Hey guys, so I'm a recent college grad and I had a quick question for people who've interviewed for/gotten new jobs in the last few years.

When I was younger I always exaggerated my resume (like everyone does) and almost always put my references as people who worked for the company but would exaggerate their position. They get the call, say "hey yeah I'm a manager/whatever here that guy's great hire him" whatever. I've had tons of friends tell me they do the same thing, even my mother told me up until her most recent job she's done that. I'm now applying at offices, and currently work in an office. I put my head boss as a reference but I've had people telling me I should just put somebody who knows me better and say they're higher up than they actually are for a better reference. Still terrified this is going to come back and bite me in some way, but I don't know how much employers actually look into these things. Anyone got a tip?

'Friend' was already used.

You ruined it Parker. How does that make you feel?

I don't see how that wouldn't work.

My thoughts on the subject is you gotta put people that know you the best... When they call someone and they only are able to say "_____ is a good guy" it doesn't seem as good as someone who is able to say "_____ is a good, hard, and dedicated worker. For example I saw him doing..." The more details that the reference is able to give about you the better

I tried to explain to my ex the concept of Australian "upside down" maps. It's always stupid conversations like that that become the root of the worst fights

You don't want a "generic" answer I guess, something that separates you from the rest. I tend to think, if you got as far as them calling your references, you're in a small pool now. So anything can separate you.

Going off that, I honestly dunno the line between superiority, but a meh reference, or a someone lower position, but awesome or personal reference.

For example, for me, I've worked several restaurant jobs, in all my resumes, I've put not the GM of the store, but rather the manager in charge of whatever job I did. Yes it's not the top dude, but I think this dude knows me way more.

Also, don't get me wrong I have exaggerated my resume alot "I was the Head Marketing Project Leader at a reputable law firm." In reality I literally put brochures into boxes. But the lawyer was fine with it, and goes along with it to this day.

Maybe I'm not grasping your situation right though.

Awww ****. So, I deposit cash into an Atm. It's taking a good minute to process. Then this ****ing machine has the audacity to say, "can't process cash.... unable to return cash...have a nice day. Contact your financial institution
