7 Of The Craziest Lies People Have Actually Put On Their Resume!

Have you ever lied to get a job?  Have you ever lied when applying for a job?  Is your resume 100% true?

77% of HR managers say they’ve found a lie, a mistake, or something totally ridiculous on someone’s resume, according to a new survey by CareerBuilder.com.  Some are more ridiculous than others.

Here are seven of the craziest things HR managers have seen on people’s resumes:

1. The person’s last name was Flin, but autocorrect changed it to “Flintstone,” and he didn’t catch it before he sent it in.

2. A person misspelled “attention” in the phrase “great attention to detail.”

3. A person said they worked at a federal prison but a background check showed it was while they were locked up there.

4. Someone listed “taking long walks” as a skill.

5. A guy wrote that he’d work harder if he got paid more.

6. Someone printed their resume on paper with pictures of cats in the corners.

7. Someone listed “smoking” as one of their hobbies.
