I am currently an undergrad student. One of the managers I know in a small company in the US let me use their name and say that I remote-interned there. So I added this work history in my resume/cover letter. Now I'm trying to apply to companies with this faked resume/cover letter. Since I don't really have any skills and I am entry level, I might as well just get into a small company as an intern or low position.
1.What are the chances of getting caught? I heard companies do background check but even when I'm an intern/low position?
2.I didnt get CPT since I didnt work in the us at that time. But if i lie that i worked in the us, is there any way for hiring companies will know that I didnt get CPT to work in the us?
To be honest, I want to lie on resume especially when the manager at that company let me do it. But what I want to know is: are hiring companies do background check to verify an intern's background even when hiring companies are just small.
fyi: I'm an international student with F-1 visa
+additional info: so the manager said he can write me a recommendation letter. Is this still dangerous?
