Just recently there have been some high profile executives across North America not telling the truth about themselves on their resumes. Not only is this unethical, but it severely diminishes your credibility as a candidate for a position. In fact, it stops your career from progressing
Just in the last week a senior police officer from my local police service was reprimanded internally after he pleaded guilty to four charges of misconduct resulting from repeated false claims of having a university degree when he was applying for promotions to high-ranking positions.
Not only will the senior police officer be unable to move his career forward, he has been docked most of his annual vacation entitlement and has been ordered to return to school to complete the four year Police Studies program at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario.
