The Lies on Your Resume Will Find You Out

I heard this on the Mr. Nice Guy podcast (http://mrniceguy.org/ - Show number 267) recently and saw it reported on CNet.com and elsewhere: David Edmondson resigned as CEO of Radio Shack recently amid questions about his resume.

At my company, someone was recently let go for the same reason.

Know this to be true: with more companies doing background checks, the lies on your resume will find you out. Therefore, make sure not to overstate your accomplishments and qualifications.

What do you think?

Unemployment rate declines in January

This appears to be good news on a macroeconomic scale, but I feel we should take with a grain of salt any numbers the Labor Department puts out. I don't think the unemployment numbers count those who have stopped looking for a job or who otherwise don't qualify for unemployment benefits.

I may be wrong. If so, please tell me.
