I'll start by saying I have a computer science degree, and my first job I got was with a consulting firm who offered to train me in the relevant technologies (under contract). I signed the 16 month contract which read, after my training I will be marketed to external clients and go through the Hiring Process looking for C2C contracts.
Unbeknown to me until after I signed the contract and talked with other people who were going through the program I would be Marketed with 5 yrs exp when in reality actually was I fresher.
I have made many connections with recruiters along the way (with them thinking I have 5+ yrs exp). Now that my contract is coming to an end, I will be marketing myself and I don't feel right lying on my resume so now my Resume will look a little different with less years experience.
My Question is, with all the Recruiters I've made contact with should I just forget about them? How can I elegantly handle the situation of sending an "updated" resume, with less yrs experience than the one they have on file? What if I do send that resume, and the company I was under contract is essentially outed, could that effect me negatively?
