If you have ever been through a job interview, you know how exhausting and stressful such an event can be. Most people are anxious about the fact that just one or two wrong answers to the recruiter's questions may lead to someone else getting the position they dreamt of.

Daily Mail writes: 'How to understand what they want to hear from you at an interview and whether you should tell recruiters the whole truth? Yes, recruitment specialist Bonnie Dilber believes that it is not necessary to do so. Moreover, she claims that there are 3 things you should always lie about in an interview.'

Never tell the truth about these if you want to get the job

Recently, a recruiter used a video-sharing platform to explain that the best way to go through an interview is to embellish the truth in your answers.

In a viral video that has now gained over 1.1 million views, Bonnie advised those looking for a job to lie about the reasons for leaving their current position and about their long-term plans.

'Here are three things you should lie about in every interview,' she said at the beginning of the video.

The first lie Bonnie recommended is the answer to the question of why you are leaving your current job.

'Firstly, if you are leaving your job because you don't like it, don't get along with your boss or colleagues, you shouldn't talk about it,' she said.

Bonnie added that potential employers don't need to hear about your conflicts with former colleagues or bosses, as you will come across as 'difficult.'

'Instead, it's better to say something like: "Things are going great, but I want to tackle more challenging tasks,"' she said.

Next, the recruiter asked viewers to share why they want this particular position.

'Listen, 100% of people want a job for money and benefits. This is not a unique answer, and it doesn't really set you apart from others,' Bonnie explained.

'And this is a red flag for them because they think that's all you care about.'

In this case, the coach advises telling potential employers that you are 'excited about the company's mission' and explaining why you are an excellent fit for this position.

The third and final thing, according to the recruiter, that you should lie about is your long-term plans.

'Every company wants talented employees who will stay and grow with them,' Bonnie says.

At the end of the career expert's segment, she noted that 'recruiters are not dumb,' and they know that in many cases, they will get lies as answers. However, according to her, the key here is to 'stand out.
