Have you ever lied on your resume?

When you land an interview with an employer, it’s probably because they found your resume impressive. Specifically, they thought you had all the right skills and experience for the position. But what if your lied about all of that?

Lying on your resume can come back to haunt you, and we strongly advise against it. It will only cause more problems down the line if you do get hired for a job you are not equipped for. If you are considering lying on your resume, you should think twice. And if you have already lied on your resume, here’s what you need to do.

interview prep

The questions you ask in an interview are just as important as the answers you give to questions.

As a job seeker, it’s easy to get hung up on perfecting and preparing your answers to interview questions. And yes, this is important, however, at the end of every interview, you will most likely be asked “Do you have any questions for us?”

You should always have at least one question for the interviewer, because it shows that you have a genuine interest in the position and knowledge about the company. Asking questions is also a great way to further impress the employer and give you a leg up.

Here is the best question (in our opinion) to ask at the end of every job interview!
