Have a background check coming up for PE and a MBB. There's a title discrepancy between what I've stated (Associate) and what is in HR's records (intern) for my most recent work experience...PLEASE kindly read the context below because it'll be helpful to know as I narrate this:
After grad school, I joined a new independent sponsor (part of a bigger regional bank)...New team didnt have much leeway with the upper mgmt (CEO) and had to close a deal in order for my internship to convert to full-time offer. I was told by senior mgmt this would be done in 2 months but that stretched onto 10 months and the partners didn't deliver. barely getting by the salary, I finally quit in June...that said the partners had very strong glowing things to say about me especially the head and were deeply apologetic that they couldnt get shit done in my timeline (i had a visa issue states side).
I may be getting a PE offer soon and i have Associate mentioned on my resume (instead of intern
When Background agency calls HR, prior to the call (when they ask me for HR contact), should i shoot the background check agency a quick note, "hey my official title will state intern. But FYI that would not giving the fairest impression as team was newly formed so either this worked for all of us or if not we left (partners were barely paying themselves)...in reality I was acting as a full Associate and was offered full-time by partners various time contingent upon a successful fund raise upon which i had no control. if you'd like to verify this pls call partner xxxx"...what do you guys think??? OR should I call HR up and tell them to confirm my Associate (very hard and beckoning someone to do something unethical)? OR LAST, see if the partner can just verify my employment title and dates??
Please share some thoughts and you think this is a big deal.
