Do I have to be specific on the work dates for the past five years?

San Diego, CA |

Some of the companies that I worked for closed and my mistaken was not keeping the exact dates from when to when I worked on those places. I know the months of when I started and when I ended but no the days.

I have a few correct but at least 3 of them are just an estimated time of the dates.

I want to submit my application by the beginning of June and I'm concern they'll denied my citizenship because of the same matter.

Please help me.

Thanks you

  1. Are you referring to an employment application or a citizenship application? If you are applying for a job and don't have specific dates, you can just provide your best approximation of the dates (or years).
