Why companies consider only the current experience?

Kindly help me understand why companies dont consider the entire professional experience and only selective experience. Like for eg.. I worked for 3 different companies for gaining my 5 years of experience but my current employer asking me to show overall experience with the current experience only.

Dear Sunit

If the company is considering only your current experience then this is not right. The entire working experience is important however some portion of your experience maybe more relevant than other sections.

So you need to check out with the company the reason for considering only the current experience as it is not the industry norm.

Was this question useful to you?
