Hi, I have almost 8 years of exp. In my last org i worked for four years and now jobless. I am updating resumes continuously with no success. Can I fake my exp to show that i m still working in my last org. I will manipulate my relieving letter accordingly.

Dear Suman,
You can fake on CV and may be even on Letters, but will not the background verification revel everything and for this silly mistake you may lose a very good company and may be get black listed. Don't ever fake any resumes or experience.

I had already given my feedback on a similar querry raised by one anonymous colleague in this forum.
My dear friend, there is no shortcut for climbing career ladder. You have to climb step by step.
Similarly, job aspiring candidate should not only smart (or even oversmart??) but he should be
diligent, sincere, honest and a man of integrity. These are some basic traits, every employer is
looking from their people.
So, creating any fake document will ultimately lead to spoiling your career.
Give honest reports in your CV. If you are jobless now, please mention the same without any
Good luck!
Thanking you

Also, read this thread currently on a similar subject :
Still, I am curious as to WHY the OP concludes being " jobless" is the reason he is not being successful in his search presently . What are the views of people here - if two persons are equally suited and interested in a Job , one unemployed presently and the other employed , what would be the preference of decision makers in you organization ? And why ?
Views ?

I strongly agree with Mr.P.K.Nair, The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. Some people think that the truth can be hidden with a little cover-up like manipulating documents. My sincere advise is don't spoil your career with these silly things.

I will agree with all the seniors bt this is also realty that even if a person hav good experience but due to some circumstances he/she has to take a gap for 1-2years. No one consider them let alone call for interview. These all things make candidate forge their cv.

I will request others to weigh in on what Priyajiya66 says...do you recall instances where your organization has taken on board someone unemployed at the time ? What factors went into that decision?
We had a case about 6 years ago when we proposed a Safety Engineer at the moment unemployed to an Auto major since we felt he was a good fit. He was hired at a salary higher than what he drew last since that was per the company's structure.
But that is the only case I recall. Although we have had several interviews since we have no hesitation in proposing unemployed people if other factors indicate a good fit.

Hi, That's the last thing one should ever do. Although i have come across many a cases of faking Payslips for hefty salary hike during transitions. And even got away with that for what ever reasons. Even i have seen in our very own HR fraternity of faking resumes to cover up the gaps. Could easily manage because of old boys ( Buddies ) circuit.
But i will never recommend such things. Be honest and straight. Fight for your dignity and honor. You must have proper justification. No need to be ashamed. Try hard. I request someone from the group to help Suman with an opening possibly.
All the best.
Warm Regards,

Hello Sumanbaner,
While concurring with all the members to desist from faking your resume, suggest pl mention a few more details to enable the members to give realistic & practical solutions to your situation ['Don't Fake' covers only what NOT to do to handle your problem, while you are looking for what TO DO I guess].
1] What's the career gap you are talking about--better still would be to give clearly the chronology of your career.
2] What's your gender--let that NOT give rise to ANY lopsided ideas now. Quite often the solutions available to one gender may not be available to the other.
3] What's the reason(s) for the gap? Pl be as clear as possible--UNLESS you are frank, everyone in the Forum would begin to make their OWN set of assumptions & the solutions would follow THAT path; and in the end, you won't have a solution that YOU can work on.
4] What's your educational background & sector/domain?
Guess these inputs should be able to lead towards a more practical solution from the members.
All the Best.

Now a days no body is checking whether you are working/worked .
They will see your performance in the current job.
If the work is satisfactory, they will continue in the job, otherwise they will dispense you from service in the probation period.
The probation period will be for this purpose only.

I am associated with an HR Services company which also does background verifications.
Background verifications are done very thoroughly and some of the established companies go many steps ahead to ensure the person they are hiring is the right choice.
So Never, Ever Fake anything in your CV.You might get lucky once or twice,but not every time.
Once the truth comes out you could ruin your entire career.
If the Industry in which you work is small ,The word spreads around fast
A lot of companies are ok with candidates who have taken a sabbatical in their careers ,this could be for family,illness, entrepreneurial pursuit.... could be for anything but no one wants liars
So pls don't do anything which spoils your entire career

I suggest you spin your resume to remove the assignments that shows you’re less committed to your present career goals rather than adding fake experience. Regards, Abhishek HR Manager

Hi All, my problem is that, O started my career with BPO and after working in BPO, my experience has become worthless. I have been trying to shift to day job but in vain. Situation has gone so worse that, I had to leave the job to give priorities to my family which as I was cut off from my family during night shift days.
But now I am unemployed, despite of the fact that I have very good analytical as well as communication skills. I have been excellent in reporting, presentation. I even have experience in software testing which I did in my last organisation. The only thing that I dont possess is a BE Degree. Its been more than a year and I am notgetting hired. being honest, I am not getting opportunity.

What does it mean by Pre and Post Background Verification in TCS? Does it mean a verification which they say Green at present time they can say that red in future?
My first company is closed, don't know how will they verify now or they are already done but I am not hearing any query from them currently, can it happen that they will ask it after I join TCS and then put me on stake by questioning where are Form 16, account statement etc. I am having exp and releasing letter only and that was a very small company of 10-15 people only, even not a PVT LTD company. I worked in that some 8 years ago and after that I have already worked in two Big MNC.
