    I don't have any work history or references so I have come to the conclusion that I need to fake some work history.

    Can anyone give me help with that? How can I make it seem plausible? How far do employers check on your previous employers?

    well if you've got a relative with a different surname or a friend of family with a good job, you could see if they'll pretend you did work experience for them and have them reference you based on that :dontknow:

    it's a bit risky tbh, i wouldn't risk it. i've read stories in which people have gone to prison becasue of lying on CV/applications, not sure whether it is true or not. but like someone mentioned, if you have any family that can promise to blag that you did some work in their business from " to " then go for it. make sure u get the dates right obv

    My family won't help at all.

    Surely forging work history can only risk a criminal conviction in certain professions?

    Depends who you lie to. I lied to work for a dodgy Carbon broking firm, since they were in the business of lying, I lied too and I think they knew. I made enough money to keep me for a year.

    Don't listen to people on this forum saying you'll get caught, you'll go to prison, if you get caught so bloody what, move on to the next. Do you think the world tells the truth?
