I was recently taking professional advice from few of my seniors about job prospects, self development etc.. I also interacted from few of my juniors who are college pass outs or with less than one year experience looking for a change.. I came to know that many people are putting fake experience on Their CVs in order to boost their job prospects and improve position in job market and get more interview calls and better chance of being selected in good role with good salary.. Looks like they pay some amount of money to agencies who do this...the agency provide fake experience certificate, pay slip and provide back ground verification to any company HR who calls..in return for hefty amount of money.. I'm in India, so asking from Indian perspective I don't know how this works in abroad countries.. I know this is a bad idea and wrong, I will not do it.. But, won't companies come to know when they do a detailed background verification? Are there any loopholes that these agencies utilise to provide fake exp . And get away with it? If company finds out, will they fire the employee or retain them if performance is good? I heard so many people in early twenties coolly saying that they are making some arrangement to get experience certificate that'll help them get good package in top MNC.. Then what about those with genuine experience and genuine skills and knowledge who ate struggling to get interview calls and job?is nt there any value for them? But is it really that easy to fake so many documents, like pay slip, experience certificate, form16, IT returns, bank statements, relieving certificate, PF statements etc that prove that's person has been part of an organisation for certain a mount of time and earned certain salary every month? Kindly share your experience and knowledge regarding fake experience ... I don't want to go for this..then reason for asking is.. One of my cousin who worked in good company earlier had career gap due to personal reason..she wants to fill that gap with fake experience certificate..she is very young and influenced by friends...how can I discourage her from doing this..
