A survey by Time Magazine found that more than one million of 2.6
million applications reviewed contained lies.
One of the consequences of such rampant lying is that many truly
outstanding accomplishments have become “presumé lies”. Presumé
is the combination of “presume” and “resume”. In other words, the
interviewer will assume the resume is lying. Because of this many
feats of greatness can actually count against the applicant.
Be sure to substantiate outstanding successes during the interview in
a believable manner. This will help you overcome the presumption it
is just another resume embellishment.
