What do you do when you have a really poor work history?
« on: January 10, 2017, 10:10:43 AM »

Really need advice. If you have had a really poor work history, lots of time off with no work, and more than a few jobs you have wlked out on (job abandonment), how do you go about filling out a resume? Do you list the 8 jobs none of which are very good, or the one or two that you worked for long enough to have a semi positive input? Really want to turn my life around and become employed, I'm truly afraid at the age of 26 it may be too late.

Job abandonment looks terrible to a future employer, and so I would tread very carefully. If I were you, I'd look at getting a job somewhere that isn't especially picky for staff, or where you have a contact who can set you up based on the trust that you won't screw up like you have previously. Whatever job you have, agree to yourself to stick at it for a minimum of a year. You need to rebuild your reputation. Also remember, a good cover letter could support your CV - only include jobs where you have stayed three months or longer.
