This is a question Lies I told on my CV

I've not had to lie on my CV (resumé for all you 'merkins) for a while, but way back when I was a teenager and C was a cool programming language, I listed it as one of my skills.

My new boss was remarkably nice about me spending my first week's employment reading a "how to program in C" book.

"experienced java programmer..."
Although i am a capable programmer in 'c' and 'assembler', all the companies seem to want java. So I added it to my CV and downloaded a book on it.

Come interview and i'd been doing it for 2 weeks (half-arsed, but enough to blag it.

What I wasn't expecting was the "Tell us about something you had to learn quickly, and how did you cope..."

"Well I recently put on my CV that i could program in java however i...only started....it....shit..."
