This is purely a hypothetical situation...but I need an objective answer free of any morality.
Say, a person is applying to. For the summer between Jr and Sr years, he/she had an internship that was completely irrelevant to consulting or even business (think researching, architect shadowing, whatever). If this person were to lie on their resume and write something else such as an amazing volunteering experience and had references to back it up, would he/she be able to get through? Is there any way of getting caught, by say, checking work history through social security number or anything?
For the sake of argument, assume that rest of the resume has your typical leadership/involvement EC's.
