La vérité toujours la vérité, rien que la vérité !

  S'il y a bien une question qui revient de manière récurrente, c'est "peut-on mentir en entretien ?". Autant certains sujets appellent à débat, ici aucun doute possible. La réponse est clairement NON !

Les raisons qui doivent vous retenir de mentir sont légions :

  • D’un point de vue moral, c’est tout simplement mal
  • Un mensonge est toujours bancal, vous ne serez jamais aussi convaincant que lorsque vous parlerez d’un sujet que vous maîtrisez réellement et qui vous plaît
  • C’est prendre le risque de se contredire au cours de l’entretien suite à un moment d’inattention
  • Entamer une relation ou un partenariat par un mensonge n’augure rien de bon pour l’avenir...

Si toutes ces raisons ne vous ont pas convaincus. Voici le cas de Jeffrey Chiang, jeune Américain d’origine chinoise qui s’est amusé à mentir en entretien dans des proportions hors du commun. Les mensonges se sont accumulés jusqu’au moment où quelqu’un s’est aperçu de la supercherie. En quelques heures, des centaines de milliers de pages mentionnaient le nom de Jeffrey Chiang, le blacklistant d’office dans des centaines d’entreprises.

I don't know if this guy has come up on your radar screens in terms of analyst recruits, but you need to be warned about him. I should have been tipped off by the fact that he ran a "5K marathon" on his resume.
I just figured something got lost in translation.

I interviewed him on campus, and while he was pretty weird/intense, he seemed like somebody who would crank and potentially make for a good analyst, so we waved him in for an office visit.

Things started going bad for him when I got a call from our HR department about him during our Superday. In making his travel arrangements with our travel agent, he had apparently made a big stink about needing to stay at the Four Seasons and blew up on the travel person. It was apparently bad enough that she went to the trouble to inform our HR department.

Our Superday reviews on him were pretty mixed, nonetheless. He had spent a summer at Gulfstar, so I did a bit of checking on him there, and it became clear that they were also very unimpressed with the way that he carried himself. So, we dinged him, but that is not where the story ends.

He had told one of the associates in our office that he was in the second round of interviews for MS's Palo Alto office. Well, our associate happened to mention this to his friend that works in the MS Palo Alto office and the associate at MS said that Jeff had had only had a phone interview but had indicated that he had an offer from BAML.
When the MS team asked him to send proof of his offer, he manufactured the email below and forwarded to the MS team.

We have notified UT of this joker's behavior, but needless to say, this guy shouldn't be able to get a job at McDonalds after a stunt like this.

This is what Jeffrey sent Morgan Stanley to prove he received an offer from your firm. Given you told me you dinged him, should I assume this is fake? If so, that's unbelievable and his school should be notified, he shouldn't get a job anywhere on Wall Street.
