Hiring Decision made by using research methodology?

Hiring decisions are made without much thought to several aspects pertaining to the candidate. For instance, Sam, whose resumé did not mention anything at all about attempting to murder his wife and spending 6 years in prison, was hired for a medical director position in one of the largest medical device companies. A simple Googling would have turned up one of the 24 articles in this case, com- ments Fortune magazine. Thirty percent of resumés contain misstatements of facts, according to industry experts. The most common resumé fudge is to expand the dates of employment. When people are fired, it does not feature in the resumé. Dis- covering crimes committed under an alias and getting information from overseas are practically impossible.
