Guest: Robert Cardy, Ph.D., Professor of Management, Chair of the Department of Management at the University of Texas at San Antonio  The whole point of a resume is to sell yourself, put your best foot forward, and present your skills in the most impressive way possible. And so there’s a temptation to fudge a bit. Maybe just overstate your skills. In some cases – an increasing number, in fact – people outright lie on their resumes. That’s the conclusion of Robert Cardy, a Professor of Management at the University of Texas at San Antonio. He’s been looking at why people falsify their information on resumes and what happens when the lies are found out. Professor Cardy joins me now.
