78 percent of applicants lied to get a job within the past six months, according to Checkster, a reference-checking firm.

Among the most common lies are being a master at something the candidate barely uses like Excel or a foreign language, and earning a degree from a prestigious university when they just took a class online or didn't go there at all.
