Lied To Prospective Employer, Think They'll Find Out? - Page 3

If they find out beforehand they just withdraw the offer, if they find out after, worst case I just go back to one of my old employers or am "self-employed" for a while or join the Peace Corps or something.
Either way, this helps both myself as well as the company, as I am better qualified than anyone else they will find and will add more value than any other prospects. If this brings great things to both of us then I'm fine with it.

Didnt you start this thread? I remember it from a while back. Telling everyone you are better qualified, when you aren't, isnt the way to get hired.

My money is on sooner, rather than later.

I know some larger companies continue to do background checks on new hires after they start. It's not unheard of for someone to get let go a couple weeks after starting if something comes up in these checks.

LOL @ OP not getting the responses that he wanted and backpeddling.

Random story about lying about working dates: When I first started working in China, I needed at least 2 years of work experience in my field in order to qualify for a Foreign Expert Certificate. I only had 1.5 (1 year at my previous job, half a year before that when I was in college). They (of course) told me to lie about it on my CV when I sent it in to the government, but the government also needed a recommendation letter from each of those jobs. I emailed my old boss from my first job and told her the situation, and she said "sure, no problem. I'll just write the date we first met in the recommendation letter so it's more vague in case you need to have proof of more experience". I had first met her a year before actually getting hired because I really wanted a position there (it was quite competitive at the time) and was sort of wait-listed. Long story short, it's a college part-time job that I have still listed on my CV as 1.5 years when it's actually .5. The job is basically irrelevant on my CV at this point in my career and I figure if the boss is okay with it, then it's a victim-less crime, like sexual lewdness. teacha.gif

Goodbye. I hope you get fired and thrown in prison.

Good job. Wonder how many lies the moral crusaders in this thread tell their co-workers/superiors/clients on a daily basis heh.

So you fudged a date by 1 year on your last job, big deal. People get by doing far worse, FAR worse.

My company fact checks resumes. If you were offered a job, you would likely have the offer rescinded because of this.

The issue never even came up after my initial posts, and I even had like two more interviews and a meet & greet with my boss. This is my first week on the job and it's going great; everyone loves me and it's a great place to work. I have absolutely no reservations. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
