A "guidline?" I have never worked somewhere in my nearly 30 years in the biz world working mostly for very large corporations where you would not
be fired if they caught you fabricating anything on your resume. I'm not talking about embellishment. I'm talking about lying.
A resume is very much a declaration of truth in the employment world I have occupied.
And Robert Irvin did, in fact, lie about many things on and off his resume. If you do that you must expect to suffer the consequences.
