lately I got a job offer that I really interested in, to match the job requirements, I exaggerated my worl experience in the resume, basically I really had the relevant work experience in my current company for 3-4 months before, but later I was asked to handle other areas of duties, another colleague took up the responsibilities. I got promotion twice in the past 2 years and I still work closely with that colleague, like assisting her preparing regular report, data extraction, but just no longer responsible for the daily work.

During the interview, I told the hiring manager I am the person who hande the daily work of that particular area, I lied to the HR and manager.

Now they gave me the offer and want to pay me 1 month salary so that I can resign and onboard earlier.

Now I worry, what if they find out that I actually not the person who handle the daily work?

Tell the truth and risk losing the opportunity. A troubled mind and conscience wont go away.

Ethical question aside... can you do the work expected of you? If so, then take the job and be wiser next time. It's no uncommon for someone to fudge a bit on their resume and present them in the best light possible.

Should you choose to stay, I hope you appreciate your colleague a little more. But if you decline the job offer, you don't have to fess up.

If you can do the work, just take the offer. Don't mention anything. If you can't do the work? Don't take it, and leverage the offer with your current company for more money.
