I know its quite odd to do such because I am trying to sell myself on a cover letter but I was advised to just be upfront and disclose it which also gives the opportunity to sell regardless of the blemish. My background and the stipulations placed is due to the domestic violence relationship I was in. Does anyone else think this is a good idea? At least I'll know if I am interviewed after disclosing it wont be that I didn't get the job because of it, or else I wouldn't have gotten the interview anyway.
They're going to find out anyway and it's so much easier for me to write about it then to talk about it in an interview.
Any other advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
