The Temptations of Fixing Resumes

An article has appeared recently suggesting that the in this bad economy there has been a tendency to distort facts on your resume. Although it is not new that people have been distorting facts like their degrees, experience and skills on their resume but this economy has made the trend even more perverse. I don’t know what to say, although I have been unemployed for a few months but it is hard for me to put on my resume what I have not accomplished. I can understand that desperate people who have been out of work for a long time may be desperate enough to try to cheat on their resume but ultimately you get caught no matter what.

It is now so easy to caught people cheating on their resumes like their degrees and their experience, but only the skills section is hard enough to find, but after a few weeks on the job you can figure out if the person knows the skills he has written on this resume or not.It is thus best not to distort your resume because ultimately you will get caught and the news will spread around that you are a cheater and a liar and it will linger on long after you have corrected any lies on your resume.
