QUESTION: I lied on my resume to get my current job (I said I had a degree which I do not). I’m up for promotion and they want to see an updated resume. Should I leave it as is or tell the truth now?
Busted! Come clean and accept responsibility for your actions. It’s up to your employer how they want to handle this. The worst thing you can do is perpetuate the lie. The second worst thing is to over-explain the situation.
