do background checks verify your resume?
asking for a friend who stupidly lied on his resume. His resume shows he still works at company X but he has been unemployed for 6 months.
he finally got a good sde2 offer (FAANG) but now has to do a background check. the background check company asks to fill out a separate form detailing work history that they then validate.
if he is truthful on the background check form and accurately lists his experience will he be ok? or will they also go back and cross check that with his pdf version of resume?
