This scenario, unfortunately, happens quite often when I receive interview feedback.
The career seeker decides to add a few technology buzzwords or responsibilities, that they weren’t directly a part of, to their resume.
During the interview, the interviewer decides to drill into those areas as part of their questioning.
There’s about a 90% chance the interviewer knows about those areas or wouldn’t be asking.
Uh, oh. Your pants start slipping, you’ve lost your buttons, your belt, and your suspenders.
You might have one more shot, the interviewer changes direction and asks another question.
Ka-plop, your pants are completely down and you’re embarrassed (or should be embarrassed).
Interview over, credibility lost, and you need new pants.
Please make sure your resume is buttoned up to avoid getting caught with your pants down during your interview.
