Employers worry about the accuracy of resumes that flood across their desk with every job opening. They may be on to something: a recent Harris Interactive survey found that exaggerations and falsifications are every bit the problem employers fear them to be.
Being in this business, I often speak with HR professionals and learn about the unique challenges they face. It’s what I love about my job.

While she currently oversees six of the firm’s North American offices, she’s held a range of HR positions for various companies for almost 20 years.
