I usually don't really lie on my resume, but interviews are another matter
Q: Why should I hire you?
A: I am the best person for the job (Everybody is)
Q :Are you a team player?
A : Very much so. (Everybody is. Why do they even ask?)
Q: Have you ever had a conflict with a boss or professor?
A: Just minor disagreements...
Q: What is your greatest weakness? (Enough said. That reminds me of a Dilbert joke)
Q: If I were to ask your professors to describe you, what would they say?
A: (Why don't you ask them?)
These are pretty common questions during an interview. Do you really believe you can answer all of them without ever telling a little lie ?
(I think some can, most can't)
And of course some of the little lies do creep into your resume.
But I guess all of you already know that and I read too much Pinocchio as a child
