    How do you overcome being blackballed?
    If you don’t want me working for you, then don’t stop me from getting another job somewhere else.

    How can I get the job I want, without the interviewer going off my past?

    Thank you

      Regarding your question about being black-balled…

      You are onto something that is tough to get around. Within a town or region, if you violate trust
      or otherwise disappoint (or anger) an employer, the probability exists that the word will spread within the industry.

      You have no control over that -once the horse is out of the barn.

      The only way I know of to continue working within the same industry is to relocate to a different locale and start over
      -or to humble yourself to get a job within, promise not to disappoint and begin the process of rebuilding your
      credibility and your good name.

      If you made mistakes, you’re not alone.

      If you’re not a good fit for the job because you are unqualified, that can be fixed with additional training or
      continuing education.

      You just need to talk someone into giving you a shot.

      You can consider going outside that industry and rebuilding your work history. You might need to start on a
      lower rung of the ladder if you don’t have good references under these circumstances.

      Whomever is blackballing you can only affect you if you allow them to. You have the option of changing a couple
      of things in order to go around them. You can relocate, get additional qualifications and/or go into a different
      line of work. Either way, you’re in control.

      Hope that helps,
      Onward and upward.
