Lying on your CV
Many people say that they make small or larger 'lies' on their CV - whether this is by omission or actually stating something that is untrue varies from person to person.
Classic lies people make are with regard to upgrading the grades they got in their exams, saying they stayed at university for the whole term when they left early, or feeling free to upgrade themselves to a more prestigious university that happens to be in the same region - for instance Oxford Brookes students upgrading to being Oxford students.
Other lies are more brazen - simply lying about what their job involved, how long they did it for, and claiming responsibility for decisions that were made by their team leader and not themselves.
