CAN WHAT YOU PUT IN YOUR RESUME COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU?

CAN WHAT YOU PUT IN YOUR RESUME COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU? Thu, 27 Sep 18
Most people would concur that it is a common occurrence or perception that people will have, at least some, incorrect facts, inconsistencies, exaggerations or untruths in amongst the true working and education history detailed in their resumes.

The drafting of a Testamentary Trust is one of our preferred estate planning methods, as it essentially doubles as a trust deed.
