When it comes to hunting for jobs, the first thing that strikes our mind is drafting an outstanding resume. This document is responsible for delivering a positive first impression about you to prospective employers. So, it’s extremely important to project the most authentic version of yourself on your resume. So fabricating and lying in the hopes of impressing recruiters can get you in trouble .
According to experts, most employers spend less than five minutes reviewing a resume. However, their expertise gives them the capability to quickly catch a lie or two within those few minutes. Sometimes the lies get caught during in-person interviews. And not to forget, almost every company conducts a background check on each candidate before hiring them. So, it doesn’t matter how big or small the lie is, it won’t go unnoticed by the scrutinising eyes of the recruiters.
