Think about it – if you go wrong in an interview with one company’s hiring manager, then that’s one company you probably won’t have much success with in the future.
You need to be highly familiar with your CV so you can instantly remember your responsibilities and achievements in a role.
Honesty with your recruiter builds trust in the relationship, which will help us feel comfortable about representing you – and we tend to find out if you’ve been economical with the truth. There’s no problem with being unavailable, but it’s important for recruiters to be in the know so you’re not being put forward for interviews that you can’t attend.
It’s understandable to want to present the best possible version of yourself and your past, but it’s more important to trust your recruiter from the start, even with the mistakes, and let us find the best way to guide you. It doesn’t help anyone – you, your recruiter or potential employers – if you don’t communicate.
There’s no need to lie about gaps in your CV or short tenures.
People make mistakes in their career, take breaks, go on parental leave, and return to study all the time.
