I don’t want to give away too much detail but I’m curious if anyone else in the mortgage business is seing applicants with fake resumes? My company had had two so far this year. Absolutely sterling resume, references answered and checked out (slightly dubious imo but taking HRs word for it), and then when it came time for the actual skills interview…I’m 100% certain they didn’t know what a mortgage even was. We had a processing applicant who claimed 5 years experience and a senior title who didn’t know that you use gross income rather than the net, among other issues.
I’m assuming the labor market and rapid increase is wage offerings have attracted people willing to take a stab at something so bold, I’m just curious if it’s a one off or if anyone else is seeing similar issues. Its not the type of job you can expect to fake until you make it. We had another one this week who took their zoom interview actively driving, and was 10 minutes late to boot. It’s just surreal
