So you find this “great” job opportunity and you realize that this is the one that you have been waiting for all this time. But then it dawns on you that you do not have a professionally written resume. This is only the tip of the ice-berg. The reason that you have not been able to get the attention of the recruiters is that you do not have enough “meat” to serve on your resume.
In simple terms, you do not have much to write about or present in your resume. It could also be due to past issues that you find difficult to confront. This is probably the reason that you considering lying on your career resource to increase your prospects of securing your dream job.
Sad to break it to you, but you just killed every chance of actually winning a good job opportunity. Lying does not help in any way. Even if you think that it would make you appear quite charming in the eyes of the recruiters, you would lose that impression the moment you are asked to authenticate the claims with adequate proofs. What will you do then?
A resume is a targeted career resource which can be targeted and customized as per the requirement of the job opportunity for which the application is being made. While it is acceptable if you leave out certain details (such as specific jobs or details of gaps), nothing would ever justify fibbing on an important document like your resume. If you have a job gap, then it would be wise to explain it to the recruiters instead of messing the dates / duration of each job.
The best way to avoid falling into such situations is to make sure you have a clean record from the first day itself. Undertake learning opportunities and programs to develop your skills and always try to adapt to changing work environments by increasing your competencies. This will give you adequate scope to present yourself in a better manner on the resume.
Unless you have some achievements (worth writing about), even a professional resume writer would not be able to help you out. Simply using creative or custom resume formats would not fulfill your needs. Instead, you need to spend time with the writer and explain everything in details so that all of your issues are managed in a safe and ethical manner without resorting to fibbing.
