The only issue I have here is that he was allowed to "resign" over "inaccuracies" on his resume.
Just to clear up what an "inaccuracy" is.
Inaccuracy - "i was a very good player in high school."
Accurate - "I had the coordination of a newborn giraffe when I got my 2 minutes of PT a game and my main function was to make the other players on my team look better."
What the guy did was flat out lie. Stop.
So what the headline should have read was, "Martin fired for lying on his resume."
That's one of the great things about being a current UConn fan.
If you want to check Kevin Ollie's resume, you can have any one of numerous UConn NBA players attest to his having actually been in the NBA in real life, and not just on paper.
it's pretty bad when you have to make up Green Bay as your college basketball experience...
I can't believe nobody googled the guy and became suspicious. I can google obscure names of college players that played small school D1 ball 20 years ago and find game stories and box scores.
In the interests of setting the record straight, I, too, would like to correct several "inaccuracies" in my resume.
Apparently, I was not in France on D-Day. It turns out that we were actually on a beach vacation in Virginia with my German grandparents. I do remember my grandfather leaving the beach, but that might have been due to sunburn and not any military action on my part.
I was also never a member of the Space Program, nor did I ever pilot the space shuttle. That was a Jet Blue flight to Orlando. I did sit near the emergency exit, however. I was ready to serve if called upon.
And I never summited Mount Everest. I did know a girl named Meg Everett who was somewhat easier to summit, but I do apologize for any confusion there.
I am sure you can all forgive how these little misunderstandings can happen.
We accept your resignation from the Boneyard gratefully.
It's pretty crazy that this still happens as often as it does. Especially given the fact that this information is easier and easier to access now.
He should have went into politics, bad move.
You have to be crazy to lie on a resume today with all the information easily available. It is better to exaggerate during an interview because that could be viewed as subjective.
Why lie about something that can be easily checked? Not that I would lie about something you couldn't check... i mean of course I'm fluent in 5 languages i just don't feel the need to show off all the time. Oh and a pro resume tip: I always put down that I'm the most humble person ever; it let's everyone know i still keep it real.
