This question already has an answer here:

I was hired by a new employer about 3 months ago. During the process, I submitted a resume multiple times, had an interview, and all my references were called.

On my resume, I mistakenly had a part-time contracting job listed for 2013-2015. However, the correct date was 2014-2016. During the interviews and communications with the pertinent references, the correct date range was discussed and it was never identified that my resume was wrong.

Recently, my employer asked me to resubmit my resume in a different format. During the process of updating and corrected my resume, I realized my mistake.

As I resubmit my resume, should I notify my employer about the incorrect information?

This was a mistake and not a lie. The company would have hired you anyway. Therefore bringing it up now will either be ignored or cause an unnecessary distraction for someone. Correct the mistake in the new resume and leave it at that.

This assumes you don’t work in an industry that puts a very high bar on honesty and is suspicious by nature. For example, secret government work or financial oversight. In that case it is better to reveal everything.

what's your interest
