Can you lie about work history?

If you’re caught lying before you’re hired, you won’t get a job offer. If the organization discovers you lied after you’ve been put on the payroll, you can be fired. Lying on your resume can also impact your future employment. Maybe you just got a call to schedule an interview for a perfect job.

Is it illegal to apply for a job with a fake name?

A resume is not a legal document, so technically you can. However, if you consider the consequences of using a fake name then it should be obvious that it’s not a good idea.

Can you use nickname on resume?

Nicknames are perfectly acceptable to put on a resume as long as they aren’t too informal. Using “Dan” as the shortened version of “Daniel” is just fine, but shortening “Benjamin” into “Jamster” is not (even if, God forbid, that’s what you like to be called).

Should I use my full name on resume?

It is not necessary to write your full name on your resume but you do want to make it easy for the hiring manager to differentiate you and contact you. One name may be memorable unless it is really common. However, if you have strong and relevant qualifications they may give you a call without having your full name.

What should I put under my name on my resume?
