I am interviewing for a business development (BD) role and I was an Electronics/Software Engineer before.
The prospective employer notes that most of my recent experience is not relevant (teaching) but is interested in my earlier experience. My previous employer was a major player in the industry and I worked on some BD there. I had left for academia a decade ago and the old company was has been bought out twice in 5 years. It still lives on, but all of my references have left.
The interview with the senior VP went well, and to follow up they wanted a sample of my prior work in market intelligence. I dusted off some old research I had done for the first company and sent it to them, but later I realized that it had included minor bits of sensitive information (e.g old partner names and competitor intelligence like revenues).
All of his information is decades old and there was a non compete when I left for 3 years. I sent it off because I thought it was outdated stuff, but now I think I could get in trouble for it, with either my prior or prospective company. In my eagerness to move forward I neglected to sanitize the document and in hindsight I should have scrambled/blurred names.
Almost all of this info is publicly available, should one search for it regarding revenues,key partners, and time lines. Is there anything I can do to minimize the damage?
