I have a job offer from a great company due to start in two weeks, and they recently asked me to authorize a background check with Sterling.
I did, and the only information they required was my address, full name, SSN, etc.
I never had to fill out previous job history, etc.
Do you think they will still verify my previous job history going off my resume, by any chance?
I ask because I have a couple "contract"/freelance positions on there. One says "TEMP POSITION" but doesn't say who my staffing agency is (not trying to deceive, just a (maybe?) careless omission). T
The other doesn't mention that I was a 1099 freelance contractor; it was a very informal relationship that started out as a great unpaid internship, morphed into me doing free work and letting me use a better job title to make up for it, then turned into getting paid as a freelancer via 1099 when I left the internship. I put it down as one position.
I had a great relationship with this place and I'm sure they would be happy to verify my side of the story.
I guess I can just clear it up should anything arise, I just don't want it to look like I was hiding these facts and trying to fluff my resume.
(I personally don't think it's anyone's business whether I was paid or not, via 1099 or W2).
