Interview over # 3

Hiring firms take a dim view of resume padding.

Everybody tries to put the most favorable framing on experience but saying or implying you did stuff you didn't is frowned upon.

Governor Palin has been touting the Russian experience - trade negotiations and all that - to indicate her foreign policy chops.

The Associated Press, not known for fact checking or serious investigative reporting for some time now, surprises us when they do it. Martha Mendoza at AP has this to say:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who touts her state's proximity to Russia as part of her foreign policy experience, has not met with Russian leaders or delegations, negotiated any Russian issues or visited the country, according to an Associated Press review of records from the governor's office.

Interview over.
