Uh oh. Not a good idea to simply "omit" a job from your resume. When you get a new job' date=' they will have to run a full background check (Federal requirement). This will turn up any job in which you received a paycheck (with FICA deductions), no matter how brief it was. If your application does not match your background check, this is considered falsification of your application and your job offer can just go "poof".[/quote']Taken from HouTx's informative post here.I currently have a job as a nurse but I'd like to call it a dead end (P)RN job. Pay is sub par to my worth as a Licensed Registered Professional Nurse but they're the only one hiring new grad AAS in NY Metro.Ever since they let us know on day 1 that they won't give us a great recommendation but will actually make sure to make it bad unless we reach that 1 yr employment, they gotta suck that blood dry right. Hey I understand it is a business and so am I, I took the executive decision of "omitting" them in my resume until that yr mark! Yes I will continue my search as a new grad which is how I think will employers see it anyway?!Have you ever done it for x reasons? Is omitting a job from a resume a good or bad idea?
