Since you’ve already left and are looking for a new job, your new employer may ask a few questions or even look into your background. This may cause an alarm, especially if you know, to the best of your abilities, that you did what you could under your jurisdiction.

Hit the dirt n’ take cover, folks! It’s time to lock n’ load!

#1. Crisis

When a company looks good but does something illegal under the table, it will more than likely make the company founder. Take for example the Salad Oil Scandal of the 1960’s. Some dude made billions of dollars out of fake vegetable oil but did great until the assassination of US President, JFK. Only then did his business get caught. When this happens, you should do your best to prevent saying anything directly related to your previous work. Say you worked for a company that unexpectedly closed and that you worked as a xoxo in xoxo position in the company for xoxo years.


#2. Moving

When you decide to leave for another place or even another country, it’ll be an important part of your life as it can change it instantly. If you happen to be the spouse or relative who went along, you may find yourself jobless and entering the part-time sector. Then you find yourself in a good position and want to return to the world of your dream job but the other job is making your transition look embarrassing.

You’ll have to be clever in this regard because leaving your dream workplace and entering another field then returning to your dream workplace is tough. In this case, you should say that you moved and made a great career and can use your skills learned to become an invaluable asset and to grow with the company.
