To Lie or Not to Lie

Some job seekers may think its ok to lie just to get their foot in the door but those lies can and do come back to haunt you. The top items job seekers mostly lie about are their job responsibilities, skills and educational background. Companies are aware job seekers do this which is why they now have pre-employment test and the verification process has been extended to more than just verifying where you worked but what you actually did there. If you get past the interview stage you may think it’s notĀ a big deal to embellish these areas but it can cause a problem when you start the job and have no idea what you’re doing. If the company doesn’t fire you they have to spend extra time and money training you on the skills needed instead of just showing you their process. Time equals money so the company is losing money when they do this and now they don’t view you in a positive light which can make your working environment extremely hard.
