I often hear from job hunters who are concerned about imperfections in their backgrounds. Employment gaps. A history of leapfrogging to a new job every few months. As they pursue new opportunities, they wonder if they can overcome their mistakes and secure steady work.
My answer is simple: Yes, they can. But many job seekers roll their eyes at this response. They're used to judging themselves harshly. Lugging around their shortcomings like heavy, unwieldy burdens. Feeling unlucky and unemployable.
