Hi,

I am based out of bangalore in India.

I am a java developer working in indian MNC..Due to the lack of projects,my present company trained me for in a tool and am currently working on it.I have total of 4 years experience.2.5 years in java/j2ee and 1.5 years in that tool.The present company is my first company.Since i am interested in java,i have attended the interview outside and cracked it for 4+ years experienced.

My query: I have replaced other 1.5 years of exp on that tool with java in my CV,as i am quite confident in java.
1.Does my next company come to know about this in their back ground verification process.
2.How is back ground verification carried out.Can my present company also reveal the technologies i have worked/projects i was involved?
I am bit worried about it Please share your thoughts.

Are you telling us you misled the new company in your application?

Most companies don't share details. However, it could come out in other ways. Lying isn't a good way to start a new job.

Lot of times we are required to move to different technology,due to the lack of projects in the present company,most common in service based companies.So instead of staying on bench for long time in tough times we opt for it.Although i was working on that tool,i have been constantly updating my skills in java since 1.5 years.I am not faking by showing false experience to them..I will be having all the genuine certificates right from school days till now to the new company.The question is here is of skillsets..Since i had been working in that tool for quite sometime,do they get to know about it in background verification process.Regarding java,i hold good level of expertise to survive in any company and am passionate about it.The question here is about background verification process.Can the companies reveal such information of skill sets of their employees.

Jeanne already said that most companies don't share details. and why do you worry about verification process?
you showed them different project as your current working project? if yes.. Hmmm Ok... It seems you are confident about your java skill. So, dont worry.
and dont repeat it(showing false project as current one) in your feature.

java+some tool(if it is related to java, i.e, use back-end as java etc..) is always big plus.

Thank you.If the tool i had worked was built on java,i could convert my tool exp into java.But the tool is built on dotnet.Since i have the functional knowledge of the system,i could visualize the same functionality being developed in java and updated the same in CV.Like below in my skill set description.

Ideally it should have been like below:
Project : xyz
Technologies used : toolname

I kept the same project name and visualized the same being built in java/j2ee and updated like below :
Project : xyz
Technologies used : Java/j2ee

Since its my first switch,i am not sure how exactly background verification is done.I mean do they check only tenure,salary details ,designation or they also check the technologies currently we are working on.Sorry if the same question is asked repeatedly ..But thanks a lot for the clarification.

As Jeanne said, just stick to the truth and you should be fine.

Visualizing a system on a different platform is not experience in Java. Learning on your own is knowledge but not experience in Java. This site is not going to tell that it is ok to invent experience on your resume.

What's wrong with working on another technology anyway? It is a diverse skills set.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
