I have a friend who went through an academy and got picked up by a local agency and he had to tell a couple lies to do that. So hes advised me to lie about certain things also but I dont feel good about that because its lying, and if it were to be discovered later i would surely get canned.
    Would the recruiter be appreciative of my upfront honesty is discussing things or would it just be self incrimination and my app get disregarded?
    I'd be very wary of keeping company with a person who lied to get hired. He may be the rare individual who pulls that off, but there's always a better than average chance he'll be found out. In most agencies, that's an automatic dismissal. Even Civil Service Departments. Not knowing what's in your background, it's difficult to advise you in depth. I suggest you look closely at the requirements of any agency which interests you. Examine the requirements honestly against your background, and see if you even qualify. Certainly, you could speak to a Recruiter to see if it's worth your time, and the Department's for you to apply. I wouldn't even consider lying. Not for one nano second. Should you attempt it, you'll have about a 99.9% chance of being discovered. That happens, you're toast.
