My work history goes back some 25 years. The longest job I've held was 9 years in healthcare field followed by a job I held in banking for 2.5 years. I've been with my current company for 1 year. If I am with a company more than a year I try to change departments or roles just to give me some variety.
Most of these jobs were right after high school and I changed jobs a lot in college. I guess the red flag might be that I've only stayed months in these jobs not years. If I count everything I may have had close to 26 jobs since I started working at 16. I guess I really like change and do not stay in one place too long. I do not like to burn bridges and always give an in person notice or a letter of resignation.
I know this is a red flag on job applications. In the past 2 years I have had 5 jobs. Most of these jobs were call center "work from home" type jobs. I want to work from home but nothing has been working out or hasn't met my expectations I suppose?
My question is: Is it illegal to not list all your jobs on a job application? I certainly do not want to get in trouble for leaving something out? If listing every job is required how do I explain reasons for leaving? I just think that listing all these jobs will ruin my chances for employment? Also, there is no way to do this without raising red flags. In that case why even apply? I have no problem telling/discussing these positions or gaps in employment if it comes up in the interview. Most are irrelevant and I didn't stay long enough to gain any transferable skills. Thank you
