During the interviews with other companies, I told human resources that I wanted to move out because there are no projects (vacancies) in my location, so my company asked me to move to a different location for the same company. This is a lie.
I also had to turn down one offer from XYZ Company. So I called the HR department of XYZ and told them that I had received a better offer from ABC. By the way, I never had any offer from ABC. This was a a lie.
I am sure that I will never join XYZ so I feel the lie is okay. Even if I meet the same HR people again in a different company, they won’t remember my name for sure.
I don’t see any harm in lying to anyone as long as it is a white lie. I am so sure that my potential HR is not going to contact the old HR to know whether there are vacancies in my current location.
I know the fact I don’t want to remember my lies
On the flip side:
My human resources department is not going to remember my lies unless I join the same company where my name is there in their database.
So, what are the consequences of lying to an HR manager?
