10 Common Job Interview Lies

No matter how desperate you might be to a get a new job, telling lies during your interview won’t get you anywhere.

Here is a list of typical porkies that candidates commonly tell during their job interviews. Take a look through them and make sure you don’t make the same mistake:

  1. Salary isn’t important to them
  2. Reasons for leaving their previous company
  3. Exaggerating their level of seniority in their previous position
  4. They are willing to relocate
  5. The salary of their previous role
  6. Fake referees
  7. Job titles in previous roles
  8. Length of employment at previous organisations
  9. Commitment and passion for career
  10. Exaggerated qualifications
So, what ever you do, and no matter how desperate you are, don’t lie during your job interview – it will almost certainly come back to haunt you.
