Many people embellish the truth a little on their resume. Most common is when candidates “clump” all of the jobs at a single company under their current and, probably, highest position.
A reputable resume writer will warn his or her clients not to do this. However, it happens all the time.
If you’re considering exaggerating on your resume. Don’t.
Getting caught in a little white lie will likely put you out of the running.
The majority of employers said that discovering a lie on a candidate’s resume might derail his or her chances of being hired according to survey conducted by CareerBuilder.
