Is it ok to lie on my job application?
Topic: Target jobs application
July 16, 2019 / By Burney Question:
Been struggling for the last 2 years finding a job, No one will hire me due to No-Experience. Yesterday went to an interview at Target, the fu--cker didnt even interview me, he only look at my application and said, im sorry we're looking for a more experience candidate, What a waste of time!
How im suppose to get experience no one will give me opportunity, How did they got their experience?
Should I lie on my job applications that I have work for an Out of Business store or company? Will they check for my employment experience on the computer? Im so frustrated now! have no other option to join the military.

First off, do you have a degree? Even with one, they will still ask for experience but it will improve your chances marginally.
You can't outright lie cuz if you say you know how to do something and when they hire you they will find out you can't. You can fudge the facts.
Check university websites, they have employers who will pay you very little but will offer the experience that you vitally need.
If you wanna fill gaps in your employment for the past 2 years, then say you volunteered. Also, dont use a one size fits all resume. Sending out resumes rapid fire does not work, just makes you depress.
Change your resume to fit with what you think they are looking for. Occasionally, what you think they are looking for will be very far off and youll look really foolish but generally you will be about right.

I think if they offer both applications, they are required to give both types of applications equal consideration. It wouldn't be fair otherwise, to offer an alternative, easier application at the expense of admission.
Try looking it up on the Common Application website. I think I've read something about that there.
I would not recommend lying on an application form , you can be sacked for gross misconduct if your employer finds out. what i suggest you do is either volunteer or take an internship as these will help to padd your resume, its better to work for free for a few weeks and then get a paid job with the experience. they will not normally check your experience but if you do put that you have worked for a company they may ask to see your p45 or certificate of income from that job. I have seen many people in my job who have lied and then been let go for gross misconduct you will be caught out.
If i were you i would look into volunteering or an internship for a few weeks, that way your resume will look more solid.
I hope things work out for you

THE BEST THING IS TOO LIE ON JOB APPLICATION RIGHT. IN TO DAYS MARKET, ITS A WASTE OF TIME GAS MONEY EVEN BOTHERING TOO LOOK. YOU DO NT HEAR NOTHING ANYWAYS. YES THEY CAN AND WILL, EVENTUALLY CHECK OUT YOUR APPLICATION, AFTER THEY DRAG YOU IN FOR A INTERVIEW. IF YOUR LUCKY TO GET ONE/ I DO NT WANT TOO ADVISE YOU TOO LYE ON APPLICATION BUT I HAVE KNOWN A FEW PEOPLE WHO SLIPPED THREW THE CRACKS AND GOT HIRED KNOWING THEY LIED ON APPLICATION. IF YOU GET HIRED FOR INSTANCE, AND THEY HIRE YOU WITHOUT CHECKING YOUR REFERENCES, AND THEN ONE DAY, SOMEBODY STARTS SNOOPING IN YOUR FILES IN A BACK OFFICE. AND CHECKS UP ON YOU/ IF YOU LIED WHILE WORKING THERE THEY CAN FIRE YOU ON THE SPOT. ITS CALLED OM MISSION OF FACTS/ SO LYING CHEATING PAYING SOMEBODY OFF FOR A JOB THESE DAYS IS LIKE A CRAP SHOOT/

No! Employers are sneaky little bastards that know if your lying! Just a heads up though, DO NOT apply for any CPI corp.jobs!

lying is never good. Especially in this situation. If they find out that you are lying, you are going to face some serious consequences. Most likely, they're going to find out.

First, you elaborate on what you have most either education or work experience if you have more education start there then, you compare in your mind your education to the job you want and filter the experience the most relates to the job and write it out, how many languages you speak everything you think you have as skills like typing, team player stuff like that. Any special certificates or recognitions you have received.
