LYING ON LINKEDIN

We can all quote examples of people lying on CVs and we generally take a degree of exageration for granted.  But for some reason we seem to take social media on trust!  We are wrong!  I for one have come across a profile on LinkedIn for someone I had worked with briefly  – he claimed a much longer experience at a much more senior level.  The silly thing was,  he had asked me to be a connection – at least he didn’t ask for a reference! Anyway here is an interesting blog post on the subject
