Thames Water's graduate recruitment manager reportedly slates an applicant for saying "I was really keen to work for BP but I didn't get through so I applied to you" and another who said his girlfriend lived in Reading so he'd like to be based there (News, THES, December 13) as displaying a lack of commitment. Are we to infer that recruiters place a lower value on honesty than an ability to fake enthusiasm and commitment?
