I am planning to apply for position of a Software developer in EU and New Zealand. I am from India and have been working with start-ups only. I have a total experience of 2.5 years, 1.5 years(Part-time), 8 months Full time with another company X and it's been 5 months at my current company Y.
I had a really horrible experience at company X and left at a really bad node. Now, since I am going to be directing a lot of time and energy in trying to find a position overseas, should I take off my experience of 8 months from my CV? I don't want to do it since I was working on a really challenging project there on a real nice technology. But I am just SURE that if the company goes out for a background check, company X will try its best to ruin it for me (Totally!).
Would I be asked for any specific information before running any background checks? I don't even want company X to get to know anything about my interest in a position overseas.
In nut shell: I want to use the experience but don't want a BG Check from company X.What is the best way out?
Note: . 1. I don't have an experience letter from Company X. Can produce bank statements and confirmation letter though.
- No payslips since they don't give it to anybody EVER no matter how many times you may ask. (That may come as a surprise but startups do work that way sometimes).
