Hello, I'm not sure where to post this but I have been teaching for 10 years or so and I am about to apply for a non-teaching job with a charity. It is educational, but no contact with children. Have a full, clean CRB record and also a 'clean' employment history. The problem is that after leaving uni, I spent two years doing all kinds of media jobs - temp work, freelancing, internships- as I was trying to get into journalism. Lots of these companies don't exist as they went bust with the dot.com crash, one employer has moved premises, and overall I did stints of anything between one day and nine months. I can barely rememember all the dates or what I was paid. Would it be bad to just put the longer jobs down and extend their duration so there are no gaps of a week or two here & there? Or is that totally unethical? Part of me thinks that since ten years have passed and I have my teaching refs it won't ammter, but I want to know what other people think. Cheers! PP.
