What Me? Lie On My Resume? Who Will Know?


Visitors: 411

The temptation to lie on a resume is great! How can it hurt if I stretch the truth a bit? Employers see lots of resumes. How are they going to know who lies and who doesn't?

Whoa! Let's stop a minute and reflect on what lies can REALLY do on a resume.

1. Lying and stretching the truth may come out anyway. You, job seeker, might exaggerate to the wrong people and get caught LYING!

2. Are you so unsure of yourself that you have to LIE to get a job? Poor you!

3. MANY, if not all employers who find out the truth behind a lie will dismiss you on the spot.

4. Why lie? If your accomplishments and skills seem below par, better to tell that to an interviewer than to be seen as a LIAR!

Finally, a lie makes you feel guilty, Ethically, you, job seeker, need all of the positive parts of yourself to get a new job. Omit lies to yourself and get onto finding a good job without falsifying anything.

Lying on a resume deserves the file 13 we all know about. Keep your head up high and know yourself as a truth teller, not the liar who falls from grace eventually, especially on a job. Your mom was right, don't LIE!
