I would like to ask suggestions regarding my situation. I just got a job offer from a big company. My concern is they're doing background check like credit applications, criminal case, personal information and employment history. I didn't told the recruiter and I didn't state on my resume about the recent previous employer because I only stayed for 4 months and it may affect my future job applications(note: I didn't AWOL, they just end my contract because of personal reasons!!!!). I just told the recruiter that I went vacation for 3 months to justify the gap.
If ever they found out that I didn't declare my recent previous employer, they might rescind the job offer/contract.
Do you have any suggestions?
Should I tell them the truth or not?
Is there any way they'll find out my employment history?
