Web of lies

20 February 2009
New research by the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors suggests that more than a third of people embellish or lie on their CV. The poll of 1,200 workers found that more than 30 per cent had jazzed up their CV to make it more appealing to employers. I'm sure we are all prone to the odd exaggeration, but are there any buyers ready to admit to a full-blown lie?
