What healthcare consulting firms do employment verification? I was fired at my last firm in Sept and just took some time off working full time (did freelancing) Just now getting back into the job hunt

Is this a serious question? No you should not say you’re still at your old firm that you haven’t been at for 5 months.

And wondering if I should say if I am still at my old firm. I am looking to get back into revenue cycle work.

I mean I wouldn’t outright lie about your current employment, but certainly a bold move.

The one thing companies will do is call to verify start and end dates. It’s one of the only things they can ask about without risking being sued.

Please don’t give false information. You can say you took some personal time off

Come on now. You’re not like enhancing a title from like “Consultant” to “Energy Sector Consultant”. You’re literally lying about employment dates. They will find out. Don’t do it.

They also can use a a site for verification that shows all your employers. Especially if they ask you disclose for x amount of years.

Also...we all are focused on the resume lying aspect...but are you trying to avoid discussing why you left? And were you laid off or fired?

Say you left to pursue going out on your own but you don’t feel entrepreneurship is quite right for you just yet after giving it a half year trial run, however what you learned working for yourself has provided you with amazing experience you can now bring back to a firm. Anything can be spun to be positive without having to lie. Get creative people.

Or just say you did freelancing...that’s a normal thing now.

Most companies use third party verifiers that don’t state if you were fired. Call your former employer’s HR and ask them what info they give out (you’d be surprised what they say)
