How do you explain being dishonest on a job resume?

I was dishonest on my resume. Basically I did not lie about where I worked only the dates. I tried to cover up a stretch of unemployment. Anyways I got offered a job and then they did the background check. I need to explain myself for what I did. Please don’t say I should not have done this. I already know that and learned my lesson. I just need a professional idea on how to explain myself. I really really wanted this job. Ideas?

HOW do you write a resume for each job?

Career advisors always say that you should tailor your resume (not just your letter) for the job you want.

I understand what tailor (or customize) means – but can someone get to brass tacks on this and tell me HOW you actually customize a resume to a job you want to apply for? I mean, my experience is my experience. I understand how to highlight skills and achievements, but I DON’T get how to customize my resume for a job that has, say, 20 very specific requirements listed.

Thoughts? Advice?


Teachers, how do you list substitute teaching on a resume/job application?

I’m not really sure the exact way to list it. Since 2003, I have subbed in about a dozen districts. Obviously I can’t list them all on my resume…is it ok to put something like “various districts” or should I just leave out any reference to the location at all?

Also, how would this be handled on a job appliction, when there is a box or line to write in “employer” and “supervisor” (as a sub you don’t have one

Is it necessary to list a job on your resume/application that you only worked at for 2 weeks?

I got called for a different (better) job after working at one place for only a week. The new job wanted me to start 1 week later. So, I gave the other job notice. In total, I only worked there for 2 weeks. Is it really necessary to list it on my resume?

How long must you work at a job before it is appropriate to include that job on your resume?

I’ve been working at a job for about 6 weeks, but it’s not the location I want to work. Now that the job market is loosening up a little, I think I might be able to find something in a more favorable location. I feel like I should put my current job on my resume, but I don’t know if 6 weeks is long enough to make it considered a “working experience.” Or maybe it is…?

If I make up waiter jobs on my resume and they ask me why I went form one job to another, what do i say?

I want to get a job at the cheescake factory but i dont think that I have enough restaurant experience, so I’m going to lie on my resume, saying that I have had jobs that I haven’t had. What’s a good reason for moving from job to job without having moved to another city? I live in LA.
