“I need to lie in my CV, how do I do it if I dont want to get caught?”
Lying is never a good idea, especially if you are taking a big step towards accepting the full responsibility of a new job. It is a common fact that lies have a tendency of snowballing which most frequently leads to numerous problems and misunderstandings at the work place. There is no need in lying as you can simply skip or adjust information you would like to remain secret (such as age, education, specific experience, etc).
If you want to apply for a job and you don’t fully match its basic requirements, don’t give up on sending your resume! It is still possible to apply for a great opening avoiding lies and compensating the lack of the necessary skills by presenting your strong professional qualities. You should stay honest with your potential employer, but make an effort to take extra initiative where necessary, meaning that you can always send a cover letter for expressing your attitude towards the prospective position. Use it to explain that you don’t possess all of the skills required, but you are more than willing to learn them.
For instance, if you apply to a managerial position but you have never managed people before, list achievements or skills that would promote your leadership, honesty and professionalism. In this case it would be relevant to mention such abilities as recognizing problem areas and implementing solutions, negotiating skills, public speaking skills, ability to transform ideas into actions, credibility among colleagues, setting priorities for tasks and activities, time management skills, cooperation and commitment.
In you cover letter you may as well express your high hopes for getting the opening position. Tell your prospective employer you understand the fact that you don’t fully match their requirements and expectations. However, make an accent on your strong desire and commitment to acquire new skills needed for the job.
Along with using your cover letter as a tool for promoting your candidature, eliminate lying in your resume. Don’t tell things like “I speak 4 languages” if you really don’t, because it can turn into a big fail for you if an interviewer decides to test your knowledge.
No matter what it takes to create a positive impression about yourself as a prospective employee, pointing out your strong sides is always better than making up your professional background by lying.
