Possible Resume Issue

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 04, 2012 9:06 pm

I don't think this is an issue but want to check with crazy TLSers.

For our OCI, the resume I submitted had my employment history dates incorrect. One job I lengthened my service by 4 months, another I shortened by the same amount. Do I give an updated resume or just run with what I submitted? If it matters, the job I shortened likely is the "better" job on my resume compared to the one I lengthened

OP here.

If I had posted a month ago, I could have fixed the dates before hand. Don't know how I did that.

Thanks for your help

Do not mean to hijack thread, but I made a similar error with my resume. My most recent and more prestigious job, the summer work, has the least info. I had a computer virus on the weekend that the bids were due. Do you think this is something that will play a role? It looks a little awkward since I have more than one bullet point for my previous positions, but only one for the last one.

I think you might want to ask career services cause it might look as if you are lying with the whole month thing.
