The reason I ask is I am looking for a job and during my job hunt period I have been approached by recruiters who ask me modify my resume according to requirement. Like 5 yrs of consistent Java experience OR VB/PB experience.
I am not comfortable doing it - the fact that I'll be sitting across a table in front of a Hiring Manager and LYING scares me terribly.
Is it just me trying to be ultra-honest and the result is no job ?
I would appreciate your opinions.
