A quarter of employees are ashamed of their jobs

One worker
in four thinks their job is so boring that they lie about what they do, a
survey shows.

More
than half of those invent jobs that make them sound more interesting.

Made-up
jobs include helicopter pilot, MI6 spy and dolphin trainer.

The
survey of 1,000 people by learndirect, the educational advice line, found most
of the people who lied about their jobs only did so when meeting friends they
had not seen for years.

Others
admitted to fibbing to impress future employers, strangers at dinner parties or
members of the opposite sex.
