Is everything on your resume 100% honest? Or do you maybe have a white lie, like saying you were a VP when you were really a manager?
CareerBuilder.com asked employers if they'd ever caught someone lying on a resume and 58% said yes.
The seven most common lies people tell are:
1) Embellishing their skill set
2) Exaggerating their responsibilities
3) Fudging employment dates
4) Making up a job title
5) Posting a fraudulent academic degree
6) Including a company you didn't work for
7) Listing awards you didn't receive.
So the big question - is it worth the risk to lie?
93% of employers say if they see a lie, it automatically makes them reject the person. But 7% are willing to overlook a lie if they really like the person.
