I mean you don't have to put EVERY job on your resume or application when applying for another job.



I work at a daycare & feel as though if someone were to come to our center, apply, and write down that they were a previous bartender..... .I truly am not sure if they would be hired.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, it's a bad mix, other then that I have no job history, just babysitting kids for family.

What you put on a resume is your business. If its an application that specifically asks for your previous employment, or specifically asks you to account for all time with no gaps in employment, then you have to put it.

Personally I don't think it automatically makes you an alcoholic or mean you won't be good with kids lol but when working with kids, I just am unsure if that is something they would want to see on a resume. Some applications you don't have to put EVERY job you've had. Others you do. If it's a resume you're certainly the one who makes that call :)

I also have to make an appointment with a security office, to look into my background, Do you think He'd find it fast and ask me questions about it? And does it look good with putting down babysitting?

Did you get a W-2 from the bar where you worked? A 1099 form? Or was it all under the table? Were you a straight up bartender, or could it be construed as a waitressing job?



I guess I would say fill the stuff out honestly, cause it would be a deal breaker for it to turn up in a background check, and them to know you lied to them.

As for the babysitting... was it like straight up babysitting (a night here and there for various families), or was it more of a in-home child care situation? Creative wording can make a big difference in resumes and applications.

I never got a w-2 all under the table.



Yeah I'll probably put waitress because the weekends we held birthday parties and I had to serve everyone with what they wanted. It wasn't a hard liquor bar, only sold beers and food.

bartending gives you great skills! I would add it and make it as positive as possible.



One thing bartending gives you - how to handle difficult/angry customers! A great skill to have as a child care worker! (not saying the kids are like angry cutomers lol)

Yeah, if it was all under the table, and you did serve food as well, call it a waitressing job.

I would keep them at my house for my family and straight up babysitting for my mother's friend. Alright sounds good, only problem is my mother's 'friend' and her are no longer on speaking terms. I don't know if she'd do me a favor and put in a good word.

lol...thats what I was thinking too.



But it also shows you know how to stay calm in a stressful situation (bound to happen in a room full of kids) and if you can give an example of a time you had to calm things, it shows you can be assertive - always a great skill.
