Do you remember when Myer hired Andrew Flanagan their new GM of Strategy and Business Development?
“Barely a week after trumpeting the appointment of Andrew Flanagan as general manager – strategy and business development, Myer has terminated his position after just one day in the job upon discovering that he was not the man he said he was.” http://www.afr.com/business/myer-fires-new-recruit-andrew-flanagan-over-fake-rsum-20140624-jgq7c#ixzz3qTeDNIZX
Above is an example of this happening at an executive level within a large listed business.
Having managed a specialist recruitment company in Sydney, Australia for nearly seven years now, I have encountered countless situations where the employee interviewed is simply not the employee that turns up to work on day one! Or perhaps they do but after day ten, twenty or ninety they morph into a different being.
