Job date mistake in an application
I spnt ages on an application, submitted it then realised I made a mistake with date of when I started my current job. I started at the start of the year but said i started in 2015. Reason this happened is because I previously applied to this organisation before I had my current job and it had my job history so I moved the past jobs down but forgot to change the start date of my current job when I entered that in. I've emailed HR and the hiring manager to tell them it's a mistake and asked if I can amend it but is this likely to count against me? Especially if they think I lied to make it look like i have more experience than I actually have.
