Background Issues: When or What to Disclose in the Job Search

Posted April 11th, 2018 | Author: John G. Self



Today’s Big idea focuses on when a job applicant should tell the truth about an issue in his or her background. It is not as straight forward as you would think.

Reputations get dinged, people get bruised along the way. Some of the dings and bruises are more serious than others. Some can affect your career. The tough question is what and when information on the more serious career issues should be disclosed to a recruiter or the prospective employer. The answer is… there is no sure answer.
