Information Equals Protection.
From Information to Intelligence
In 2017 we statistically analyzed over 200 individual expert resumes for trends in CV misrepresentations and recorded our findings (see Graph to right). While we also looked at other variables, we found that inaccuracies on a curriculum vitae are more common than one may realize.
Our original research and analyses showed the following:
- Up to 49% of the time, an individual’s CV misrepresents at least one current employer or employment position.
- As much as 39% of the time, the CV misrepresents an active membership in a profession.
- Up to 20% of the time, the CV misrepresents an active board certification.
