Also this, right out the gate you are suggesting to lie? I guess you are comparing this to a bluff in poker, only difference being you bluff in poker and get cought you can still play the next hand. You get cought lieing in a career when it comes to credentials etc, good luck finding the next career to attempt. And if you think employers don't inquire to other places you have worked regardless of if you have them down as a reference or not, IMO if I was hireing someone I would be more inclined to contact the companies they didn't give a reference for, as no one is going to provide a contact who will likely give a bad reference.
If I read duggs correctly because sales positions are looked at to have such a high earning potential, lots of people look towards it as a career. Yes lots of people could do very well but no different than poker you will still have the smaller % of people who are at the top of the leaderboard when it comes to sales. Like poker experience is a key aspect in sales not just because you know what your doing, but for sales its because people know who you are and trust you and word of mouth spreads the good name and in 99% of situations I'm sure the high end sales positions are people moving from place to place, like high end poker players that would be crushing on many sites.
In general terms you could apply what it takes to be a great poker player in any job, or career however the motivation is only going to exist if you know eventually "you will move up the stakes", sales definitely does not have any such guarentee (i know poker has no guarentee either but it does reward the work and study put into the game, unlike some careers where it depends on the industry and company etc).
Just my thoughts and an LOL especially considering how not even half way through your post you indicate you can ALWAYS lie (exagerate) on your cv? You could always try bluffing with 27 as well but you will more than likely get cought and lose your BR.
Edit: Also, I hope this isn't going to be another thread that you create and then never come back to comment as I have seen a number of those and IMO its very frustrating for anyone who takes the time to read your post and make a comment. Just thought I would point that out, not to be an ass I have just seen some of your threads like this.
