The information on your resume must be credible!
When you have completed your resume the first question to ask yourself is:
Am I who my resume says I am? Here’s why:
1. Prospective employers usually check the information on your resume for verification, especially the information about job experience. If you do not have any work experience, do not make up something and put it on your resume. If your prospective employer finds out that you have no work history at the place your resume said you had and in a certain position for a certain amount of months/years, your application will not be considered.
2. You may be referred to another employer based on the information on your resume. If this other prospective employer contacts you to verify some information and you are blank that is a big X. It looks bad on you as well as the company and the individual that referred you.
3. Many prospective employers ask for a certified copy of all documents proving qualifications stated on your resume. All qualifications written on your resume must be verifiable. If you are still reading for a particular certificate, ensure that you state that it is pending.
Whereas some persons may argue that a little white lie in everyday life will cause no harm, in the job sphere it can be a HUGE problem. You may get away with it now but later down the line it can stir up big trouble. Be on the safe side! Be sure to provide only credible information on your resume!
