Getting economical with the truth on a job application

Have you done this? Did it work out? Did it backfire?

Every single time! That’s what they’re for. Obviously wouldn’t invent a qualification I couldn’t prove, but have certainly beefed up my responsibilities in a role/my achievements (i.e. pretending there are any).


Think you just have to be aware of how you can justify yourself in an interview. I think lots of people will claim achievements etc that being to their team rather than themselves per se, but if you can explain your own pivotal role in that, then it’s not an issue.
