Soft Skill Trainer / Hr Consultant - India
Senior Consultant (security)
+2 Others


I did join a BPO in Pune as a Sr .technical support agent in 2007 with fake experience from a friends cybercafé, as suggested by a consultant, who provided the lead to this job. ( 2004 to 2006 )

Initially, I never had an aim to be a part of this sector in IT, but later with experience I found it very interesting & competitive.

Average in academics but passionate about results & competition, I continued to grow up levels in the same organization & now manage a team of over 100 people as a production assurance manager.

Yes, I found a job with this fake exp but also gifted myself continuous nerve wrecking disease of being anxious all the time worrying about BV failures in the same org ( random checks ). I hate this feeling!

With the anxiety of not having a job at all due to potential BV issues, I declined offers from 2 IT majors in the last 2 years, considering that BV will not go through. I considered that the right decision with BV limitations.

Last year I got to know that the cybercafé was shutdown ( 2013 ). Although the owner is aware of the complexities of BV, he has agreed to help.

In the current situation, the maturity of the IT sector is such that if I don't twist the particulars, I wont sustain. But the guilt is insane. I am married with a kid and seriously had no clue that this move can prove out to be so detrimental.

I want to get rid of this fake experience from my profile. My understanding is that its too late & nothing can be done as most of the organizations are moving to redundant NSR BV & my previous will be verified anyway.

I know its "check" situation for now may be & some day it might eventually result in "check-mate"( hoping never)

What should I do differently to get rid of this situation? Should I keep my fingers crossed - My Current state ?

Would removing this from my resume help OR create more troubles? Will having it be okay as long as the BV is managed by the café owner ?

I am absolutely in a bizarre state & need some advise.

When I was hired in the current organization ( 7* years plus here ) , I was not hired at a L1 level but L2 because of the fake experience. They only hired L2s that time.
Now, the IT majors insist on NSR.
There are questions on what designation did I join..And here lies the catch!
If I mention L1 , it will be a no-no from my current organization whenever the BV is conducted because I joined at L2 ; If I mention L2, It will automatically involve previous experience in the picture, which is fake & I want to get rid of..

Now that your job is somewhat stable, only now you are feeling guilty ! Perhaps you would have had anxiety pangs, the fear of getting caught, but still remorseless. Just imagine a situation, in your present role, you come across some new joinees, who are going to be sacked due to fake profile or credentials.. What will be your response and reaction like ! You have now become a victim of your own fear.......Very difficult to get rid of it... You cannot erase it, unfortunately, from your mind and heart... Learn to live with the guilty feeling... that is the only solution !

I know lot many persons di pad their resume initially and later on get into your situation. Perhaps you may consider joining a start up or create a start up on your own and become your own boss or at the leasr become a partner depending upon your financial situation. Hope it helps.

First of all, if you have to do the verification from the ex-employer of your new joinee , that itself proofs the genuineness of his having worked there in the capacity which is surely one of the factors you have selected him for.That covers his education,experience ,criminal background.The ex-employer certainly would'nt have engaged him for say one year or more otherwise.As far as the remuneration is concerned, what if he's paid more than what you are paying?
All this verification process suggested about writing to universities, speaking to neighbours, getting his bank statement posing as a loan agent etc is quite intrusive and underhand.Unless it is for crucial positions involving perhaps security of the nation :-)
In a private sector firm,You need a performer and thats the bottom line, why all the detective role.Talent as it is is scarce.
