I have a major problem. I have been offered a job and was going through the motions of entering reference details after accepting it. But I noticed that one of my past employment dates was wrong. I accidentally entered 2002 instead of 2003 for the start date. So it look as though I started working before my GCSE’s, this job isn’t what I am using as a reference. It’s a Saturday and HR is closed, so I can’t contact them. I’ve sent them an e-mail explaining the situation today. But I am really worried they either
a) think I lied in my original and will withdraw the offer, or
b) made an error and so will withdraw the offer anyway…
I am so worried what with the graduate recruitment the way it is. It was an honest mistake and they have yet to do the background check… what do you think will happen? I am so worried.
