Do you guys lie on your resume? I like to say that i graduated highschool but the reality is i had a break down right before we graduated and dropped out. Im doing fine, i can get jobs. But I cant be the only one right? R-Right?
Yeah, you're fine. I'm doing the same thing but with college, OP.
>i graduated high school, am unemployed, and never been in management, but this is how I feel good about my shitty situation
I never do, but for reference, when I got my last job they cross-checked absolutely everything - prior employment history - down to the specific MONTH I noted as starting/leaving which had me worried because I took a haphazard guess at those. They also required all degrees scanned and sent to them for verification.
And that was for $11.50 p/h at Chase Bank
Well, my dad spent 12.5 years in prison (half of a "life sentence") for 1st degree murder. He met my mom while on work release, and then went on parole.
If you meant details about the murder, it's not extremely exciting. It was a home robbery that went wrong - the homeowner had a gun and shot first.
>no work experience until last year, so used an out of business local store from a different state and an out of country shop with friends acting as cover
>applying for new job now
>place I interviewed with today wants to do a backround check
Should I be too worried since it's just a bootleg Sam's Club and not anything too important. They outright said they weren't gonna bother calling the foreign place, so wondering if they're gonna cheap out on backround check too.
My dad is a good man who had a tough childhood and made some bad decisions. His dad tried to kill him many times. That's how he grew up. He's caused no problems for the 30 years he's been out of prison, and raised a successful son that runs a $200M/year business.
You're a piece of shit that should be sodomized.
There is fudging your resume and there is lying on your resume.
Everyone does the former.
"Volunteered with Habitat for Humanity 2008-2015" When you went there twice because your mom made you.
Graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard with a Masters in Physics
The first one no one gives a fuck about. The second one will lead to your termination if you somehow made it past the hiring phase.
Shit people lie about: months worked (everyone rounds up or just doesn't fucking remember), references (people who don't have enough/good ones get their friends to pose as a reference), job duties (everyone lists the shit they think the HR rep wants to hear, and includes some task that they did once or rarely because it makes it sound like they were doing stuff beyond the scope of their job).
Now for reference, I used to work in a school district and I lied on my resume, no one looked into it. Now I work at a nuclear power plant and they looked into every aspect of my life to make sure I wasn't a fucking terrorist.
In short OP, feel free to lie. Who gives a fuck? If you get found out before the interview process, you just won't get the job. If you get found out after you're hired, you'll get fired or reprimanded. It's not like they don't still have to pay you.
>Kills people for small sums of money
Can you say "Daddy issues?"
Not saying your dad is the devil. Unfortunately bad circumstances can lead to awful stuff. But if you want to defend him, it would probably be better to say something about what he is currently doing to repent for his sins with respect to the victims family. Because from their perspective they lost a beloved family member because of some greedy nigger who probably wanted to get high, and that will stick with them for a lot longer than 12.5 years.
Graduating from high school is more or less graduating from nothing. A job requiring high school level means they need someone that can talk properly and not behave like trash, they don't expect any kind of specific knowledge and everything they want to know about they will find out just by the way you hold yourself during the interview. Go for it, worst case scenario, you won't get the job.
Termination from a job he wouldn't have had in the first place.
Anyway, Mcdonalds isn't going to waste time checking up on that kind of thing. Graduating high school and surviving to age 18 are basically equivalent accomplishments. No job gives a shit as long as you don't have a criminal record
I printed out 20 resumes that include no lies. If I don't get more than 2 interviews or 1 job offer with them I will lie through my fucking teeth and make so much shit up.
I swear if when I do that 10+ interviews in a week...
It is not a felony to lie on your resume, except in very specific cases like falong military srevive (which is easily verifiable so you ask for trouble). Besides, nobody actually checks them anyway. HR is too lazy, stupid, or both.
I was unemployed for 6 months and said I was working for some temp agency, I didn't think anybody would care enough to check due to the short term transitory nature of temp agencies, and I was right
