Don't lie on your resume--duh

Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, says over a third of resumes have some big fat lie on them.

Big stuff—not just wording (domestic engineer for housewife etc). Big lies like being a war hero or even being in the military when you weren’t.

This stuff is checkable.

Which has made some cheaters more creative—they even try to hack university websites to make themselves “graduates.”

But what if the interviewer says, “Oh, I went there, too—did you have Dr Smith?” There may be no Dr Smith! Busted!

If you say you know how to do things you can’t do you will also be found out. And no one will be amused.

You can think about all this while being walked to your car.
