OFF THE TICKER

Did I Say Harvard? I Meant Hartford

February 10, 1994|Associated Press

Job applicants are increasingly lying about the degrees they've earned, warns Edward Andler, whose company, Certified Reference Checking Co., does background checks.

One out of 12 job candidates lies about a college degree, contrasted with one in 15 three years ago, Andler says. Many liars get away with it, but others trip themselves up.

For the Record

University of Colorado--In the Feb. 10 "Off The Ticker," Associated Press erroneously reported that the University of Colorado has no Denver campus. The university has had a campus there since 1912.

Andler recalls one applicant who was caught claiming he went to the University of Colorado in Denver. The school is actually in Boulder.
