just say you did work at whatever factories are near you
if they look into it say you were a contractor/temp worker

Loan officer a.ssistant. Helps loan ifficers who do home loans for peiple. After a few mo ths was able to move to another position higher. Loan coordinator and analyst. And just 3 weeks ago move to a better job. What helps in my industry is that there are people whove been in it 10 years and are so imcompetent. It makes it wasy to overtake people and their positions because some people are only there because of senioeity not actual production. The fact that I produce more already puts me on my managers good side.
Unfortunately I have to agree with this here. Being a branch manager and dealing with loan officers, processors and some underwriters can be like pulling teeth without Novocain. Frustrating as sh*t. I make sure I give thank you cards to the good ones or some kind of perk. Gotta love banking

who here has lied about extracurricular activities or GPA? How much did you change it?
I would never lie about my GPA because it's too easy to get caught. If the employer asks for a transcript you're fu*ked. If your GPA isn't that high, just leave that sh*t off. As for extracurricular activities, you can probably get away with that as long as you have a good story to back it up. I joined group at school for like a week but I'll be damned if I didn't put it on my resume.

But what if the employer never asks for the transcript. I've read that there are many times the employer never asked for a transcript

I used to be a recruiter, and I had one candidate lie on her resume. She interviewed, knocked it out the park, was hired, then called me up a few days later and admitted she lied about how long she was at her previous job. She wrote down on her resume that she had been there for two years, but the chick had only been there for two months. The company decided to still hire her anyway, but she ended up failing the drug test

As far as lying on your resume, it really depends on what position you're going for. I would advise against it obviously. Also be weary of that because some companies do call your previous jobs to check if you were actually employed there.

I have before and gotten away with it & was able to get the job I have now. Once I didn't get away with it though, and it prevented me from getting ANY job at the company which sucks since they're all over the state....

damn, he came up! Anyone here lie about their GPA? Like boost it up a lil? Or about extracurricular activities?
Yeah, I boosted my GPA to a 3.4. Only time I've been "caught" is when they emailed me back asking for an official transcript, has never came up in an interview otherwise.

EDIT: And honestly, logically, you prolly should boost your GPA. If it's like mine, nobody that legit cares for GPA would give you a shot and if they care THAT MUCH about grades, they're gonna ask for a transcript before physically meeting you and you wouldn't get hired being honest about it anyway. Most employers just skim your resume in the first place and really go over it when they talk to you, so if you got a degree but no GPA, that's an easy quick red flag to throw your sh*t in the trash.

I've come across both. One was with a small engineering firm asking for my transcript AFTER the physical interview. The other companies, both larger companies, I was asked during the application screening for an unofficial transcript. I tend to find larger companies use GPA as a way of screening through applicants in order to find out who actually gets a physical/phone interview.

If you wanna know another way many companies screen folks out is that companies look often look for people with degrees from schools they target and/or previous experience with specific companies they have good business relationships with.

Any long term impacts of lying? Like getting black listed from certain businesses or something?

It's all good until you get comfortable at your job and then HR finally decides to check your history. Then not only will you get fired, you probably can't even list them on your resume if you're going to look for another job.
