Chapter 5. The Interview > Telling the Truth

Telling the Truth

This next piece of advice will sound obvious and preachy: you should tell the truth. Everyone tends to exaggerate and embellish their experience during an interview and a little of this is expected. However, if you exaggerate or actually lie to the extent that what you’re saying can’t be substantiated, you’ll get yourself in trouble in several ways.

First, you’ll probably be more transparent than you realize. You may appear anxious or hesitant, which may give the interviewer doubts about you. Inevitably, each lie will provoke the now doubtful interviewer into asking you a follow-up question, and you’ll only get in deeper and deeper.
