    • Dilemma
    • Helen wants to move to a new community, and she is applying for a job with a small retail establishment. She is confident that she is fully qualified and will be able to perform well if she gets the job. The employer, however, has advertised for someone with three years of retail experience, and Helen only has two-and-a-half years. She is considering whether to exaggerate slightly on her resume in order to improve her chances of getting the job.
    • Helen asks three friends to offer their advice on what she should do.
    • Henry says, “Go ahead and claim three-and-a-half years of experience; they’re going to be so happy with your work that by the time they check (if they ever do) it won’t matter.
    • Jennifer says, “I’m sure you’ll arrive at the best decision on your own; I’ve always known you to be an honest person.”
    • George says, “It is never all right to lie, even when you are unlikely to get caught and it seems relatively harmless to do so.”

Instructions
Using the ethical memoir from your introductory discussion, compose a paper that describes the moral-ethical dilemma that you encountered and what the outcome of that dilemma was in more detail. This assignment is a revised and extended version of the introductory discussion. Address the following questions:

  • Did you solve the dilemma? If so, how? If not, what were the repercussions or consequences?
  • What would you do differently if faced with the same problem today?
  • What is the importance of good ethics?
  • Why should we be concerned about our actions?

Remember, the dilemma should be detailed with description and dialogue. Regard the questions as prompts, not an ordering of your responses. This is not a Q&A essay, but rather a graceful reflection regarding a difficult ethical dilemma you faced.

Cite the textbook and incorporate outside sources, including citations.
