Ok so I'm filling out these apps and I don't remember how long I've worked at certain jobs, or their phone #s. What do I do? I've been out of work for 5 yrs. I remember the name of the businesses, but I can't seem to remember how long I worked there, or the exact dates. On this application they say they do background checks and I don't want to not get the job, based on me putting what I think I worked. Also, I'm not finding it on Google (that phone #) do I have to fill that out? Its not a starred field that's required or would leaving out the # automatically disqualify me? Someone please help me. I really want this job.

do the best you can with the dates, let them know you couldn't find the number.

Can you get in contact with old bosses? I feel you, I haven't worked for six years and started doing applications. I have two interviews tomorrow!

oh Good luck to you! I don't think I can. The job where I used to work makes verifiers jump through hoops to get former employment information

I think they just call the employer to confirm.

I always put the month and year, I would use ? marks if I wasn't sure of the exact dates. Did you keep any of your old paystubs? Search your email inbox/sent folder for an old resume. Hope you get the job.

PM me the name of the companies and I may be able to find the numbers.

fingers crossed

Thank you I'm going to have to do it that way.
