We've been in the IT staffing industry for over 20 years now and if there's one thing we can be certain of, it's that most IT contractors are ethical and uphold high standards of honesty. An area we've seen some professionals slip, it's when trying to sell themselves for a job where they don't have the complete experience.
Whether or not we received honest answers is uncertain, but last month's contractor quick poll asked independent contractors if they ever lied on their resume, or even stretched the truth a bit. The results are below and very promising for our industry. While a few admit that they may have stretched the truth a bit, nobody responded that they have completely made up experience.
