This happened recently when I asked a random question about one of the achievements mentioned by the candidate in his resume. The candidate seemed very surprised that he had actually achieved that.
Well, modesty apart, you know how the story ends.
So, if you feel like embellishing your resume – do it at your own risk – but do try to remember what you written. It leads to quite an awkward silence if you don’t.Followed by a never ending walk to the door.
