I have seen plenty of great-looking CVs - especially from offshore staff - who clearly think by talking big they can get a "big" job. ..............
This has become a real problem in the last 10 years, as the market has become increasingly swamped with CVs from liars, so it becomes harder for recruiters to identify the people who really do have the skills/experience to do a particular job. Many organisations fail to filter out the crud CVs adequately (or are restricted by having to work via consultancy agreements that do not provide any decent candidates anyway) so they end up recruiting liars. This costs money in wasted recruitment effort, poor performance, or replacement costs for useless staff, and also contributes to pushing honest skilled workers out of the job market.

There is a lot of talk in the IT industry about the "skills shortage", but there is no shortage of liars in any industry. If people think they have the skills and experience to get a job, let them compete for it on the basis of their real skills/experience and may the best candidate win. But if they want a "career" as a liar, I suggest they stick to marketing or politics and leave the serious work to people who know what they are doing.



so much knowledge about recruitment.

i too had 90% real experience .. but added 10% fake experience since i had a gap in my career during 2008 recession.

so paid the price now by getting fired...



Most important is you come here in public forum, search 5 years old discusssion and make the public announcement of it at 12 AM midnight. That tells it all. I am not encouraging people to add fake experience. What I am upset about is when it comes to ethics, it is candidates and HR consultants can do anything. Since it is public forum I can not write everything.

And the bottom line is which always worked "It is not if you have some fake experience or real experience. What is important is can you out perfom for which you have hired." That matters in most of the companies including the company which you mentioned. I personally know one person who was fired from service company and joined the company which you mentioned and working there from 7 years, doing very well.

And people will *real* experience have done well in their careers too.


Did I say people with real experience did not do well? People with real experience are out of context of what I said.

i got fired in IBM recently...


1 year i worked there.. then they came to know about my fake experience after 1 year... am confused...

what were they doing all 12 months?



And you come here in public forum, search 5 years old discusssion and make the public announcement of it 12 AM midnight? Sounds good. Time has gone that HR consultants exploited annonymous forums to spread rumors. If companies in India start firing people for fake experience, 70 to 80% people will lose jobs. These are just threatening tactics used by HR consultants.

The most fake people in Indian IT industry are HR and HR consultants. They call you from one number saying they are calling you from Company A and talk something then some other number call again and say calling from company B. These HR consultants are most fake, unethical and worst people who are major problem in indian industry. With the time people have grown up with their knowledge, not HR consultants.

Now if some recruitment company is using these threatening tactics to recruit you for company A becuase they think you will join company B , you can imagine what could be culture in company A. Don't you think these same threatening tactics will be used on a person to make him work 14/15 hours a day (also on weekends). Don't forget we are on the edge of second recession.
