I have a terrible resume. I kept getting my ex husband upset by working and I would have to quit. Plus, I would get mentally ill from the stress of working and quit a lot of jobs for that reason. I have terrible performance too. The paranoia and stress overwhelm me and I fail as a result

I was in the exact same situation. My ex husband would hate when I worked and I would quit as a result.

I’ve been in a certification program the past year that I’m about to complete, but the actual “getting a job” part is making me super nervous. I haven’t worked in 10 years. Not really sure how I’m going to explain that to a potential employer, but there were some helpful suggestions in previous posts. Wishing all the people looking for jobs some good luck!

OMG my resume is so bad. If I were honest and wrote a true resume, it’d be over 10 pages long. If I wanted a job right now, I’d have to use the excuse “I was caring for an ill family member.” In reality, I was caring for myself. The longest I’ve worked a job is 4 years. But I’ve been “hireable” for 24 years - with so many sh!t jobs in there, so many failed ventures into different careers.

Yeah, I’ve been applying places, but there are a few gaps in my work experience. Hoping that I’m good enough that it won’t count against me too much

I have sifted through peoples Resumes, tested them, interviewed them and given people jobs in my old career working in an office.

All I will say is that one of the best hires I made was for someone who had just come out of studies.

No one cares about school after you get to a certain age and level of experience

Some people others chose had really basic CV’s and I remember one of those getting the job.

What I would suggest to you is that if you have a scattered CV, and you’re currently not working, then study.

If you get accepted on a course and you complete it, you could open up a specialism, and prove to an employer that you can apply yourself to a course and see a project through to completion.

Many courses are online these days. So you could do it from home.

Just a suggestion. Hope you find a solution
