Se Habla Espanol?
Interviewing is hard and we understand. The latest and greatest is lying about Multi Linguistic Skills.
Position: Quality Director
Location: Southern, US
Candidate claims fluency in Spanish, English and Portuguese
FYI: Fluency in Portuguese does NOT magically make you fluent in Spanish…
Candidate tries to convince Hiring Manager that Portuguese is the same as Spanish, but didn’t realize the Hiring Manager was 100% fluent in Spanish.
Lesson: Lying about skills, experience, education or lying in general is not a good policy.
