Hi? I'm in a recuitment process for an associate position in Wealth Management for UBS. I've had two interviews so far, I appear to be in the final stage and everything is looking good so far. However, I just noticed that the Resume that I submitted contains an error.  In the last position that I worked for 8 months, I incorrectly  added 3 more months to this experience. I'm unsure whether I should notify this mistake to UBS or just let it pass. I have almost 6 years of experience and I don't know if this would be meaningfull but I don't want to look like I'm trying to deceive the Company on anything but I'm afraid about how they would take it If I inform them at this stage in the process. I have just been adviced that a 3rd party company will contact me to conduct the background check. Thanks in Advance to any feedback

I remember when I submitted my resume, I realized that it had a spelling error on it. Luckily it was from when I was a bank teller in college, and I don’t believe they even looked at that section.

The sentence was unfortunate too “Performed finacial trasnactions with an emphasis on accuracy” LOL.

I wouldn’t worry about it, the background check doesn’t really care about the resume you handed a hiring manager at one point.

Nothing to sweat. Just point it out to them right away and when you do your registrations be sure the information is correct.

Tell them about the mistake and proved them the corrected one and assuring all the information shared is genuine.
