A candidate has a break of 1yr after leaving a job due to personal reasons or not getting a job with better prospects after leaving the previous one. But the companies are not considering the persons with break which is making the candidate to make fake certificates to fill the gap.. If the company changes the attitude while screening resumes considering the potential of the candidate and not based on their gaps then this can be reduced..
Moreover the candidates should also understand what they are doing is unethical and it wont help them for a long run.. Instead they can explain the real reason behind their gap and they will get what they deserve.. And can work with out guilt.

Hi Sowmya

You presented a practical scenario and wishful solution.

According to me, any sane HR who sees credible ability in the candidate through his previous work experience and qualifications, will accept a sensible reason for gaps in the employment. When candidate pass such question with ambiguous reasons such as “Personal Reasons” and further does not justify such gaps then they become likely for rejections.

I have come across justified explanations under “Personal Reasons”

Family Relocation with details such as : Husband/wife transferred, married into another city, conscious decision to migrate to another city for better prospects. Etc. HRs must show empathy as per their intelligence to understand the candidate’s situation.

Gaps in employment also provides an opportunity to gauge candidate’s mindset to see how he/she used their time to upgrade their knowledge, seek a job or were just yankee-doodling their leisure time and now bored so seeking jobs.

Under any justification, faking experience is not an ethical suggestion. If an HR is not buying one’s reason for gaps or job change, then either one is not selling well or there is negative issues. Inspite of honest effort if HR is still not buying, then those firms are better let off. Candidate can always demand reason for rejection from HRs. It’s allowed by law in US I don’t know about India ?

Dear Sir,
Work Experience you should mention truly
The organizations generally check about your previous employment and service. In such case,
if proved false, they won't consider your candidature.
In case they gives employment, if proved false, at later date, they will sack you.
Therefore, always be truthful.
