I had to decide to voluntarily leave my career of 10 years, because of schedule changes and could not afford additional caregivers to cover. In the 3.5 years of care-giving, I let some of my personal responsibilities go, like paying my bills on time verifying bank balances and bouncing checks. This caused my credit history to be down graded severly. Also being out of regular work for over 6 months made HR screeners drop my applications becasue of no current work history. If I did get a response and a credit check was performed I did not hear anything more from the opportunity.
How can a person be forth coming and let a potential HR screener know this and not be a derogatory/negative representation for a job?
I am sure that I am not the only one that has seen this issue. I have asked a few HR professionals, but none of them want to take a position on this and actually let you know that this bias exists in the career hunting fields.
I thought we were all humans trying to get along...the best we know how and can???
