If you decide to omit a short term job from your resume, can this hurt you once it shows up in your background check?

How do you manage this without looking like you're a job hopper or withholding info?

The BG forms usually ask that you enter all employment in a recent time period and they can see prior employment using your SSN, so wouldn't that look suspicious to omit?

You can omit but then you’ll have a gap to explain. The background check is to really confirm if you worked where you said you did on your resume.

So I’m on a case team where I’m the “anchor” aka most experienced member of the working team. It’s me, a fresh out of undergrad woman, and our day to day project leader. Technically he is supposed to be our manager but I’m ending up spending so much of my day to day time in addition to my own work checking the other woman’s work, answering her questions, screen-sharing stuff that I’m doing so she can learn, and sometimes I find it’s at the expense of me finishing my work on time.

In college I was sexually assaulted by a guy in my larger friend group. I didn’t press charges, but I ended up telling a few people in my friend group and gradually everyone found out. I tried to avoid him at all costs, but it was hard because we had the same friends and he was popular.

Now after college I’m invited less & I feel like I’m gradually being cut out of our larger friend group. I want to find new friends, but it’s so hard to feel excluded. I feel depressed. What do I do?
