do you have to put all your previous employers? Do they have a way of finding out if you have that you didn't put down?

  • I try to put everything from the past 5 years. If you leave one out that is in the middle somewhere, they may think that you were unemployed during that time. That may or may not matter to them.

  • Most ask for job history around 5 years back. They don't have a surefire way of finding out where and when you worked, but it does help show you are responsible if you have good job history. I would put as much as you can.
