Hi there, chances are your work experience has given you some valuable tools (customer service, de-escalating tense situations, etc.) that are currently needed by many employers. With this, focus on your strengths and where you see weaknesses, learn how improve those skill sets instead of making up experiences. Even if offered the position, the majority of employers would rescind their offer after the employment and educational verifications didn't match what you originally stated.
Best of luck in your job search!
