Be Honest About Your Qualifications – Jordan Rayboy Quoted in Chicago Tribune Story.

Moral and ethical concerns aside, workplace experts agree that lying on a resume or cover letter is always a bad idea, especially because it's so easy for employers to uncover the truth.

By Jim Shaki on 05 September 2011 On this episode of Jordan Rayboy’s Open Road, I get to be in the drivers seat asking the questions to… you guessed it, Jordan himself.

And to companies looking to rebuild, being steadily employed suggests you're stable and loyal, and therefore likelier to provide a return on investment should you be hired. For employees who held onto jobs during corporate downsizing, shouldering more work without complaint became business as usual.
