Should I include my last job if the buisness was dissolved because of unethical practices by employers?
(Rome, New York)
I am applying for positions that I possess skills and training for that do not pertain to my most recent job. My last job I quit due to the business being dissolved.
It was closed because of unethical practices by the owner. Even though none of it was caused by the employees, it still received media attention and to those outside appears questionable.ANSWER:
When you leave a period of employment off your resume, it results in an apparent employment gap, which can raise red flags, especially if you worked there for more than a few months.
Even if the company's dissolution generated a lot of bad press, I can't imagine that this would reflect badly on employees under the top management.
I think you need to be honest and complete on your resume and trust that if you are a qualified applicant, you will still get the chance to interview, at least at any employers worth working for.
