A SURVEY RELEASED today found that 65 per cent of employers said they had been lied to by job candidates on their CVs.

Some of the most popular lies included a ‘return to the home country’ which was actually an eight month spell in prison and a claim to have had full responsibility for accounts at a company though the person didn’t know what a basic return looked like.

So, we want to know: Have you ever lied on your CV?


Poll Results:

No (3924)
Yes (2096)
