Have you ever lied on a resume?

The job market today is extremely competitive, and some people are taking drastic measures to ensure they lock in a job.

Resume

Many people are tweaking their resume by lying about certain job experiences or positions they might have had. This may not seem like the smartest idea, since we have technology that would make it easy to find out if the facts on someone’s resume are correct. But just how harmful is it to change minor details on your resume?

Some may argue that embellishing resumes is unfair to potential candidates that were just as qualified and were completely truthful. Others say that a little tweaking here and there won’t hurt, and sometimes they need the extra details to be noticed.
