Do I have to mention jobs?

  1. I have a quick question. I am an LPN and am wanting to get back into it after some time off. When I graduated I took 3 different jobs in long term care but had to quit them within 2 months each time due to husband issues. I got rid of the dirt bag and was wondering if I have to mention these jobs or can I just mention the one job I had that I kept? If they ask me what I was doing after graduation can I just tell them I was taking care of family issues and not mention these jobs? If they hire me and then find this out can I lose my job for not telling them? Thank you!

    I am in a somewhat similar boat as you. I barely received my nursing license at the beginning of this year and was quite the 'job-hopper' until I found a workplace with a flexible schedule. I usually don't mention jobs on resumes or employment applications if I worked at the facility for less than a couple of months because I don't want to give anyone the impression that I'm a 'job-hopper'.

    Mention only the long term one that you kept. Less explainations that way:smilecoffeecup:
