Don’t Hire a Liar

When asked why he left his previous employment, the candidate gave a plausible reason. When asked the same question at a subsequent interview, however, he gave a different answer. When challenged to explain the differences, the candidate stumbled around, saying that he didn’t think it was important, but it became apparent he had gotten caught in a lie.

Asking the same question twice can often uncover a candidate who is being less than truthful. Liars sometimes have problems with consistency of answers because they are often made up at the spur of the moment, whereas the truth is always the truth.

People who lie before they’re hired will lie after they’re hired. If they lie to get a job, they’ll lie to keep one, and they’ll lie to a prospect to get a sale.

Is this the kind of person you want dealing with your customers?
