More than 75% of applicants lied to get a job within the past six months. That’s according to Checkster, which is a reference-checking firm.

Among the most common lies, are claiming to be a master of skills, inflating job titles of past work experience, and listing a degree from a prestigious university after just taking a class online, or not even going there at all.
