I always tell my clients to target their resume towards the preferred role but to 𝚗𝚘𝚝 𝚏𝚒𝚋.
A story’s going viral right now about someone who did.
Things will catch up.
You pull a fast one on the recruiter.
The recruiter mistakenly assumes you’re a qualified candidate and hands your resume to the hiring manager.
The hiring manager, with a keen eye for the work involved and the ability to match that with the candidate’s resume, assumes you’re a solid prospect.
Now it’s interview time.
Wow, so far, so good on this acting performance, but now it’s time for the headliner show.
What to do now that you’re in the interview room?
Sure, you can keep the lie going and try to BS your way into a job, but for what?
So you can “get caught” sometime in the first couple of days, a week, maybe a month?
Why do that to your reputation, and to the company? It’s expensive AF to hire someone.
So please, again:
