I am thinking of looking for a job again, or at least seeing whats out there.
My problem is that I have had an usually long string of jobs where the companies no longer exist. Either they were acquired (and dissolved) or just went out of business.
The last time I was looking for a job and I got a feeling that some of the interviewers were skeptical when I cant provide contact information for a number of the companies. At best, I can point them to the company that took over, if it was acquired.
Also, references are an issue. For some of these out-of-business companies, I do not have contact information for my supervisors.
What is the best way to handle this situation?
