It's also difficult if you had really shitty employers. You see alot of IT projects fail due to mismanagement and the response is always to punish the people who had no say in any of the decisions.

This. Look, I hate to be dishonest, but lies are prized far above the alternatives. They will hire a useless liar before an honest performer every single time.

Please provide a mouth to suck my dick because fuck your shitty job with pointless requirements and shitty brain teaser interview questions

I don't even bother going to interviews like this and if they ask those gay questions ("What's your greatest weakness?", etc.) I just walk out

I got hired as a low level accountant and they called both my references, id imagine for an important job they'd vet you even more, wouldnt you if you were hiring someone? You wouldn't want some guy that shitposts on Veeky Forums to run your company

@whereismyname

that's because you're an accountant or a bookkeeper

trust is required in that profession otherwise you could end up embezzling a shitload of cash from your employer and they wouldn't even know

Top kek

No previous job experience and references
Have an idea
I start my own company and now I'm a self-employed CEO
Put that down as work experience
You know what all my friends are too
All my friends have their own businesses and are self-employed CEOs too
Put them down as work experience and references too
Suddenly everyone I know is a self-employed CEO of a company
None of us make any money from our "businesses"
CEO in name only
Don't care people fall for it

This or tell the truth.

I started my first programming job with no diplomas nor experience. I just told just give me a chance to show my skills, they told me to build a small app in an hour. I did it in 20 minutes. I've been a programming for the past 10 years ;-)

You gotta hustle your way in some way.

Has anyone here ever tried using a fake reference service? Like where you pay a company to pretend to be a non-fake sounding reference(s) for you? If so what's your experience with it?

And while we're on the topic of faking shit on resumes, what happens if you put down that you have degree from a defunct school like IIT Tech Institute? Is there still a place for them to verify it since the school is out of business?
