The current system of job seeking often requires to lie on resume. It is even being highly recommended by people that coach people for job seeking, although with some moderation of course.

    Speaking strictly of software industry

    There are two kinds of lying.

    • Lie about language/framework you don’t know
    • Lying about qualification, company you worked with, title held, etc.

    The first kind of lying is fine as long as you’re confident you can crack the interview. Your knowledge is needed and these days, since companies anyway want everything, lying about some language may get you an interview call.

    Do not evet lie about second type. Most companies conduct a background check on you to verify about your details. They even sometimes connect with your previous employer to verify the details.

    If you’re lying here you can land in a big trouble

      Does the NDA trick work for the second kind?

      “I worked for 2-3 years part time and remote to a company, but I was forced to sign an NDA about it.”

        Nope, don’t even try it.

        They generally hire external agency who has their ways to verify every possible details.
