Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Can an employer view your work history?

    I left out a job on my CV as it was working in the adult entertainment industry a few years ago and extended the date of another job to cover the gap, can an employer view your work history and see where you worked and for how long? The job I applied for seems to do some enhanced checks.

    no but they could speak with a previous employer whos date you extended and they could say "they finished 6 months before" etc thus realising you were lying.

      i'd be really careful with covering your back if you have to have CRB checks, it depends on how much you think mentioning that job will affect your chances. but if for example they want a full checkable history then you can't have any gaps, and the old employer might not be able to say that you worked there for longer than you really did.
      I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.

        So will a CRB reveal work history as well as any criminal convictions, which is what I thought it just checked.

            I see there are lots of agencies out there that can verify work history so maybe I will add my old employer but try to word it carefully.

              Don't worry too much about it. The CRB check has nothing to do with your employment history (unless you commited a crime against your employer!). You need to be able to provide them with a 10-year(?) history of home addresses with no unexplained gaps, but they don't (as far as I remember) ask you for previous employment details. Agencies have to have your permission to contact previous employers, so would not do so unless you are asking a particular employer for a reference.

              Therefore, if you ask the employer whose employment you extended for a reference, the 'fraud' will quickly come to light.
