CV fibbers' amnesty
Last week Patrick Imbardelli was one of the top hoteliers in the world – heading, as he did, the Intercontinental Hotel's Asia Pacific region. Today he's in the job market, after it was revealed Mr Imbardelli, who was about to be promoted to the board, had falsely claimed in his CV to hold three qualifications: two bachelor degrees and a masters.
It was an audacious fib, and one that eventually backfired. But the Monitor is blessed with a more forgiving nature than certain international hotel firms, and for one afternoon only is staging a CV fibbers' amnesty.
Big or small, we asked you to tell us about the, uhum, exaggeration(s) that might have slipped into your job resume.
Below is a selection of your confessions.
