    I'm a uni student at Bournemouth University in the UK. I'm studying journalism, and am writing a feature for my final year about people who have lied to get a job. This is only for a uni project - IT WILL NOT BE PRINTED. If you have ever lied to get a job, however trivial, please get in contact. Your name will remain anonymous if you wish it to be. Please contact me at deleted if you wish to take part.

    Thanks!

    I think everyone inflates 'themseves' in a CV. Both parties know that. I would never lie about actual credentials or hard facts, but i can spin a LOT of BS around what's already there!
