If you are one of the millions of Americans who have a criminal record, a sketchy work history, or have ever been terminated from an employer, you will undoubtedly be faced with answering questions about your past. The critical question is, how do you successfully answer questions without jeopardizing your ability to get hired?
1. The first step is understanding what questions an employer can legally ask you.
2. Next, know how to best approach the answer based on your own set of circumstances.
Each situation is different, and you need to understand that yours is too! There’s more than just knowing what an employer can ask you and how to answer; it is essential to know which employers are willing to hire someone with your particular work history and background. Focus on getting in that employer’s door. Spend your time wisely by approaching employers who are willing to hire you. You’ll hear less NO’s and eventually land the job of your dreams, and you’ll be thankful for it.
