A new survey carried out by Cpl has found jobseekers lie all the time on their CVs, and mostly on things it would be easy to verify. Job applicants systematically lie about their qualifications (79%), position titles (64%), responsibilities (52%) and references (23%), with only fifty percent of employers bother to check references.

Sixty percent of women jobseekers feel that they are paid less than men, but only 1/3 of men believe they get paid more.

Fifty three percent of women think men are treated more favourable in work, while seventy percent of men believe that both genders are treated equally.

Only one percent of female respondents believe that women are treated more favourable than men.
