviews, no matter how big or small.
Companies lie in their interviews, no matter how big or small.
But don’t you think that the recruiting process, coupled with the current tight market and economic downturn just encourages people to use up their “white” lies even more?
What do you think. Ever catch a candidate | employer in a lie?
So you have been unemployed for a while.
You may even have a job and starting a new one?
What do you do now? How do you transition into a new role? What should you think about before you begin?
Many of these questions will be answered. With contributions from LANCE HAUN of ReHaul, SHAUNA MOERKE of the HR Minion, ALISON GREEN from Ask A Manager, CHARLIE JUDY from HR FishBowl, SHARLYN LAUBY of HRBartender and me BENJAMIN MCCALL of ReThinkHR.org.
