What is the best way to present yourself in a resume if you have a mentaI diagnosis which previously inhibited your loyalty to a company and you jumped from job to job?
I had a very difficult time staying at one job because I could not focus on my work and actually needed to multiple things at one time to keep myself in check. I was a great multi-tasker, but the job would soon bore me and I would not be able to do it without feeling severe anxiety. I only had one job I loved but I commuted 2 hours each way just to work and after 2 1/2 years I had to take a break. After finally being sent to a doctor and then a psychiatrist because of my focusing problem, they discovered ADD and gave me medicine. Now I am very focused, was even able to get my Master's degree. How would I demonstrate that I am a changed employee and can actually sit and do my work, as well as multi-task, to an employer since my past looks so bad. The references loved me, I was a hard worker, but I just couldn't handle doing the same thing day in and out without losing my attention on the project. Btw, my best job was one where I was in and out of the office all day. When I was given a project where I was stuck at my desk or in a room, I would lose focus very easily. #talent-recruiting #legal-services #government #human-resources #job-application
