My work experience is fragmented for a few reasons:
1. In the Bay area dot.com boom, even very young professionals were hired away from their first jobs quickly
2. In the post dot.com bust, it was hard to find anything that didn't fold ( at least for me)
3. Recently, my company moved to another state.
That means that, aside from my 2+ year stint in the Peace Corps, all my work experience (we're talking almost 6 years) is fragmented to periods equal to or less than one year).
While, I know that I need to be forthcoming about this- especially at schools that ask for you to account for all your time since college- I am afraid of looking like a real fruitball who can't keep a job!
Besides using an essay to explain this, can anyone recommend a good way to make this experience seem more logical/seamless/acceptable? (eg: using a functional resume).
Also, at some schools, I may be able use the years instead of months on my resume... would you recommend against this?
