After reading this article, I just have to ask… why did he lie? He did not need to lie. He has an accounting degree and NOT having a Bachelor’s degree in computer science does not seem that it would be a deal breaker based on his track record. It is very sad to see this happen. Who knows, maybe he will make a come back like Robert Irvine did on the Food Network. (He lied about making Princess Diana’s wedding cake.)
Moral of the story: NEVER lie. Do not even fudge a little. More than likely you have SOME attribute that would far outweigh the lie. Dig a little deeper, be strategic, but never lie.
What is your take?
