    Tourism is still booming as one of the largest industries around the world. It boosts the economic growth of a country while providing potential job creation for residents. For instance, by estimating to serve approximately about 15.6 million foreign tourists and about 80 million domestic travelers, Vietnam generate receives 620 trillion VND (26.66 billion USD) in tourism and a rise of more than 25 thousand employees per years.

    Should we lie in the interview? (December 9, 2018)

    (09:23:33 AM 07/12/2018)

    According to award-winning social psychologist Ron Friedman, 81% of people lie during their job interviews. This staggering statistic implies that job interviews might soon become a thing of the past. Friedman suggests that interviews create a situation in which applicants are dishonest because they think lying might be the only route to a job offer.
       We’re usually told that lying is bad. It’s not hard to see why. Lying is a form of deception that fills the world with distrust, is morally wrong, and becomes a chore on the liar’s mind. On the other hand, lying is human nature and even necessary at certain times. Let’s not kid ourselves. Always telling the truth isn’t appropriate in society. After all, white lies exist for a reason. They can help us move past awkward situations without causing any real harm to anybody else. One example that comes to mind is a job interview. To be clear, we’re not suggesting you lie to a potential employer so you get a job offer.
       Do you ever find yourself suspicious that an applicant is lying during a job interview, but you’re not sure how to uncover the truth without resorting to over-the-top interrogation techniques? The science of textual analysis tells us that truth-tellers actually speak differently than truth-stretchers. A candidate who lacks any situational experience working on teams but wants to lie about it, will have to construct a story, and the cognitive strain of this often reveals itself in a lack of complexity, where explanations about events (that didn’t happen) sound unrealistically straightforward or vague. Sometimes telling the whole truth about yourself in a job interview may mean losing a position to a better-qualified candidate. But the alternative - lying about your degree, qualifications, or experience for short-term gain - inevitably will come back to haunt you, may lead to serious repercussions when the truth eventually comes out.
     

    QUESTION TO DISCUSS:
    1. Have you ever told lies in job interview? Can you share your experiences.
    2. What do you often tell lies in job interview and Why do you need to tell lies about that “thing”?
    3. Pros and cons of telling lies in job interview? Do you think that it’s good or bad when telling lie in job interview?
    4. How to harmonize between “ being frank “ and “ cheating”?
