I referred a friend to a position in my company. When HR asked me how I know him, I told them that he was my co-worker in a previous company. However, I later came to know that during the interview, he(my friend) told them that he was my friend during college.
- We worked for same company but in his resume he didn't mention that company but some other company name he worked later.
- He is not my college friend this can be identified by checking our resumes
- My present company accepted him.
Will this contradiction affect my career in the company, and how do I handle this situation?
