#WhiteLiesOnMyResume: The Implications

It’s a competitive market, and it can be tempting to embellish on some accomplishments or your experience for you to feel that you have the edge needed to make it to the interview process. That is intentionally misleading your future employer and took careful thought. But what you may not think about too closely is a quick tweet or post about what you lied about. The disturbing reality is that people are actually participating, but what’s more troubling is that people lied in the first place.

Your resume is probably the first thing a potential employer will see before interviewing you, it’s essential to print it in a way that is crisp and professional.
