We all lie just to get through the day. It’s the lubrication of life.
If all of us didn’t tell the occasional white lie, society wouldn’t function as a unit.
Your candidate will ultimately lie to you. They will lie on an application, or they’ll lie on their resume. Don’t take it personally; it’s not about you. As far as your candidate is concerned, you are a stepping-stone to their dream job.
However, don’t let the lie go. If you think that your candidate may not be truthful, you need to address it. A small lie will be a big deal if your candidate makes it all the way through the hiring process. Your candidates are your brand, you don’t want to a client to have a bad experience with your dishonest candidate.
It doesn’t matter how perfect a candidate is, if you are not upfront about their past there will never be a positive outcome.
Good headhunting is never personal. It’s not about you!
