Misrepresenting yourself on your resume can result in a job offer being revoked. Or, if discovered later, it can lead to you getting fired. While you should try to present yourself as the best candidate for the job, you should do it accurately and honestly. Resist the temptation to pad your resume.
Do not just list all the responsibilities you had at your previous jobs in your resume. Show how you were an asset to the company. The most important thing a future employer wants to know is what you will do for them. Say how you came up with a new idea, saved your past employer money, got a specific result, or anything that is a quantifiable detail.
A prospective employer does not need an exhaustive list of everything you have done in a previous job. When describing your duties at a previous job, highlight your accomplishments and, whenever you are able to, quantify them with hard numbers on your job resume. It is all good and well that you led a team of six salespeople, but it is a lot more powerful to say that sales for your team increased 50 percent under your leadership.
