The Lies on Your Resume Will Find You Out

I heard this on the Mr. Nice Guy podcast (http://mrniceguy.org/ - Show number 267) recently and saw it reported on CNet.com and elsewhere: David Edmondson resigned as CEO of Radio Shack recently amid questions about his resume.

At my company, someone was recently let go for the same reason.

Know this to be true: with more companies doing background checks, the lies on your resume will find you out. Therefore, make sure not to overstate your accomplishments and qualifications.
