I recently went through the interview process for the position of software engineer. I did pretty good at all the interviews and now got a fairly good job offer, but I am very bothered about a few "exaggerations" I have made in my CV, namely:
- I have mentioned that I have experience with a few technologies that this company is using. Whilst this is completely true, my experience is rather modest (i.e. a few months at most) and I have not mentioned that. However I have provided a full description of all the projects that I have worked on along with the technology stack used, so they still have an overall impression. For the most important technologies used I have listed how many years of experience I have with them.
- I have slightly exaggerated my experience with some technologies they use - i.e. with one of the technologies I have about 4.5 months of experience which I have rounded to "about 1/2 year" and with another one I have 2 years and 10 months which I have rounded to "about 3 years"
- the biggest thing is that I have mentioned as a skill particular framework that is extremely large and I have only used an extremely limited part of it only for a couple of months. I have not mentioned this framework anywhere in the descriptions of the projects I have worked on and was never asked about it in the interview process. I only mentioned it because I was so not acquainted with it that I thought I have actually used everything from it :(.
Does it make sense to mention technologies you have little experience with in your CV (in a way similar to LinkedIn skills)? Is this a lie? Should I be worried / refuse the offer because of this?
