Problem: Less Than Ideal Employment History

  2. Have you not worked for very many years?
  3. Did you work in jobs that were not closely related to this one?

Problem: Not Enough Education
  1. Do feel you don't have enough education?
  2. Is your education related to the job you want?
  3. Did you have jobs that would be similar to this job?
Solution: You might want to list jobs where you performed duties that could be used in the new job you want to get. In lieu of a strong educational background show you held jobs similar to this if that is the case.
