When searching for a job, it is essential to be straightforward and honest in person and on paper. For example, many people have gaps in their work history for a number of reasons. Don’t hide them. Explain gaps in your past rather than filling them with fabricated details. Be precise with previous dates of employment and educational accomplishments. Avoid hiding or inflating your history. Exaggerating your background could lead to a question of integrity. Employers always appreciate honesty. You are who you are!
