I am a 2015 pass-out and I have been working for a company for the past 2 years. Before that I worked in a company in which I got selected on campus(as a fresher) for 11 months. I had to abscond from that company for some genuine personal reasons. 9 months after my absconding I got an opportunity in the company as a fresher again in which I am currently working. Now I am planning to switch my job but I am not knowing whether to add that absconding experience in the resume. If I add, that reason was genuine and I can explain to the HR. But need your suggestion if I can add. If not how can I cover that gap in my career when asked in the interview?

I would suggest better your present your first employment details in the resume. You claim that due to some genuine reasons you had absconded.
If you are not showing your first employment details then there will be a gap of 11 months + 9 months, total 1.8 years after your graduation.

Hi Lakshminarayanan,
Thank you for your information. I would like to add a point here. I would add my previous experience in my resume. In that case, can I claim my total experience as 2 years 11 months when applying for jobs and try for the same level jobs?

i think now a days Human resources managers have time to listen to reasons which does not bother at all for them. i think absconding from an employer will definitely effect your interview and might feel that you does not have stability. i suggest you not to show your company which you have been absconding

You can show your experience of past employer, if you have experience/relive letter. You will be in problem if the present employer asked you to submit the record.

I think it's better to be honest, so feel free to add your experience. You can turn everything into an advantage, everything depends on you.

Hi There,
Here are my views. You really should show your experience and let the HR know at the time of interview only. Nowadays all employments are subject to verification. If they find it later, you will be in trouble for sure.
HRs are humans only and they understand the genuine reasons. Go for it and tell the truth.

If the reason for absconding is genuine, you have an option where you can appeal against the dismissal at your first organisation. In the inquiry that follows if it is established that the reason for genuine, by the company then they shall settle for a notice period recovery and release your relieving letter. This way you can put the experience as valid in your resume.
When an employee absconds, the company can only dismiss the employee, not terminate her/him because the exit decision has been taken ex-parte or in the absence of the employee in the company inquiry. So, at any point of time the employee can appeal for a reversal of the dismissal on the grounds that she/he was not part of the inquiry.
But this should be done only if you are fully convinced that your reason for absconding is totally justified. If not, it's better not to mention the experience in your resume. As the gap is right after your education you can always say that you were preparing to proceed for higher studies and therefore studying for entrance exams. Lots of students do this where they skip a year to write a series of entrance exams to prestigious universities. Later they change their minds and proceed for immediate employment.

First absconding is not good practice in any one company.
for that whatever reason for abscond, you need to tell honest reason for that.
if your reason really genuine, the interviewer will accept.

I joined as a fresher in a company for 3 months. After 3 months I left the company due to problem with Team Leader. Can I add this experience in my CV . If yes how would I comprehend about this during interview

Hi Lakshminarayanan
Thanks for the information. But no HR that I contacted seems to have humanity. After seeing this, I got calls from few company HR's, where I lost a confirmed offer during BGV even though I had explained them my story several times since the beginning and many of them are not willing to take an interview at least and some are not even willing to listen why I had to take that step. So I have decided to take out that experience from my resume and learnt something from this experience that it is better to hide things than to be real.
I would also like to add one point that you seem to be very honest but now-a-days many(not all) HR's are not for resource management but to force the company policies on Employees irrespective of their situation.

After BG checks, some HRs may not consider the gap experience because of lack of document evidence.
In my case, I initially worked for a small company during recession (2008), and quit after 1.5 years. Then I worked another small but reputed company for 5 years.
Later when I got selected in HCL interview, after BG check, HR told me that my first company’s 1.5 year experience will not be considered since its information is not available with NASSCOM (1st small company got closed after some years). So HR only considered my 5 years as my total experience, and not 6.5 years, and salary negotiation happened accordingly.

First of all why to abscond ???? You have your rights to say properly to leave any company??
Also a good attitude. as far as experience concerned, you can mention very well.

For example, on our cricket news project stumped.app, a HR-specialist will carefully interview each applicant. Perhaps you just have not found a company that will appreciate you.

This is absurd.Candidates who are qualified enough to understand what it means to be absconded.
No company would accept such behavour. There is aalways a procedure to leave the company.
However there can be reasons to abscond too but that period of absence is not an expdrience.Hence not adbisable to mention in CV.
