Can I omit a job from my resume? Will that job still show up in an employment check?

  • If the gap is insignificant or a long time ago - then you can leave it out of your resume. They won’t ‘check’ this in a background check unless it’s high level security clearance work - government/military etc
  • If the job was more than 10 years ago - is it really relevant today? Will the employer be overly concerned about this job? Probably not - so you can leave it out then also!
