Lets discuss tips, tricks and stories of lying on our resumes, or "creatively exaggerating".

I know a lot of people on here are/were having some trouble finding jobs while in school or just freshly graduated so I think this would help a lot of people.

I have interviews now at small investment management groups because I worked customer service at a bank. Except, I just took all work I was given, made a case study about things I sort of knew about and attached it to all of my applications.

When interviewed, I explained my role as a subset of that team. So I pretty much said I was a banker even though I was a teller.

You can falsify everything on a resume. They rarely check, and when they do it is for defense-related government jobs, and key roles in large corporations.

The only 2 things you should not lie about:
1) education
2) criminal history

Fake it till you make it anons. Even if they find out, YOU WERENT GONNA GET THE JOB ANYWAY WITH A REAL RESUME, so its like your only risk is missing out on something you were gonna miss out on anyway.

Yeah that's kinda what I thought too. Really seems like no downsides desu.

On job apps I always say I'm a transsexual biracial just to get past the automated screening and HR harpies
>>
>>1006187
Any tips on how to do it in order to make it not obvious that you don't have the work experience you put down?

Should I make up a bunch of responsibilities and a company name or something?
>>
>walked in on my boss working on his resume yesterday
>it wasn't even very impressive from what I read
>kinda concerned he's going to quit on short notice and I'll be left with no immediate supervisor to shield me from the blame for my own screwups

Fuck I might have to be accountable soon.
>>
>>1006187
>They rarely check
Seems like you've only applied to shitty retail jobs then.

>biracial
>not being transracial
Are you even trying?

>>1006143
I don't have an engineering degree, but literally no one has asked me for my GPA.

Add a filler section using "relevant coursework" and label some upper-level classes and electives that are in line with the job(s) that you are applying to.
>>
if you just put down that you went to a mid or low level uni just so you can meet the meme bachelors degree criteria, does it really matter? how can they check
>>
>>1006271
Maybe ask for transcript or call school.
>>
>>1006274
I've heard you can buy fake degrees or fake transcripts, and that many have already done this and are working in every field, sometimes even government
>>
>>1006223
Find a job description for the job you're faking and rewrite their description of the job in your own voice, maybe throw in some honors/awards from that job for shits and giggles.
>>
>>1006320
I'm just worried if I don't rehearse it well enough it'll get called out.
>>
>>1006261
No option for transracial. If I could put genderqueer otherkin I absolutely would

That disclaimer saying it doesn't affect your application is 200% bullshit

Was applying for months without any responses by putting white male, then I started doing this and instantly interview requests

People don't blacklist for that kind of shenanigans?
>>
This technically isn't lying..
I stopped putting my GPA on my resume my senior year.. I had tons of internships with related experience. Got 3 offers after for full time . Surprisingly internships were more strict.
>>
>>1006727
They do, they just wouldn't when it pertains to jobs that you can't build a career out of.
>>
>>1006133
This.
>>
How about saying you were high management in a failed biz like circuit city or the wiz?
>>
>>1006193
Holy shit this is genius anon. Thanks for the tip

>>1006187
I lie on my resume about my education. I say I have a BBA from an online college and just pick one. They have never checked as far as I know for verification, but I only apply to places that ask for any BA(nothing specific) as they are less likely to check. They just want it as a formality.
>>
>>1006356
Do they ask about it when you show up and are a white dude and not biracial barbie?
>>
>>1007345
>Tfw actually getting a BBA when I could just lie about it and save $50k

lmao smdh

>I say I have a BBA from an online college and just pick one.

That's because BBA from online college is worth absolutely zero.
