In Interview, Mention Job Omitted from Resume


Troy writes:
I quit my most recent job in October and have an interview for a new company this week. I actully hve been working at another company since October but it’s not relevant to the current interview. I didn’t list it on my resume. Do you think this is ok and if they do a background check will they see a current employer? Help!


The Career Doctor responds:
The employer will definitely learn of the non-relevant job in a background check. A resume is not a legal document like an application but it would still be wise to mention the other job in the interview.
