I put SPCA work since I volunteered there in college. I graduated college in May 2014. I ended up putting my stepdads old company and having my brother vouch for me and the call center job I had this summer didn’t even reference check or background check my employment. Is it advisable to lie to fill in job gaps or what would you suggest? I am going to an interview tomorrow at a small office so I hope they don’t dig too deep.
