Can you lie about your degree on your resume?
No matter what the reason or justification for lying, if your resume isn’t entirely truthful, know this: You don’t have to resort to lying to win a job. There are ethical resume strategies you can use to address issues like minimal work experience, lack of or incomplete college degrees, and being fired.
What do employers show degrees?
Enduring to the end and graduating with a college degree takes determination and work ethic that employers admire, and they know it will benefit their company because college is, in itself, years of dedicated work experience.
Why do employers want degrees?
Employers increasingly ask for a college degree because they are often too lazy to dig deeper to determine if applicants have the necessary skills and competencies to do the job, whether they have a degree or not. Most people involved with hiring hold a four-year degree, so they think everyone else should have one.
