Do contractors come under pressure to falsify CV details?
Here’s word from one contractor this very day.
So, what would you have done?
A Contractor Speaks
Here’s a new one on me today.
I’ve just been approached via a PIMP with 6 months experience in recruitment telling me to falsify dates, experience and fill in their own cover sheets for Central Government roles.
So, no wonder the government is down the pan!
However, I ‘politely’ refused.
IT Contractor Comment
The name of both the agency and the recruiter have been supplied to us but we decided to leave them out as it is just this contractors word against the agents.
While we believe the contractor, legally he doesn’t want the hassle.
However, the contractor said “drop the name to be safe – the poor fool’s probably been told to do it via his manager.
“So, if anything it’s a reminder of the dog eat dog practices going on for agencies to secure a margin and a heads up for those who feel pressured to oblige.”
Would You Falsify Your CV for the agent?
So, what would you do?
Would you report the agent?
Or would you do as the recruiter suggests and falsify your CV to get the contract interview?
