Hi, I have almost 8 years of exp. In my last org i worked for four years and now jobless. I am updating resumes continuously with no success. Can I fake my exp to show that i m still working in my last org. I will manipulate my relieving letter accordingly.

Dear Suman,
You can fake on CV and may be even on Letters, but will not the background verification revel everything and for this silly mistake you may lose a very good company and may be get black listed. Don't ever fake any resumes or experience.

I had already given my feedback on a similar querry raised by one anonymous colleague in this forum.
My dear friend, there is no shortcut for climbing career ladder. You have to climb step by step.
Similarly, job aspiring candidate should not only smart (or even oversmart??) but he should be
diligent, sincere, honest and a man of integrity. These are some basic traits, every employer is
looking from their people.
So, creating any fake document will ultimately lead to spoiling your career.
Give honest reports in your CV. If you are jobless now, please mention the same without any
Good luck!
Thanking you

Also, read this thread currently on a similar subject :
Still, I am curious as to WHY the OP concludes being " jobless" is the reason he is not being successful in his search presently . What are the views of people here - if two persons are equally suited and interested in a Job , one unemployed presently and the other employed , what would be the preference of decision makers in you organization ? And why ?
Views ?

I strongly agree with Mr.P.K.Nair, The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. Some people think that the truth can be hidden with a little cover-up like manipulating documents. My sincere advise is don't spoil your career with these silly things.

I will agree with all the seniors bt this is also realty that even if a person hav good experience but due to some circumstances he/she has to take a gap for 1-2years. No one consider them let alone call for interview. These all things make candidate forge their cv.

I will request others to weigh in on what Priyajiya66 you recall instances where your organization has taken on board someone unemployed at the time ? What factors went into that decision?
We had a case about 6 years ago when we proposed a Safety Engineer at the moment unemployed to an Auto major since we felt he was a good fit. He was hired at a salary higher than what he drew last since that was per the company's structure.
But that is the only case I recall. Although we have had several interviews since we have no hesitation in proposing unemployed people if other factors indicate a good fit.

Hi, That's the last thing one should ever do. Although i have come across many a cases of faking Payslips for hefty salary hike during transitions. And even got away with that for what ever reasons. Even i have seen in our very own HR fraternity of faking resumes to cover up the gaps. Could easily manage because of old boys ( Buddies ) circuit.
But i will never recommend such things. Be honest and straight. Fight for your dignity and honor. You must have proper justification. No need to be ashamed. Try hard. I request someone from the group to help Suman with an opening possibly.
All the best.
Warm Regards,

Hello Sumanbaner,
While concurring with all the members to desist from faking your resume, suggest pl mention a few more details to enable the members to give realistic & practical solutions to your situation ['Don't Fake' covers only what NOT to do to handle your problem, while you are looking for what TO DO I guess].
1] What's the career gap you are talking about--better still would be to give clearly the chronology of your career.
2] What's your gender--let that NOT give rise to ANY lopsided ideas now. Quite often the solutions available to one gender may not be available to the other.
3] What's the reason(s) for the gap? Pl be as clear as possible--UNLESS you are frank, everyone in the Forum would begin to make their OWN set of assumptions & the solutions would follow THAT path; and in the end, you won't have a solution that YOU can work on.
4] What's your educational background & sector/domain?
Guess these inputs should be able to lead towards a more practical solution from the members.
All the Best.
