Grants and Contracts Details


Resume fraud is an under-researched, yet growing and insidious problem as organizations strive to select human capital. We develop a model of resume ftaud delineating two categories of predictors, with mediating and moderating factors relating those predictors to consequences relevant to organizations and job seekers. We propose two studies comprising recruiters, job seekers, longitudinal data and multiple job search episodes. Analyses will include moderated structural equation modeling. The research is expected to yield information of considerable value to managers and HR professionals.
