I am a recent graduate and I was given an entry level IT job offer by a large corporation not too long ago. They required a recent computer science graduate for the position, I met the requirement and passed their interviews. However on the work-experience section of my resume I mistakenly kept a start date of January 2010 instead of August 2010 for a previous job I had because I got the job while I was on college break and it didn't quickly occur to me that I got the job in the summer holiday, not the winter holiday of that year. This company that just gave me the job offer told me that they usually do background checks and now MY WORRY is that if they contact my previous employment place and they find out that my start date for a previous job on my resume was actually August 2010 not January 2010, the company may not give me the job position anymore?
Please anyone here with suggestions or advice regarding this? Should I tell them about the issue on my resume with the employment start-date before the background check begins? thanks for your responses, I appreciate!
