Did You Purposely “Fudge” Your Resume?

Radio studioOn today’s Steve Hawkins Show, Alan and Steve discuss resume fraud, which is growing exponentially nationwide– and they talk about some of the excuses offered by those who misrepresent the facts on their resume.

How much can you “puff” your resume and still consider it accurate, and what are the repercussions of doing so?  Did you know that companies exist who will, for a fee, misrepresent time you were employed and will actually verify employment for you that never even occurred?

Think about this outcome.  If you misrepresent yourself, get hired, and start a new job, what can you do if you find yourself in that job and can’t successfully fill the role for which you were hired?  We won’t mince words about those who practice it.  Just the facts, ma’am.
