    I ran across a site : fakeyourjob .com


    They will fake your life so you can get the job you want and vouch for you if the employer calls for references.

    You can say you were director of marketing for xyzaccounting inc and they will set up a website, number, and everything so when the employer calls they will become the company and say good things about you.

    thought this might be useful to know about.

    The problem I see with this one is that most people on here are trying to get away from jobs, not interview for them.....

    No, I just know people struggling to find jobs they're qualified to get but are self-taught or are just getting out of college and aren't getting hired because of "lack of experience" So was just searching the net and found this. Thought I would spread the info.

    That could be clever for some people, such as people who have probation and are required to prove they have a job, haha. but i could see this being useful to somebody i bet, but wouldn't expect a nice site design or anything from them probably.

    The world is awash with genuine money making opportunities!

    Then along comes someone with this two bit fraud - which will generate ‘Buttons' in revenue

    Never a day goes by when some idiot makes a pitch to be showcased as an ignorant ‘Dummy!'

    Never you mind.
    I'd be looking over my shoulder for the rest of my days in that job I couldn't deal with the lies.

    I once worked in a shop for over a year when one day they said " We tried to get a reference from *** and they wouldnt supply one " and I was basically questioned for an hour over it. And Im thinking...they look for them after a year?!?!? I just assumed they had forgotten and I had the job and that was it.

    FYI, I left my previous job contract 3 days early, thats why they were being a bit shitty and not giving a reference. >_>

    Yahoo CEO Fired For Lying On Resume


    Author: Mack Rawden
    published: 2012-05-13 17:00:09
    [​IMG]
    Just weeks after discovering its new CEO Scott Thompson falsely claimed a computer science degree on his resume, the Internet giant's board of directors has decided to fire its headman and even oust some of its own. The decision, while not altogether a shock, has sent ripples through Wall Street as investors wonder how the shakeup might affect future earnings.

    Thompson was hired earlier this year to great optimism, but layoffs and a focus on commerce rather than ads reportedly caused some dissension among top-level executives. When the resume flap was discovered, many thought Thompson could talk his way out of it. Unfortunately, he blamed the mix-up on Heidrick and Struggles, a headhunting firm who helped him land a previous job, and according to
    All Things D, they in turn produced the resume he submitted to them which included the lie. After that, there was almost nothing Thompson could do to keep his job.

    Rumor has it he'll claim a medical illness has forced him to resign from the company, but even if he has a documented disease, there's no way most won't trace the timing of his exodus back to his resume mishap.

    In addition to Thompson, five seats on the board of directors will also reportedly change with Daniel Loeb, the Third Point CEO who discovered the clerical error, getting to choose three of the replacements. Until a permanent replacement for Thompson can be found, Ross Levinsohn, an executive vice president for Yahoo, will steer the ship.

    Lying on a resume is a terrible idea. It's too bad Thompson had to be fired to learn that lesson.
