I recently received an offer from BCG am about to go through background checks.
In looking at my resume, I realised I missed something:
I joined a company in Jan 2014, but got promoted internally after 5 months. On my resume I only listed the second role (ie the one I was promoted to) for the 2.5 year slot in my resume. I think I did this just to save space! Wasn't thinking about background checks when writing it, and I guess a quick promotion isn't a bad look anyway.
I am happy to be upfront with BCG about it, but wondered if it's the kind of thing that would be an issue to them?
