When applying to my next employer, do they need to know/do they find out that I was on short term disability at one point while at my current employer? I fear this would ding me as they would view me as a potential risk.

Nope they do not.

I wouldn’t tell them that. It’s none of their business. I wouldn’t expect this to appear on any kind of background check.

Uh no. I was on FMLA/STD twice during my previous employment. It’s no one’s business except for the firm you were working at and took that time. You don’t need to reflect any hiatus from work like that on your resume either.

Mask off: Journalist to freelance copywriter. Started working full-time under contract for an agency that won't hire me. I've freelanced for agencies and in-house marketing teams, but I'm always the outsider looking in. I want to transition to a full-time permanent gig. Interviews seem to go well, 2 agencies went to 3 interviews and nothing. I know I'm totally missing something that agency insiders would understand. Would love advice on navigating uncharted territory. Thank you!

Could use your help.
