When it comes to hustling, many people follow the principle of ‘Fake It Till You Make It’….until you get caught. But why choose the immoral and dishonest path?
Many candidates tend to fake their education, identity and other records to secure high-paying jobs and roles. Something as simple as mental health can be faked by putting on an over-confident persona; after all, why would an organisation hesitate in hiring someone that is confident in his/her claims and skills?
However, the glitch arrives when it comes to performing technical & knowledge-specific tasks. You cannot bluff all the way into a technical, scientific or mathematical role. For example, if a pharmaceutical company is hiring candidates to work in a lab, the candidates cannot be hired solely on the basis of a confident personality. They are required to have verifiable technical knowledge and the correct educational backing. Forging documents, speedy reading and cheating our way through processes can prove to be costly to the organisation that has hired us based on these fake details; so why choose to be unethical?
At Verifacts, we have more or less found that irregularities in profiles after screening are in making pompous claims about experience and knowledge as well as faked documents, forged certificates and misused higher education documentation. A specific skillset is required for specific job roles; we must not force our way into a job that another may be genuinely better qualified for!
To avoid fraudulent applications and ensure of correct hiring procedures that involve thorough background checks and identity verifications of all candidates. Prevention, after all, is always better than punishment!
