Case Study 1
During a search, we determined that the CEO of a company had not graduated from the graduate program in the 1970s that he claimed. After in-depth research, we found that he had not attended that school and merely stated the graduate program to “boost” his resume. Verifying education may not seem important to you or the deal; however, if individuals claim to have attended or graduated from an institution, it should be confirmed. Why? Past employment and education are very easy to “fudge” and rarely verified. If someone is lying about a degree, what else are they “fudging”? The number one thing people lie about is their education degree. This is an excellent way of determining someone’s character.
