When you are talking about adding experience in your CV, you must understand that the experience that you show on your CV should be actual work experience. Do not falsify information, you will get caught in the background check stage of recruitment, and that is a serious crime that could lead to the organization not only rejecting your CV, but also warning other prospective employers about your misdemeanor. Every organization with a reputation in the market today does a stringent background check to verify that the information that you present in your CV is accurate and true. When adding experience in your CV, you should split the experience into two categories – the first category is a generalized section where you mention the total number of years you have been working, i.e. Have been employed. This section would contain data about your tenure and experiences in different work places all through your working career. The second category is a specialized section where you mention the total number of years of experience relevant to the industry you are applying for a job in. This section would contain data about your work and experiences in organizations that are from the same domain as the one where you have applied for currently. This makes it easier for the organization to slot you based on their requirement.
