THE INTEGRITY AND MORALS OF JOB APPLICANTS BY Elizabeth Reddix April 5,2010 INTRODUCTION Some studies have found that about 9 out of 10 applicants have lied in someway in order to land a job. The lies range from small exaggerations to blatant and completely fraudulent information such lying about a degree or perhaps about ones history of earnings. After tallying the results of a survey or a larger group of College students, one psychologist found that approximantely 90 out of 100 were willing to lie in order to land a job that they really wanted. One way to help screen out the deception from the is truth is to identify the most common deceptions. A nother is to try to understand why applicants feel the need to lie.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
