Today’s corporate environment is pushing people towards unethical behaviour.

Most managers are too insecure to promote transparency in a team.

Actions like ‘boosting your CV’ or making claims that you cannot fulfill are now considered a necessary evil to climb up the corporate ladder.

Employees who have the gift of gab are more likely to get promoted than no-nonsense workers.

I am also searching for job in gulf. and this is my 2nd time that came here and i have never shown anything fake. I am not in favor of this. But if you don't show fake experience no one will hire you. because each company want a experienced employees. But can anyone tell me that how a fresh graduate will get a experience if no one will hire him/her. if companies want that no one should show a fake things. then I think so that they should equal opportunity to everyone. and at least should call for a short interview to check his/her abilities and knowledge and for their own long term success.
