I've messed up, on my cv - I put reason for leaving for every job I've done and gave a brief explanation. On one job gap I said it was illness, but for another job gap I said it was to decorate my new home.

In the interview, she didn't ask me about job gaps, instead she asked me 'tell me about yourself' which I spoke of my job history and gave her reasons for leaving each job, for my most recent job that I left I said it was because I wanted to volunteer in the environment.

They offered me the job on Monday and sent me an email asking for 10 years work history with reasons for leaving and explanation of job gaps. I decided to be honest and said that I left my recent employer due to depression, but I've received therapy and have medication to keep it under control.

The thing is, I didn't mention this on my cv or in the interview, so they might not give me the job after all, because I omitted to tell them the truth.

I'm now panicking.

I guess that are lots of untruths included in CV's and it will not come as a major surprise to your prospective employer to encounter one more. But the ball is in their court now and you will just have see what they choose to do.

I received an email from them to say thank you for sending in the form and that they have passed it onto the admin team, so that's good news. At least they didn't comment on the fact my reason for leaving was different.
