Can I fake experience as a loan underwriter?
I have a degree, but it’s not in business. I have been out of school for 6 years and I am currently looking for a job. I was thinking about being a loan underwriter, since that seems to pay well and there are a lot of job listings in my area for that type of work. Would i be able to fake experience in this? Could I write on my resume that I’ve had several years of previous mortgage and loan underwriting experience and get away with it? I’ll put down my friend’s address and phone number in Chicago, so I’m not worried about getting caught that way. I’m just worried about showing up on the job and being completely clueless as to what I should be doing. I bought a book that is the “encyclopedia” of mortgage underwriting and the company says they are looking for someone with 1-3 years of experience, so should i be good with just a basic knowledge of loan processing?
Are any companies hiring or doing well? Id be interested in a loan officer or underwriter position
