In almost all cases, lying on your resume is grounds for immediate dismissal. In some cases, it is also illegal. So no, it's not okay. No, it's not okay. Even if you are hired, if they find out you lied, they can fire you on the spot and you can't receive unemployment or anything. Most employers will check your references, do a background criminal check and call your past employmers. They might also ask for your transcripts. * You cannot be dismissed for being less than truthful on a resume. You can be terminated if you falsify a job application. Be that as it may, honesty is the best choice. Not being truthful on a resume can result in the person not being capable of doing the job they were hired for and therefore being dismissed for lack of work skills, not for the actual misrepresentation in the resume.
