See the result of this extensive Linkedin Poll on whether it is OK to embellish or lie on a resume. Read what some of the voters said like Coach MS "Well, consider how you feel if you are going to date someone and they've lied on their profile, or 'embellished' their picture to make them more beautiful..and then you find they're not that at all. does that anger you ? do you feel "lied to", would you proceed with the relationship dance? If so, then maybe that kind of behavior has no bearing on how you yourself show up. It's ultimately up to you, and not someone else's moral code. One simply must be aware (as some executives have discovered to their chagrin) that if the lie is found out, there are consequences."
