Well firstly, you do have the option to not lie, and to find a job that you are actually qualified for, based on your skills and real experience. That is always an option. 

Secondly, there are volunteer opportunities that don’t require you to even leave your home. So instead of putting energy into lying and taking credit for other people’s work, put your energy into those opportunities.

rainingteadrops :  Wait, so what kind of volunteer experience do you want to lie about that you *can* actually do?  You know they’ll want to know the organizations that you volunteered for, and places hold records of their volunteers.

rainingteadrops :  Regarding volunteer experience, think outside the box. For instance, I’ve done some pro-bono writing and editing for a couple nonprofits. If you do some digging (check Idealist), you could probably find a nonprofit that would love to have a volutneer do some graphic design work for them!

Instead of lying about experience, focus on skills in your resume instead of just your jobs (though definitely list those). What skills are transferable to the new field? Just because it’s a different title or field doesn’t mean you don’t have some of the skills or abilities they are looking for.

rainingteadrops :  Im sorry about your mom

What is this family loss that left you with all the bills if it’s not your parent? Im confused why you have this financial burden

Where do you live? Graphic design is a sought after skill in any major city.. can you move into a bigger city? there is alot better public transporaiton that wouldnt require a car for you

I’ve seen more than one person who lied on their resume get fired when the lie was discovered, even 1-2 years later.
