Job Hunting and CV's

  1. Just wondered do you tell a few lies to beef up your CV a bit so that you come across as a bit more impressive to the potential employers? :confused: :facepalm: :writing:
     
  2. There's a difference between making previous job roles appear to be more impressive than they actually were, and outright lying. Lies will always come back to haunt you.

  3. Agreed. Don't put anything on your CV that you can't back up :banhappy:
     
  4. I tailor it for whatever job I'm applying for but if you have the skills and experience they're looking for you don't need to invent things.
     
  5. No lies and I find it tricky to big up things that I have done.

    Same as in appraisals and 1-1's, my manager will ask me what I'm doing and she has to bring up stuff that I just see as my job, nothing special.
