Hi all,

I am currently working in an MNC in chennai for the past 3+ years and i have around 5+ years of experience. I am planning for a change in the next few months.

I worked in two small concerns in chennai before joining this MNC. I was with my first company for 14 months and second company also 14 months.

Now, the problem is my first company is closed as it was a very small concern and they were not able to survive the current recession. But, i have all the documents with me.

Even then, i am worried as to whether this will create a problem during my background verification etc.. if i join companies like Accenture etc. which have a stringent BCC policy.

My friends advised me to reduce my relevant experience to 4+ years and also inform the HR before joining itself.

Also i dont have any official mail from my first company stating why it is closed etc etc..

I am really very much worried as to what to do in this regard

Any suggestions please?

Thanks

That is bad advice. Why should you lower your experience level just because the company shut down ? Since you have all the documents, just explain to the employer about your situation and that the company does not exist anymore.

I agree with Deepak Bala. Why you should worry if your previous company closed. If you have any references from that company just provide them along with your documents. If still your new company wants some more proofs then that is their problem. May be to be safer just inform your new employer before you accept their offer and resign from your current job.
