A little about the circumstance I am in. I left a good job (I hated it though) to go fish in AK running charter boats. The previous job knows why I left. The day before I left to AK, I hurt my back. I spent 2 weeks in AK before quitting do to back and leg pains, AK company knows this.
After getting checked out by doctor in my home state. I had sciatic nerve and who knows what with my back (Docs. were unable to determine and didn’t want to do a MRI). It has been 5 months since original injury and I am healed (finely).
The one thing I am asking for advice is. Should I list the AK company in my “previous jobs”? I only worked there 2 weeks, but filled out a w-2 form and got a pay check. What I am worried about is that an employer will call the AK company; hear about my injury; then discard my application. I have heard and met others that had a hard time getting jobs with a previous injury.
I am looking to get into tugs/commercial/drill rigs/etc.
Do any of think I am over thinking this? Or should I just not put this AK company on applications…just forget about ever working there?
Thanks for any input; as this is really bugging me.
