A popular hashtag on Twitter today is #FamousLies, and there are some infamous fibs that can impact one’s career in a disastrous way. Check out three lies and myths that could make or break your career.
Padding the Resume: It’s never good to embellish information on a resume or including during an interview, especially on information that can surely be verified. Experts typically advise against this, even in the most desperate of times (such as being unemployed for a long period of time). An infamous case of alleged resume padding was when reports surfaced in 2012 a former Yahoo CEO claimed educational credentials he didn’t have. (He would soon resign from the post.) A better option: Just stick to the truth, find better ways to market the skills you have and be clever about explaining employment gaps.
