is it lawful to lie in job interviews /resume to clear out some massive obstacles to getting a job. i’ve had lots of unemployment and little work; can’t start my life out and i’m not in my 20s anymore. and i need to buy myself a home one day. nothing extreem, but to cover myself, eg:
change the resume employment dates on my resume so there are no surpise gaps. if i put generic dates (eg just the year) they query me and then if i tell the truth on the dates i lose out. otherwise they will ask me what happened and then i will have problems (got the sack because of illness etc). once i said it was personal and they didn’t like that answer.
i find they ask me lots of qs and if i tell the truth eg i was unemployed cause of illness (mind you i don’t know if i’m well enough, but i need to at least try)
it feels like the world wont let me in otherwise and i’m just doing nothing at home. and they all lie back to me in return for any truth. but if you lie a little, they get onto the other important questions and you really got a chance to get in.
even for eg a process worker, i don’t have experience. so they dont’ contact me. but other people might lie on there resume and get an interview, while i’m sitting here doing nothing. i just want to work.
if i oculd change dates on my resume, and lie when any personal qs come up to cover myself it would help me in interviews greatly. and they lie back - they say we’ll contact you to let you know but they don’t do that. they lie.
and what inventing you’ve got some experience elsewhere. they just don’t want ya if you don’t get experience, or if you not working something else.
please help. i wouldn’t want to oppose God’s will and miss out on any good things he may give me in the future.
i don’t lie but i need some guidance on this as i’m tempted to cover myself.
