Don't Lie on Your Resume, Duh!

LyingI continue to be gobsmacked that people need to be reminded not to lie on their resumes.

I could go through each of the ten lies mentioned in the article but it all seems so obvious that I will simply say “Do not lie on your resume”. If damaging your reputation and demonstrating a lack of integrity are not valid enough reasons, try this: you will get caught!

We live in an age where everything is “Googleable”. In many ways, we are all public people and have an online profile that we hopefully control. Information about where you went to school, where you worked, and for how long is so easy to obtain it is unreal.

My advice, use your time to build important skills and experience instead of crafting elaborate lies.
