Can I say I worked at a company 4 months instead of 3? To me the month makes a difference. Thoughts? Legal issues?

You can go by your LinkedIn time as a rule of thumb (it rounds up by a month), but curious why you think it makes a difference?

No legal issues. But what did you learn in the last 30 days that you didn’t figure out in the first 90?

Are you rounding it up? If you started mid Jan and finished mid April, I'd still put that as four months on the CV...

There is literally no difference between 3 and 4 months.
None.
In a few years, you won't even list that stint on your resume.

Lay off

That’s why. I want to make it seem more legit

6 months would be nice, but seems too far of a stretch

My prior two firms had me sign some form just saying they could check, but I have no idea if they ever actually did.

All convictions were fully disclosed to the bar who approved me on C&F (after a long awkward meeting discussing everything)
