ording to recent workplace research, 14 percent of the professionals polled admit to having lied on their resumes.

This February, the Web site informally polled 561 professionals about their use of resumes. While 14 percent admit to flat-out lying, another 20 percent of respondents claimed to have "fudged a few things, but nothing I would consider a lie."

Eleven percent of respondents said that they had never fabricated anything on their resumes, but only because they feared getting caught.

An upstanding 54 percent said they had not lied on their resumes because "I don't need to lie."
