Maybe I'm the only one here who absolutely hates cocky people but anyways I just thought mention somewhat of a rant. A classmate of mine was talking about how he has recruiters calling him all the time, etc. So I asked in a non-confrontational way if I could see his resume so I could know more of what to put. In work experience he put he's been a PM for 8 years (He's 20 mind you) so I asked him more about it and says he usesedge lol. I asked how much AUM ballpark figure he has because I figured someone being that bold would be upfront and his response was "I would never disclose info on behalf of my shareholders" I then responded with "oh really what licenses do you have? 7? 63? 65?"
He then said "Uh... um.... actually I just use whatever money my dad gives me." I thought I'd share and will ask to those of you who look at resumes a lot: What's a funny resume you've seen where you already knew they were full of shit? Or what is common thing people shouldn't lie about but do in their resume? I would think what he put isn't all too uncommon.
