Has anybody here ever lied their way into a job? What kind of lies did you tell? What was the job? Did everything work out in the end? Has this ever backfired on you?

Yes.
I care about this company and will be loyal no matter what.
Retail and then clerical work.
Of course. I jewed on them like a dirty mercenary would when a better offer came along.
No. Everyone always believes that you'll be loyal, when no one is loyal to anyone in this job market.

Corps lie all the time to get the edge.
Even the playing field by lying back. Sit through all the bullshit "team player" nonsense they shove down your throat with a fake smile, then if something better comes along, drop them like a sack of rocks.

Why do we even have a thread on this shit, anyway? I know lots of people lie to get their dream jobs in this cutthroat environment but wouldn't people be snooping on /biz/ and tracking IDs?

Im pretty honest the only thing i cheese on is my last salary. I always want way more. It usually doesnt work for me anyway.

>Has anybody here ever lied their way into a job?
Yes, today actually. I had a job interview at a small accounting firm, a side job for extra income, still in college, Accounting. Job interviewer was really interested in hiring me, asked me if I had any more applications ongoing.

>I said yea, 2 more.
>Not true.
>Hired me on the spot.
>Finally a job, after 3 months of searching.

It was just a reflex, to make it look like people were interested in hiring me.

Other than that I don't think so.

In fact I'd be willing to say that if you didn't do this you are dumb.

It's not really much of an outright lie, it's not like you lied about your credentials or forged documents or something but it helped you significantly.
>>
It's okay to lie to HR, they're lying to you as well about your job description so just fuck them back.

The only thing I've lied about is my GPA, just to get that 'extra' point on my checklist, to make myself look better. The requirements for being a candidate stated "3.0 GPA and above". I downloaded an unofficial transcript and manipulated my grades with photoshop software to make my GPA 3.04. Just above the mark. It worked.

Nice. Good to show you're not desperate even if you were.

Man, I graduated and still can't get a job.
