With the high statistics of youth unemployment and unemployment in general, some of the job seekers have resorted to lying about their skills and experience on their CVs.
Lying on your CV is as good as committing fraud, especially using an institutions’ name when you have not completed any qualification with that institution. Furthermore lying about your experience in a certain role or references does not make it any better.


As reported by Managed Integrity Evaluation (MIE) in 2017, six most lied about facts on CV’s include responsibilities, skills, titles, period of employment, experience and reasons for leaving the previous job. Candidates feel their only way of securing a position in their desired company is through exaggerating their skills however, there is a fine line between “selling yourself” and lying. There are many ways to kill a cat but lying on your CV will only leave you with a criminal record and without a job.


Lies that land you behind bars include and not restricted to :
Lying about your qualifications on any social media platforms be it Facebook or LinkedIn even Twitter.


Lying about qualifications that are not accredited however, should you be able to prove that you were not aware that the institution provided a qualification they are not accredited they will be held liable.
Using references that will lie for you and yet you have not worked for them.
Lying about your personal information such as citizenship, age and residential information.


Any of these offenses can have you sentenced for a minimum of five years in prison. So rather than lying on your cv always try to find ways to re-brand yourself. Should your employer find out that you lying they can terminate your contract with immediate effect and get you arrested.
