As interviewing job candidates switched from in-person to video during the pandemic, some candidates have been paying shills to stand in for them. Others have shelled out money to be fed answers to interviewers’ questions. Neville and Shel dive into one case of a job candidate who had someone else interview on his behalf and discuss ways to detect this unique and baffling new fraud.
The next monthly, long-form episode of FIR will drop on Monday, February 14, 2022.
We are hosting a Communicators Zoom Chat each Thursday at 1 p.m. ET. For credentials needed to participate, contact Shel or Neville directly or request the credentials in our Facebook group or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
