Study exposes risk in carer recruitment as most applicants lie during interviews

CQE surveys always reveal the genuine applicants

81% of people in a study lied about themselves during job interviews, with the more extroverted being more apt to tell untruths, say Brent Weiss and Robert S. Feldman of the University of Massachusetts. When the job requirements were more technical, deception increased, probably because applicants were trying to compensate for their lack of job-required skills. Participants in the study told an average of 2.19 lies per 15-minute interview.
