After I left a position in 2006 where I was at for 1.5 yrs,
I accepted an offer to work for another company. A medical injury
happened during the transition, no insurance coverage, left me
bankrupt. These last two yrs I've undergone another surgery that
left me temporarily immobilized again. During this period, I had to
find jobs where ever I could sit so I did take a few altogether I
have been at three companies no longer than 4-6 months. This appears
to alert or raise concern with hiring Managers or professional
temporary agencies. What do I need to do, to show this on the resume I
never get a call back and a opportunity to explain it. I was a
manager 4 3 yrs. for wireless retail sales & 12 years in Customer
service & Business to Business sales.
Answer: Lump this time together in one general statement. Your resume should only be relevant to the position that you are seeking. If you have been working outside your chosen career field for 4 to 6 months just simply list that time as one position with the title of "Working outside of career field". In the paragraph state that you worked at temporary positions while you continued to search for work in your career field.

Temporary work not related to career field
You can elaborate later if you are asked directly what you were doing. Chances are that you won't be asked except to maybe put it on an application.
