How would you guys explain a “job hopping” resume at an interview?
My last job lasted 3 months and the one before that lasted 7. Before that I was at the same place for over 3 years, which I try to emphasize in interviews, but I still get the side-eye and lots of questions about the short stints that came afterward. (The truth is I left one job because it wasn’t challenging and the other because my boss was an inappropriate dick, but I can’t exactly say that.)
What would you do/say? I feel like explaining one short term job is so different from having to explain two! Ugh. I feel like this is really holding me back from finding work.
(FYI my recruiter recommended not removing either job as if I have to fill out an application and it’s absent from one but exists on the other, or they find the W2 in a background check, I will be removed from consideration.)
