Who Lies on Their Resumes? [infographic]

Serious y’all? I can’t believe almost 46% of resumes stretch the truth. I’ve been busting my ass building my resume since I first left for college, now four years in I have a polished plethora of experience across multiple fields. Now I’m thinking, why didn’t I just lie about all of it?

The fact is, you want to perform well at your job. Lying about previous expertise can put one in a pickle once they start their occupation. Making simple mistakes and being oblivious to your industry’s jargon are telltale signs of a deceptive resume. With the job market how it is though, more and more people are taking extreme measures to ensure employment. Lying about degrees, past positions and inflating previous salaries are prime examples.

One program helping to combat the false resume is LinkedIn. I have my resume up for all to see online, and my previous employers and coworkers can literally verify my experience. I have references and resume endorsements from real people that any potential employer can contact. Using linkedIn for hiring is a must and the statistics in today’s infographic only reinforce the fact that not everyone is honest. [Via]

Ahhh, the snow-capped mountains of Whistler. Some will say there’s no better place in the world to spend a snow-filled vacation. This oasis of ice and snow is home to only 10,000 permanent residents, but these hard-working Canucks facilitate millions of visitors every year. This skiing mecca is home to the Horstman Glacier, or the reason why skiing in whistler is an almost year-round sport. Until late July, weather reaching into the 70′s greats the vacationer with a slope to ski and a sun to tan.

Aside from the year-round entertainment, lodgings in Whistler are top notch. Secluded town-homes, luxury hotels and convenient condominiums dot the mountainside. Multiple championship golf-courses and a vibrant city night life help keep all types of visitors grinning from ear to ear.

Whistler is a powerhouse of a vacation destination. Families, romantics and skiing enthusiasts flock to this beautiful city in British Columbia not because it is 2nd best, but because it is the best. [Expedia]
