They creep in everywhere, the little exaggerations or omissions: those little resume lies. Some resume writers even encourage them in the name of “helping” a job applicant look good.

You’re Fired! Dealing with Unexpected Career Transitions (Part 2)
by Kalindi Garvin - Nov, 2014
“You’re Fired” Somehow, it seems much more benign when Donald Trump says those two words at the end of every episode of The Apprentice. But when those words are directed to you, you may be shocked. What you do next, however, can make the difference in the length of time you’re unemployed, and how you fare financially. Generally, you’ll be told of your termination in a face-to-face meeting. The meeting might be led by you...

If I were to assess your resume it would be classified under at least one of the following four res...
