Reason #2: The Interview Process Will be a Time Waster
Out of all of the reasons, as a hiring manager, I can honestly say that this is the reason that bothers me the most. Many employers have little time to vet and interview potential applicants, and if someone applies for a position they are not qualified for, it takes extra time and resources to filter them out, especially if the employer does not have the option of using tools to automatically filter out applicants.
Reason #3: Lying on a Resume Could Hurt Your Reputation
While this might be okay if you live in a large city like New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta or Chicago where there are hundreds of employers that hire web developers, it is very important that you interview strategically if you live in a mid-sized or small city with fewer job opportunities. In cities like Milwaukee and Boston, for example, having a solid reputation matters. People tend to know each other well, and a high emphasis is placed on networking and personal recommendations.
