Fake Resume

What exactly is a fake resume? Basically, a fake resume is one in which a specific alteration of your employment history is made in order to deceive a human resources person or hiring authority in order to get hired. This means that the fabrication is in the resume itself as well any supporting documents that you include with the resume, cover letters, salary information and references. As an executive recruiter (Headhunter) for several years I would read literally hundreds of resumes each week in hope of finding the “perfect” candidate for my client. As time passed I was amazed at how many people I caught in outright lies on their resume. Ranging from blatantly NOT having the required skills needed to lying about have a particular college degree. Personally I found it stupid to lie about something you can’t figure out how to bullshit your way through. For example, don’t lie about having knowledge of some particular software programming language if you’re not well versed in it. Now, if you’re familiar with it and can get up to speed rapidly once you have the job, by all means go ahead and pad your resume. Another thing that amazed and frustrated me about being a recruiter was how rigid and myopic many employers were about their job requirements. Many skills and experiences could be learned on the job within several weeks of repeated exposure, but many times I had the ideal candidate who didn’t have the required experience listed on his/her resume despite the fact the candidates previous history was relevant enough for him/her to do the job in a very competent fashion. As my experience grew, so did my ability to deduce that many of my smarter applicants were lying on their resumes to get the job. They were smart about the way they lied in that they only lied about things they could back up. It was due to these facts the idea for this underground manual began.
