Avoid Being Catfished


Hiring is tough. There are so few candidates, and you need someone FAST. When dentists get desperate, they’ll look at a resume and think, “Yep, that’s good enough.” Watch out—you might be getting catfished! Candidates hack the hiring process all the time. They fill their resumes with half-truths and flat-out lies. They put up a good front during interviews. And their only references are drinking buddies from college!

People will say and do anything to get hired. You have to make sure people are who they say they are. Yes, the hiring process will take longer. You’re going to find a lot of catfish. Trust me, it’s worth finding the right person. Don’t hire someone just because you need to fill a position!

So, how do you weed out the catfish? Watch this quick video to find out. And don’t forget to share this hilarious video about catfishing with your team.

Don’t let those catfish fool you!
