How much does it matter than Yahoo's CEO had an inaccurate resume?
zeeman 2 years ago
Scott Thompson didn't exactly have the educational background that was listed on his resume. Oops. I have gotten resumes from people that went to the same college I graduated from, and on two separate occasions an applicant claimed to have a degree that I know my alma matter doesn't offer and never has. Again, oops. Does Thompson's inaccurate bio reflect a common practice in tech? I'm sure there were inaccuracies in other resumes I've received that I didn't catch, but I'm telling you if I hired someone and found out later that they had falsified their qualifications, I would be irate. Very irate. But what do you do when it is the CEO? Does yahoo let it slide, or does the board have to get rid of Thompson?
