At some point, you will have to defend your resume. At that point, you must
prove that you have the knowledge that you claim to have. That's easy to do
when you have a honest and truthful resume.
This type of recruiting tactic is shameful. Obviously, the recruiter needs
to make a sale. Don't fall for it.

Subject: What would you do?
I have been corresponding with a recruiting firm about a possible job as a
SharePoint administrator, and they asked me to change my resume. The job
description includes some things that I have never worked with, such as
Infopath. The recruiter asked me to edit my resume to show experience with
about half a dozen things I've never done, to match things in the
description, and email him that new version.
I won't say what I've done or not done - I'm interested in your thoughts
