Yahoo has been in the midst of a lot of convoluted problems lately. At one side, its investors are demanding to have the CEO replaced over a critical mistake in his CV, one that says he is a computer science bachelor even when he is not. At the other, the response given by the CEO isn’t being accepted and further criticism is heaped over it.


When first confronted with this glaring anomaly in his CV, Yahoo’s CEO, Scott Thompson, resorted that the mistake has been unintentional and the headhunting firm, who prepared his bio, was to be blamed for it. The headhunting firm happens to be Heidrick & Struggles.

Naturally, the firm was quick to respond to this, opposing what Thompson had said and saying that it wasn’t true. According to the CEO of Heidrick & Struggles, Kevin Kelly, “if recent media reports are accurate, the CEO of Yahoo has made potentially damaging allegations about our firm that are simply not true and cannot be allowed to stand in the public record. The media articles in question have indicated that the Yahoo CEO told members of his senior staff that, many years ago, a junior member of our firm invented an academic credential for him in the course of preparing standard profile materials. Based on information in our possession, this allegation is verifiably not true and we have notified Yahoo to that effect.”

Thompson is of the view that the mistake in his bio has been utterly intentional and he has no role to play in it. Rather, the mistake was the resolt of a junior staffer at one of his earlier jobs. Also, Thompson does have a point when he says that he never told Yahoo directly that he had a degree in computer science.
