Hello ranchers,

I have a query regarding background check in Indian MNC's.

One of my friend worked in a small company 4 years back.He has all the documents(viz. offer letter,releiving order etc)
but the issue is the company no longer exists.

Also in his releiving order, there is no employee id mentioned. He is really worried about his future.

Now, i also have some queries with respect to the above situation.

1. What a candidate should do if any of his former company is currently closed?
(Reduce the relevant experience or inform the details to the prospective employer?)
2. A releiving order should normally have employee id mentioned isn't it? What if its not there?
(Is this a real problem?)

I invite true answers preferably from people who are working in HR department's of Indian MNC's.

As far as my friend's case is concerned, i told him to consider small companies or else reduce the relevant exp as i could
not think of any other way.

Please give your suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

Raghu

As long as the details are valid, why should he be worried ? There are many companies that went down during the recession. I remember another thread in this forum that discusses the same thing.

Why would you reduce the relevant experience? Your friend still has the experience and did the work. I would indicate the company no longer exists. Granted, they may not be able to prove he worked there. But he still did and presumably learned something while there.

Hi all,

Thanks for your replies !

But, still many Indian service companies view prospective candidates with a suspicous eye if their past companies is/are closed even though

its true.
