At my company, we whole-heartedly believe in the viability of working remotely. It offers huge benefits for both the employer and employee (and our planet). I hope more employers become open to the idea. Having knowledge (either a referral or experience) of the remote employee's skills and dependability is huge. You can waste a lot of time finding the right person and filtering out flakey developers. That is one of the services my company, Scalable Path, provides.

Right, the PHPClasses jobs system performs filtering of candidates, so no candidate applies if he does not have the necessary technical skills specified by the job poster.

Still, this does not mean the candidate is not lying just to be able to apply. Lying is pointless because that only wastes the employer time and his own time trying to apply to a job that he cannot perform because he really lacks skills.

The fact is that in the end the companies or recruiters will perform additional filtering to verify whether the candidate really has the necessary personal skills, like being responsible and trustworthy.
