We all know honesty is the best policy so how come white
lies and fibs keep popping up on resumes? Lately, the papers are full of
stories about individuals ranging from Congressional candidates to medical
researchers to the Notre Dame football coach who have lied about (or distorted) their credentials. What gives?
In a tough job market, people may be tempted to embellish
their resumes to improve their chances of getting hired. But HR departments are

Check out the top most common fibs popping up on resumes.
Catching a job candidate in a resume lie or exaggeration is
a red-flag for hiring managers. Outright lies and even distortions can
sabotage not only your chances of getting the job to which you are currently
applying but other jobs down the road. If headhunters find out you're
untrustworthy, they won't come knocking on your door again. Professional
circles can be small; don't tarnish your reputation.
Honesty is always the best policy.

I am pleased to say my resume is 100% true. I have had people encourage me to embellish skills or experience, but I like being able to tell potential employers that it is all true - every word. As an Executive Assistant, the people I work with have to be able to trust me. It doesn't say a whole lot about my character if I can't even be honest on my resume.
