Lying on your resume – How big of a deal is this?

Hi all!  I recently read a great article from Sam Becker that talks about the Hloom project.  Essentially, the Hloom project surveyed 2,000 hiring managers and employees about lying on your resume and how serious of a problem it is.  The response?  It’s a big deal!  Below are the links to both of them:

Hloom Project: Resume Lies

This is something that I’ve written extensively about in the past.  At the end of the day I’ve found two things to be true:

1.  Lies are almost always found out at some point in the process.

2.  Lies will stop you from getting the job or get you fired.

For more of my thoughts on lying in the interview process have a look at some of my other posts:
