A) There are a few places where you can get a history of the jobs you have had:
- Your state’s unemployment office. Many state unemployment offices can provide detailed information regarding the employment history of people living in that state. You can usually get this information online or by contacting the office directly.
- The Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA can provide you with a copy of your earnings and work history, up to 10 years. You can request this information online or by mail. There is a fee for this service.
- Your tax returns. If you keep your tax returns, they should list the names and addresses of your employers, as well as your dates of employment.
- Your credit reports. While credit reporting agencies do not typically have direct information about your employment history, they may have information about your employers if you have applied for a loan or credit card in the past.
- Your former employers. You can contact your former employers directly and ask them to provide you with a copy of your employment record.
The best way to get a history of your employment is to gather information from all of these sources. This will give you the most complete and accurate picture of your work history.
Here are some additional tips for getting a history of your employment:
- Keep good records of your employment. This includes keeping copies of your tax returns, W-2 forms, and any other documents that show your employment history.
- Be organized. When you are gathering information from different sources, it is important to keep track of where you found each piece of information. This will make it easier to find the information when you need it.
- Be patient. It may take some time to gather all of the information you need. Don’t get discouraged if it takes a while.
I hope this helps!
