Hi people

I have no one of my prevoius employers to refer my boss left and nobody is referring me. I worked for around 5 and a half years and I dont have reference for 1.5 years. My employer is overseas as well. What do I do?

Also on my resume the jobs title is different than the actual title. Because in my country there were odd job titles which nobody understands here. So Translated them accordingly. Would that matter?

Do amazon contact our reference or the do they contact HR of the company?

It is giving me nerves. Please help me out. Please.

    They asked me for 2-3 references which I provided but they never contacted. Both were from a company I left over 18 months before taking the job

      They contacted your employer, my job is in AWS. Cloud based.

      No they didn’t. I’m very familiar with AWS

    I'm from Canada too. "Accurate Background" is the vendor they use. They call HR to confirm dates of your employments and title. That's about it.

      I was told it'll take 7-10 days average because it's an international check. It might take longer if you lived in different countries too

    They only do a background check through your SSN. They rarely call the previous employers. Mine was done in a day.

    No amazon will not contact your old employers except only to check that you worked there. Will not ask for recommendations
