I told 2 lies to a software company in Bangalore :

1. I continued to work for 6 working days in my previous organization (during odd times) even after joining this company, but lied that my last day was already over.

2. In my resume and also while declaring my previous employments, I had combined my first 3 jobs into 1 (I have had 5 jobs before joining this one), and also showed a higher designation at this combined job (so as to suite the now longer tenure), since many companies rejected me for being a job hopper.

Now they are asking for documents supporting my claim, for submitting to an external background verification agency. Even if I forge the documents to change the last working dates and designation, the background verification will find it out.

It seems like my best bet is to confess my lies to the HR department and produce the actual documents, and hope they forgive. But I'm worried my higher-ups will always remember this, and may affect career growth in the company. Only other alternative is for me to resign myself. Any thoughts?
I have no idea, why one doesn’t want to struggle hard to shine in their career....... With profound regards
I really don't know what to say......bro you had made coffin for your self.
I believe truth is dare...and when you speak truth then you have to pay price but truth give you peace and satisfaction.
I know i had not reverted to your question because frankly at present i don't have any soln.
First of all, you have done such a mistake that no one can tolerate and will punish you.
See every one want to excel their career in term of Money and designation, but no one can do like this,
we can understand if freshers do not get job, they try to put some false experience in their resume and searching for experience job.
i can understand, how do we feel bad when we don't have any job after completing the professional course from reputed universality
forget to go to HR department and show your honesty cause if you go there they will think (Again he is laying) so better option is, be calm and concentrate on your work, give your details as per your employment Data which was shown during the interview time.
and start searching a good job with true details.
Honesty is the key to success.
But so stupid that if the same person fakes experience he gets job, how come HR believes the experience letter but not the person, this makes more and more people encourage to fake experience, because there have been examples of where 2 freshers person of same calibre attend interview in same company , same HR , but the one who fakes exp is selected , this faking of experience will only stop when HR will really concentrate on the employee and not on his certificates.
Now comming to your problem a solution is there, my advice to fakers has always been this if you fake fake it 100% good , and let it not be a habit, because it is not good to be 100% true like harishchandra..
Since when ur working in preset company?
I did not exactly fake experience, I modified details.
I told the HR lady, she was angry, and now I'm waiting for the axe to fall. I'm unable to concentrate at work.
Now I realize I could have provided the correct details in the background verification form. Since I had already lied on resume and during interviews, I kept it consistent there. I was afraid they might cross check with the technical panel that interviewed me. Now I feel that was a bit far-fetched imagination, as these verifications are purely handled by HR.
I feel guilty for not being clever enough.
Yeah you are not at all clever, thats why always before misrepresenting data you should take professional guidance.
Hi About to be cought,
By telling the truth you had done your parts... now its upto management to take call. Wish you best of luck...pls be prepare and search new job but this time with honesty.
If it had been my company i will think to give you 2nd chance.......
After I emailed the HR lady the correct details of employment history, she did not even bother to ask for the supporting documents anymore for sending to the external verification agency. They did not even call me into a room and demand why I had lied. Pregnant silence indeed. Clearly she must have discussed with her boss to fire me without bothering to use the external agency anymore.
