If you don't come clean, your background check will be a dud, and if it's a dud you need to come up with a good explanation. Fast.

You will find that the data in your application does not match. So you can either tell them before they hit the wall or you can wait for them to get back to you with the story in your application that doesn't. t add up. If you become proactive, you can influence the perception to some extent. It's much more difficult to shape perceptions when the facts are on the front page.

You didn't want to be perceived as a job hopper, but in order not to be perceived as a job hopper, put yourself in a position where there is a good chance that you will be perceived as a liar. Personally, I'd rather come across as a job hopper than a liar. A hundred times. If I was considering hiring you, the question on my mind is, at what point can I say you are telling me the truth? In all honesty, I'd rather hire someone who is clearly less qualified but who is telling me the truth than someone who has all the qualifications but whom I cannot trust. All organizations work with trust and there is no telling what will happen if trust is violated.

Nowhere is lying on a resume as serious as lying on an application. And you lied on an application. You have to come up with your own narrative.
