7. Half-Truth

I’m sure you all know that famous saying, “a half-truth is a whole lie.” Also, lying by omission in your resume or telling your potential employer only half-truths about your work experience or about your former position will also damage your career. Needless to say, it may even cost you your dream job someday.

I’m sure you wouldn’t want to take that risk, so try to be completely honest and make sure that all the information in your resume is 100% accurate.

Even though you might be tempted to think sometimes that a prestigious former employer, a fancy job title or knowledge of some exotic foreign language might take you places, they will not help your career unless they are actually true. Have you ever lied when writing your resume? If so, did your employer find out about it? What other lies in your resume do you think might cost you your job?
