Recently, I turned down an applicant for lying during his interview. He said he had a college degree but my reference checking revealed that he did not actually have one. I told him why he was not being selected and he begged for a chance to explain, so I gave it to him. He told me that he did not intend to mislead me. He explained that he had taken lots of courses over the years after dropping out of his degree program and that he has earned enough credits to have a degree. While I kind of admire his persistence, I still feel like he can’t be trusted. He is asking for a second chance. I am not inclined to give it to him but am wondering what Evil Skippy would have to say about it.
