It is in our basic human nature to embellish, and this is especially true with our resumes. Be it with a phony love of horse riding or a fake love of socializing; and in the current employment climate, there is a feeling that you need to lie to put yourself ahead of the competition. This employment competition has led to a dramatic increase in people putting larger and larger lies in their resumes. This is where people have started to cross the line by lying about experience or qualifications, which is an extremely dangerous habit that will get you into trouble. This passage will aim to convince you to stick to honesty and explain why it truly is the best policy.

 

You Will get Found out

Businesses are getting wiser and wiser to your tricks and if you lie on your resume, I am sorry to say that you will get found out. Think about it, if you tell a company that you have a great ability in software management, but you can barely get past python, then they are obviously going to be able to tell that you are lying, and let me tell you, you will not be employed for a second longer. Companies have even started investing in artificial background checks, like the ones offered at https://medium.com/@marco.pargo/employment-background-check-fcra-compliance-artificial-intelligence-c2d01fcd3eed. so if you think you can beat a million-dollar AI background check then be my guest, but chances are you will get caught out.

 

Lying Will Stop Your Career Progression

This one is quite simple; how can you expect to improve yourself if you lie on your resume. Companies now offer their employees skill and qualification training, and if said company thinks you already have the skills and qualifications why would they invest in your training. Honesty allows for a company to know exactly where you are at, and how they should best invest in your future.

 

A Clear Conscience

Do you know how unsatisfying lying truly is, you will be sat in a job that you know you do not deserve. If you stick to your principles and remain honest then you will happily know that you were the best man or woman for the job and got the nod for no other reason apart from your ability. You will remain satisfied knowing your hard work and perseverance led you to this point. Which leads nicely into my final point.

 

A Sense of Achievement

Finally, you will know what it feels like to work for something and truly achieve it. You will receive such a confidence boost knowing it was you alone that did it. This feeling of accomplishment will put you in the right step for the rest of your life, giving you the understanding that if you put your mind towards anything you can do it, and that you are your own biggest asset.

 

I hope that this passage has convinced you that honesty is key. Not only is it highly likely that you will be discovered, but if you aren’t you will be living an inauthentic life, and who wants that.
