over exaggerating on a job application may get you the job, but you will certainly have difficulty in keeping that job since you do not have the skills or requirements for the job. It is also wrong and a waste of time because someone who is qualified for the job can't get it because of you, and you will more than likely be fired for your lackluster performance.

Problems you would cause if you exaggerate on a application, you really just lying about what you are capable of offering the company that is considering hiring you . You would be waisting the company time because you're not capable of doing what that company is looking for.
