MBB Background check in Western European offices?

Dear all,

Does anyone know whether MBB carries out background checks in Western European offices? Asking because - whilst preparing the fit questions for my second round interviews - in noticed a small error on my CV (dates of internship off by a month, which makes it looks like my internship was 3 months when it was in fact 2). Should I contact HR to notify them of this error beforehand, or is there not even a background check in place either way?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

They do the background check, but the purpose of it is completely different. They are looking for any violations if you hold the equity in any company. The dates don't matter

Hi,

Background checks are usually not conducted even after they extend a job offer to the candidates (and definitely not during the CV screening process). Even if they do, the mistake you made in your CV is quite minor to make a difference. What I can advise is that if you receive the job offer, you can notify HR about this mistake, but again it will not make a difference.

Hi Anonymous,

I agree with Deniz, you can notify to HR in case of an offer, the mistake is really minor so not an issue in terms of the check.

When you do a background check you are usually required to re-enter all of the information into a form sent by the 3rd party vendor that does the check. Just enter the correct dates when they send that form to you
