Can you omit a job from your resume? Will that job still show up in an employment check:

It does depend:

  • 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!
