The only lie/half truth I have on my resume is that I am conversational in my indigenous language... I can understand and read it but my speaking is very mediocre. But I put it on my resume anyway to look fancy. Sue me

I didn't know

When i was younger i would embellish like proficient in word, excel stuff like that and then i extended the time frame for one job i worked at for 10 mths but put a year. I really dont have to do that now because my exp, but i do need to update my resume for an external job. My current resume is basically 1 old job and all the 4 positions i had internally with my current job which i been at for 11yrs

We just fired a guy over that. He said he knew SQL and he used it all the time for his prior department. Turns out in his old department  the scripts were already written and all he did was just plug in what was needed for his team. He couldn't write a simple join statement so he had to go.



We also had another person lie about their degree in an interview but when we did background no school came up. DO NOT LIE ABOUT GOING TO COLLEGE because this can be pulled.
