Quoting Landon's Mommy *7wks*:" I mean you don't have to put EVERY job on your resume or application when applying for another job. ... [snip!] ... come to our center, apply, and write down that they were a previous bartender..... .I truly am not sure if they would be hired."
Quoting Frankie-marie:" Yeah that's what I was thinking, it's a bad mix, other then that I have no job history, just babysitting kids for family."
Quoting Kimberly Osorio:" What you put on a resume is your business. If its an application that specifically asks for your previous ... [snip!] ... your previous employment, or specifically asks you to account for all time with no gaps in employment, then you have to put it."
Quoting Kimberly Osorio:" Did you get a W-2 from the bar where you worked? A 1099 form? Or was it all under the table? Were you ... [snip!] ... out honestly, cause it would be a deal breaker for it to turn up in a background check, and them to know you lied to them."I never got a w-2 all under the table.
Quoting Kimberly Osorio:" As for the babysitting... was it like straight up babysitting (a night here and there for various families), ... [snip!] ... or was it more of a in-home child care situation? Creative wording can make a big difference in resumes and applications."
Quoting Shannonsfirst:" bartending gives you great skills! I would add it and make it as positive as possible. One thing bartending ... [snip!] ... difficult/angry customers! A great skill to have as a child care worker! (not saying the kids are like angry cutomers lol)"
Quoting Kimberly Osorio:" Yeah, if it was all under the table, and you did serve food as well, call it a waitressing job."
Quoting Frankie-marie:" Haha thank you! Ya the lady told me if anything bad ever happens it's with parents."
