Can you leave previous jobs off your resume?
Just wondering. I know it's illegal to falsify things on your resume, but is it legal to exclude certain jobs?
of course you can leave jobs off your resume, especially if you don't think they would make a good referral. Many people have different resume's for different types of employment.
Sure...It is a collection of work that you have done and accomplishements, its not like you have to include bad things in the past.
It depends on several factors: At what point in your career did you have the job and how long were you there.
Yes you can leave them off of your resume. You wouldn't want to put down a job where you might get a negative evaluation from. I'm not sure it's honest but it's not illegal.
It's illegal to say things on a resume like you are a doctor or lawyer, real estate agent, policeman, etc. when you are not. Falsifying like saying you have an MBA when you don't, well I don't know that that's illegal, however once found out that you don't have an MBA when you said you did would make people distrust you and you'd lose your job.
It's ok to exclude certain jobs. For instance, perhaps you worked part-time in a restaurant while in high school. No big deal. But, including some jobs shows you are well-rounded. I don't think it would be of any benefit to list every single job you ever had, keep it short and sweet. HR people have a lot to read, and may get bored.
it is not illegal to falsify anything on your resume, far as i know. however if you are caught by employer, probably fired on the spot.
no. because now that there are background checks your social security number shows every job that took taxes out on you. if you leave them off your prospective employer will wonder why you didn't want them to know about it.
