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.

Hi everyone! I’m still currently interviewing and I’ve finally made it to the portfolio round of 3 companies. I’m excited but overwhelmed since I’m still pretty green to the field.

So my question is, should I create a ppt for this company? Lol. I’ve been watching YouTube videos and ppl are using Figma or keynote to present. Thank you in advance!

Would you treat this like a a 15-minute elevator pitch and not expect any questions? Or do I let them lead?
