— A Survey of 1,003 People Shows Millennials Lie on Resumes 5 Times More Often Than Baby Boomers Gen Z lies seven times more often. – Minda Zetlin
https://www.inc.com/minda-zetlin/millennials-gen-z-lie-on-resumes-more-than-baby-boomers.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But apparently, the younger you are, the likelier you are to be untruthful, at least when applying for a job. Eleven percent of Millennials said they had lied on their résumés, and 14 percent of Gen Z respondents said they’d done it. Only 2 percent of Baby Boomers said they’d ever lied on a résumé. And they don’t feel bad about it. While 54 percent of men and 42 percent of women who lied in all age groups felt guilty about doing so, only 27 percent of Millennials did. The difference may be changing attitudes about employment and employers.)

ASSOCIATION FOR TALENT DEVELOPMENT
— Don’t Make Risky Assumptions – Ken O’Quinn (DIERSEN: What assumptions do you make about those who read what you write? The only legitimate reason to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails is to get information to help defend and advance conservative Republican principles. Nevertheless, I have always been fully aware that some read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to get information to help them dismiss, discredit, belittle, badmouth, intimidate, insult, demonize, denigrate, and/or condemn me. I should write a book those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to get information to help them dismiss, discredit, belittle, badmouth, intimidate, insult, demonize, denigrate, and/or condemn me.)

STANDARD MEDIA
— Do you need a higher degree or is work experience sufficient? – Nancy Nzalambi (DIERSEN: According to this article, “A degree earned 20 years ago may be useless now.” Of course, my critics/opponents stress that all my education, paid work experience, professional certifications, and professional license are at least 21 years old.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Employers are lured by your work experience, but you must have the relevant experience to appeal to them more. Work experience should highly relate with the job that you are looking for. Your experience has to show some aspect of growth. You are more marketable when there are quantifiable results from the time and effort you put into work.)

BROOKLYN PAPER
— There is a biblical saying. “Do unto others as you would have done unto you.” – STEPHANIE THOMPSON (DIERSEN: How do people treat you? One can assume that people treat you like they want you to treat them. I should write a book about how people in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois have treated me since I moved to Wheaton in 1978. I would focus on those who read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, but who a) fail/refuse to share relevant information with me and/or b) fail/refuse to return my phone calls. I would focus on those who dismiss me, discredit me, belittle me, badmouth me, intimidate me, insult me, demonize me, denigrate me, and/or condemn me. I would focus on those who ascribe evil motive and/or bad judgment to everything that I do or that I do not do. I would focus on those who blame me for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who blame me for all the losses that Republicans have suffered in Illinois since 2000. I would focus on those who forced me to sue them. I would focus on those who focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate. I would focus on those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who do not talk and/or act like they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and/or Illinois, their operatives, and their dupes.)
