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.

More Lying Required
Advertised a position for an electricity trader, with background in business analysis. Strong attention to detail necessary.

Got an application from a bloke, including opening personal statement expounding excellent analysis skills, detail etc.

Then got to previous roles over last 15 years:

Current: Offal Sorter
Previous: Apple Picker
Previous: Pear Picker
Previous: Chicken Sexer (????)
Previous: Tomato Picker

MMmmm....more lying required. Gave him an interview anyway for a laugh. He turned up in shorts, wellington boots and a vest.
