Hi All,

I joined Company A 6 months back and resigned within 15 days for joining Company B. The reason I gave for resigning Company A was abroad higher studies which was totally fake. I was not able to serve the notice period, hence paid then 66k INR before the last working day and got the full and final release letter (I did not absconded). Both Company A and Company B are based MNC's, earlier one is US based and the latter one is India based.

I am not happy with the opportunities I am getting in Company B , hence planning to resign it and attend an interview in Company A again (we don't have much option in my hometown, hence opting for Company A again).

Below are some of the queries I have:

1) I did not absconded my job in Company A during my short tenure of 15 days with them, I paid them the entire fine amount before leaving the company. Will I be able to apply and join them again? The only worry I have is does Company A have any internal policies which might stop me for the re-hire since I quit within 15 days?

2) I am planning to inform them in advance during the interview itself that I was with them for 15 days in my previous tenure with Company A (I don't like to hide anything from my employer) - Is this a correct decision? Or, I should hide the same?

3) Last time the reason I gave for resigning was abroad higher studies which was totally fake. How to deal with this when the HR asks me on this? Need some solid reasons tackle this - Please suggest.

4) HR might ask that I joined Company B immediately after resigning Company A which means the reason I gave for my last resignation (i.e. abroad higher studies) was fake - How to deal with this?

Please advice, its really urgent for me.

First of all, don't resign from Company B without an offer letter in hand from somewhere else. You have a job now. Why would you want to risk not having one at all? Many people look for a new job while keeping their current job.

You aren't likely to be able to hide this. Big companies keep good records. Why should company A want you? They wasted money bringing you on and you left in under a month under dubious circumstances. Even if your excuse of higher studies was true, that wasn't fair to the company. Why would you accept an offer if you were planning on proceeding with your education? Even though you paid the fine, they probably lost money and opportunity costs with you.

Also, this was less than a year ago. Many companies have a rule that says you can't interview twice within a certain time period. You might not be able to interview at Company A even if you didn't create a bigger problem for yourself. Which brings us to your potentially short length of tenure at Company B. Many people look down on resumes that have jobs lasting under a year. You might want to stick it out at Company B to get past that.

Nobody is going to be able to give you a good answer for #3 and #4. You lied and now it is biting you. That's the consequence for lying.

I think you are better off staying at Company B or looking for a third company.
