Lying on your resume or in a job interview is usually frowned upon, but according to a life coach, lying when answering this one popular interview question might be your smartest move — and the masses seem to agree.

Career coach Tashe Gray goes viral after giving viewers rather unorthodox advice to “lie professionally” when asked during a job interview, “Tell me about an obstacle you encountered and how you overcome it”.

“Just lie. They can’t verify the story in any way. All you have to do, number one, the obstacle you mention, you have to make sure it’s a juicy one,” Gray says. “Make sure it’s a really interesting obstacle. Number two, speak clearly. Don’t stumble, you need to know the words you’re going to say before you say them.”

The video, which now has more than 1.3 million views, garnered surprisingly positive response from the majority of viewers who admitted that they often lie during interviews to make themselves look fitter for the specific role they’re playing.

“Practice different scenarios,” advised one user. “Incorporate the company’s values ​​into the story as well.”

“I think of a real story, discuss the steps I took to overcome and add a lie if I need to to make it juicy or if I need to sound like I had more control,” another explained.

It seems that commentators are not alone. Recent data from checkster shows that as many as 78% of job applicants have or considered lying at some point in the application process.

To lie or not to lie? That’s at the job seeker’s discretion, but it’s safe to say that honesty is the safest policy when it comes to talking to a potential prospective employer.
