Hiring Managers Seeing More Lies on Resumes



Editor's Note: In a survey of 3,500 employees by HireRight, it was reported that 88% of those tested had lied on their resume compared with 70% five years ago. In this article in Fortune, Anne Fisher interviews Mary O’Loughlin, HireRight’s vice president of global customer experience, to find out why people are exaggerating on their resumes. 
Yet another reason for inventing whole chunks of a CV: Embarrassment about having lost a job to the recession. “Candidates think there is a huge stigma attached to unemployment,” notes O’Loughlin. “So they make up things to fill that gap in their work history.”
She notes that it is a far worse stigma to be dishonest than to lose a job! Click here to read more.

Weird Job Wednesday: The Most Valuable Player

Being a professional mascot might not be a "career move," but if you love sports, are enthusiastic,athletic, and want to be the "most valuable player," then this just might be your dream job.

The first Sports Mascot was the San Diego Chicken for the Padres. He earned $2 an hour in 1974!


Today, 95% of professional sports teams have a mascot. Salaries vary depending on the size of the team, but full-time mascots can earn a base salary between $25-55,00. Part-timers are paid per game, approximately $150. 

If you are interested in becoming a sports mascot, sign up with a professional talent agency, or go to the Interns Over 40 Job Search Page  and see what's listed!

Weird Job Wednesday - CHOCOLATE TASTER

Chocolate Taster! 


It's not quite like Lucy and Ethel in the Candy Factory, and the jobs are scarce, but what a DREAM JOB! According to most research, jobs usually go to younger women because they generally have a more keen sense of smell. 

Or, be a Chocolate Consultant. Some companies offer great part-time, entrepreneurial opportunities like Lindt Chocolate who advertise their home party Business Starter Kits for just $124. How bad can that be?

Older Workers-New Technology: YES THEY CAN

NEW Survey Debunks OLD Stereotype

For years, a stereotype has been fostered by the media, and now social media, that older people are just not that savvy when it comes to new technology. 

This false perception contributes to age discrimination that affects the older job seeker.

Two companies,  DROPBOX and Ipsos Mori, have surveyed more than 4,000 information workers in the U.S. and Europe about their use of technology in the workplace. 

The survey has revealed that workers aged 55+ are actually less stressed using technology in the workplace than their younger peers. The results also showed that older workers are actually BETTER at using multiple devices than their younger peers - only 13% of respondents aged 55+  reported having trouble working with multiple devices compared to 37% of 18-to-34-year olds.

If you are an older job seeker, don't PERPETUATE the stereotype of the obsolete older worker. Be sure to keep your skills AND resume up-to-date. Create your killer resume HERE.

If you haven't been in the job market lately, it might not be your job skills holding you back but your JOB HUNTING skills. CLICK HERE for a free assessment.
