    Belfast Telegraph ^ | 03 July 2014
    Fraud prevention officers have sent a new guide to universities warning students they could face jail for telling “white lies” on their CVs to make them more impressive. Entitled Don’t Finish Your Career Before It Starts, the guide warns that embellishments like inflating grades and inventing extra-curricular activities can be classed as “fraud by false representation” and carry a maximum 10-year jail sentence. It says that cases referred to the fraud prevention service CIFAS stay on file for six years, so applicants might also be flagged up if they attempt to apply for other jobs. …

    Hiring managers are less picky than they used to be, but misspellings and typos can still count against you. So can “creative” job titles. It was bound to happen, now that millions of us are merrily texting and tweeting away. Job interviewers have become more tolerant of spelling mistakes and other errors on resumes than they used to be. Consider: Only about 17% of hiring managers say they would toss a resume in the circular file if it had a single snafu in it, according to a new poll from staffing firm Accountemps. That’s a sharp drop from 40% who...

    Michelle Obama’s annual question-and-answer session with the children of Executive Office employees took a serious turn Thursday when a 10-year-old girl in the front row told the first lady that her dad had been out of work for three years. Then the girl popped up to hand the first lady his resume. The first lady seemed a little taken aback but then explained to the other children, who might not have heard the girl’s comment, that the matter was “a little private, but she’s doing something for her dad.” Mrs. Obama promised to deal with the matter later. When the...

    A very remarkable woman I know recently lost her job at a hospital, discriminated against because she was NOT a Muslim. Ironically, she became a refugee in America to escape Islamicist oppression; she was a Philippino trapped into servitude who came to work for an astonishingly high-ranking Muslim who took her to America... where she fled. Now she wants help on a resume, where she has listed her former employee. I'm afraid that without knowing her and her story, her claims of who she has worked for sound a little delusional.

    Many job seekers have long suspected their online employment applications disappear into a black hole, never to be seen again. Their fears may not be far off the mark, as more companies rely on technology to winnow out less-qualified candidates. Recruiters and hiring managers are overwhelmed by the volume of résumés pouring in, thanks to the weak job market and new tools that let applicants apply for a job with as little as one mouse click. The professional networking website LinkedIn recently introduced an "apply now" button on its job postings that sends the data in a job seeker's profile...

Over the next few years you are asking to be paid more than the cost of a Ferrari and the desk space, computer kit and coffee you use over that time means you cost at least twice what you earn. Does Ferrari say it makes “reelly good carrrs”? No, it bloody doesn’t. So why do you spell the name of your degree subject wrong? Why do you use slightly different fonts...

A college football and baseball star who held a collegiate punting record. A professional football player with the Chicago Fire of the now-defunct World Football League who had also been a league-leading quarterback in the Continental Football League. But a Sun-Times examination found Mahmoud was never drafted by the Reds and didn't play for either football league. Central State University in Ohio, from which Mahmoud graduated, could not confirm his claimed record.

No mention of John McCain, Rudy Giuliani or Mike Huckabee, Republican presidential rivals whose campaign credentials lean heavily on government service. The point is unmistakable, all the same. The ad is the most visible element of Romney’s strategy for the final week of the Florida primary. After a series of...

The South's Unification Ministry said delegates would meet in the North Korean border city of Kaesong on Thursday to discuss when to open new talks. North Korea's state-run news agency said Pyongyang agreed to the proposal for renewed contact between the two...

    BEIJING - Talks on North Korea's nuclear programs resumed on a positive note Thursday, with the Chinese hosts distributing a draft agreement and the North agreeing in principle to initial steps to disarm. Envoys from six nations are trying to agree on steps to implement a September 2005 deal in which North Korea pledged to disarm in exchange for aid and security guarantees. The 2005 deal — the only one to emerge since negotiations began in 2003 — was a broad statement of principles that did not outline any concrete steps for dismantling North Korea's nuclear program. The main U.S....

    A young Yale overachiever just wanted a job on Wall Street - but his overblown video resume is triggering an Internet firestorm rivaling Paris Hilton's sex video. Aleskey Vayner, a senior history major, envisioned himself as a perfect candidate for Wall Street power, boasting of an "insatiable appetite for success" and a credo to always "ignore losers." Instead, he unleashed a torrent of outrage and jokes on the 'Net, where his slick video resume was derided as egotistical bunk loaded with fakery, such as a karate chop through seven red bricks and a scene supposedly portraying him bench-pressing 495 pounds.

"The first thing that job seekers have to get over is that it's not personal," says Gerry Crispin, a recruiting technology expert. "The chance when you apply for a job that someone actually sees your resume is...

    WASHINGTON, July 31, 2006 – A tradition that lasted a half century is being renewed on the shores of Lake Michigan. In the aftermath of World War II, Irv “Kup” Kupcinet, a columnist for the Chicago Sun Times, wanted to reach out to servicemembers to show his gratitude for their service to the country. Kupcinet would take patients from veterans hospitals to Lake Michigan for a day of food and fun, said Eric Schuller, senior policy advisor to Illinois Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn. From 1945 to 1995, Kupcinet offered Purple Heart recipients the opportunity to spend a day on a...

    For the past few days, I’ve been out of the political news-blogosphere loop, so I don’t know what’s going on. Let’s do something different: CONFESS! I suspect that most people, at one time or another, have lied on their resumes. I’ll tell you about one of my resume lies. When I first arrived in the nation’s capital back in 1998, I was using a resume with a big fat whopper on it. At that point I wasn’t using a computer regularly and didn’t own one. I’d prepared papers in some prehistoric form of MS Word while in school, but...

    NAVAL STATION GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba (Army News Service, Feb. 28, 2006) – With commissions slated to resume March 1 for four detainees at Guantanamo Bay, and about 16 international media outlets expected to report on the proceedings along with several other organizations that will observe the hearings, officials said security will be nothing short of tight. The Joint Task Force-Guantanamo leadership and security teams kept the commissions running smoothly in January. “One of the toughest challenges we had was that the security element had no idea of what ‘right’ looked like,” said Army Capt. David Murphy, officer in charge of...
