    I believe and I know that truth always wins! Even if you lied in the resume about your work experience and the employer hired you, later it will find out that the written resume does not correspond to the reality. My nephew after graduation had small work experience and had a huge break in the experience but he wrote the truth in the resume and now he has a good job and he really likes his job. If you don’t know how to present your resume in a right and professional way – ask about help resume writing service.

    Hello. Thanks for posting this useful article. In my opinion, every job hunter should read this information before sending out their resumes and looking for a job. One of my coworkers lied about his work exprience and achievements on his graduate resume because he thought it would win him a better job. Of course, HR managers quickly reveal the lies and out such application in the “no” pile. Luckily, I’m among 73.5% of people who have never written lies on their resume. The secret here is to know how to highlight your strenghts and to market yourself to potential recruiters. If you aren’t sure you can do it yourself, turn to a professional resume writing service rather than mention lies on your application document.
