I got the job offer last week. However, I realized that I may made a silly mistake. Since I wasn't comfortable when asked about my current salary during the interview and I was afride they will benchmark it, so I gave out a number a bit higher than what I'm making. Now I seriously regretting making that false statement. If they find out at backgroud checking, they can fire me.
Now what I should do? To confess it to the HR representative or simply live with it? If I choose to confess, will they still trust me? If I not saying anything, I may put myself in constant fear.
My friend say don't worry about it, most company care more about your credentials not your salary history. But I feel uneasy.
Please help me!!!!
