Tips From Donald Trump: Don’t Lie on your Resume

Jason Morris

In doing research for another blog post I came across an interesting website, Trump University.  Mr. Trump has obviously been capitalizing on his fame and the popularity of his show, The Apprentice. Like employeescreen University, Trump University gives tips on being successful in the business world.  Trump’s goal is to help entrepreneurs become successful.  Our job is to help them stay in business by hiring qualified people.

Trump has a great post about why you should not lie on your resume. In it he says:

What’s the harm, you wonder, in a few minor deceptions? Those lies can come back to haunt you. Recently, resume inaccuracies have hurt the careers of executives at several organizations, including Radio Shack, Bausch & Lomb, and the U.S. Olympic Committee. This is serious stuff. Good executives don’t want liars to lead their companies.

It’s a great post; short and sweet but it makes a great point: We all know what happens when he finds out you lied…..”You’re FIRED!”
