Can a recruiter blacklist you?
Recruiters may or may not keep an actual blacklist for job candidates. The list can be in the form of an internal document, or red flag on a candidate’s profile. Other times, recruiters may simply make a mental note of a candidate they wish to never do business with again. Recruiters don’t live and work in a bubble.
Can I lie about how much I make on a job application?
Muse Career Coach, Theresa Merrill, advises people to be honest about their current or past salary. Misrepresenting anything about your work history in an interview or on an application is “unethical,” and therefore unadvisable.
Do recruiters lie about salary range?
Recruiters and hiring managers often refuse to divulge the salary range up front. Candidates may be told the salary range is not set, which is usually a lie, or they may be redirected when this question comes up, which may not be a lie so much as an omission of information.
