Lying on your resume is a time-honored tradition.  I mean, sure, if they catch you, you might get fired . . . unless, as Hollywood has taught us, you come up with a genius marketing scheme to save the company.  Hahaha!!

According to a new survey:

-  More than two-thirds of people swear they've never lied on their resume.

-  15% of people say they have lied on a resume

-  16% say they've "bent the truth."

-  People between 23 and 39 are the most likely to have lied on their resume

-  Men are 6% more likely to lie than women

Of the people who HAVE lied or "bent the truth:

-  79% say they were never caught

-  14% were caught but nothing happened to them

-  7% say there were consequences for lying.

In other words, you've got a 93% chance of a resume lie NOT backfiring on you.
