I hope that I'm never so desperate for a job that I would consider lying or even stretching the truth on my resume. How would you get through an interview in which you'll be asked about skills and knowledge that you claim to have, but don't? And even if you bluff your way through and get the job, odds are it will become obvious if you don't have the qualifications you claimed that you did. Either way, it harms your professional reputation.

I'd be leery of dealing with any recruiter who asks you to lie; in fact, I'd be tempted to report them to their management. Both their client and potential candidates deserve somebody who cares about doing their job with a minimum of competence and accountability.

I have been corresponding with a recruiting firm about a possible job as a SharePoint administrator, and they asked me to change my resume. The job description includes some things that I have never worked with, such as Infopath. The recruiter asked me to edit my resume to show experience with about half a dozen things I've never done, to match things in the description, and email him that new version.

I won't say what I've done or not done - I'm interested in your thoughts about it.
