Summary
MIS employment recruiters advise job candidates that falsifying past history is a poor job-seeking strategy. Job seekers misrepresent: current salary; unexplained absences; long periods of unemployment; and education. Recruiters can use the close-knit MIS community community to check on education and skills and are usually technically astute enough to grill candidates on their knowledge. Stated salaries are often verified after an employee is hired; misstatements can lead to quick firings. Moreover, salaries need not be based on past income if a candidate can show he is valuable; underpaid employees should be honest with prospective employers and explain why they are worth more. Layoffs should also be handled honestly; have the prospective employer contact the old employer to confirm that there were no personality or performance problems. Other recommendations to deal honestly with job history are presented.
