Ask Your Question
I am not speaking about lying on your resume about a job you never had. I was talking more about embellishing on the resume?
I once fabricated a reasonable job at a made up company. Got my friend to be my old manager for my reference. It got me a decent job but after 6 months they found out and fired me.
I only did it because I was in a very tight spot and had run out of options. If you have a roof over your head and food on your table then don't do this. It fucked me over after I got fired because in my next job search I then couldn't use the same lie AND on top of that I had to tell another lie to cover up why I got fired. It gets out of control. I managed to get another job in the end but it was fucking stressful and damaged my reputation.
Lying is bad, mmkay. I wouldn't lie.
It's not lying...think of it as showcasing your creative skills.
i was once a dinin receptacle sanitation and sterilization technician
before that i was a petrochemical distribution engineer
I was a libation curator & allocator at my neighborhood legal beverage dispensary.
*medicinal alcohol dispensary
Yeah it's ok.
Of course, everyone does it when they're young, or if you have gaps in employment. Give friends' numbers as your former "bosses" and coach them on what to say lol.
Are you kidding? People "embellish" all the damn time on resumes, job interviews, applications, etc.
I mean maybe don't blatantly lie but a little "fibbing" is common.
Just remember - no one gets ahead by being completely honest
not if you are sure you can get away with it..
It's probably not uncommon to lie on a résumé, but it's not normal either.
Doesn't everybody do that? Even in the sense of leaving out jobs you were dismissed from?
