Please Don’t Even THINK About Lying on Your Executive Resume!

“Remember, it takes years to build up a reputation and a moment to destroy it.”

I’ve written on this topic at least once, I think twice before. But it bears repeating. Make sure your executive resume, LinkedIn profile, and any other career-related materials you have are completely truthful and accurate.

An article I ran across today on Fox Business says it well. Aside from the obvious morality issues, lying, fabricating, or exaggerating can have devastating consequences for your career and even for the company that employs you.

Note: This post previously contained a link to the article mentioned, but apparently FoxBusiness.com has since deleted or moved the article.
