Too often CV means “Challenged Veracity”; resume résume checking

Are you sure your lawyers have the degrees and bar admissions they told you they have? InfoLink Screening Services, which has screened tens of thousands of job applicants, reports that 14 percent of the applicants lied about their education, according to the New York Times, March 12, 2006 at B2.

Lawyers, or perhaps more accurately, those who claim they are lawyers, have had more schooling, and thus more opportunities to embellish their CVs. Obviously, the time to check and challenge the veracity of degrees is during the pre-nuptials.
