In the comments section of our job-market discussion thread, Dr. X writes [note: comment edited to preserve anonymity]:
There should be a discussion of the types of misleading information to avoid putting on one's CV.
An example that everyone should know by now to be deceitful: listing something under review as a "publication". JUST. STOP.
A more underhanded example: claiming that PhilPeople metrics declares you as being, say, "top [X] for citations (past five years) for [Y]", without also noting the extremely narrow criterion for entry into PhilPeople's data pool...
Good query. I wasn't aware of the PhilPeople issue, but I hear about similar things every job season. What other kinds of misleading things should candidates take care to avoid?
