How do you explain a long list of different jobs during an interview?
My bf has had a lot of different jobs, and isn't sure how to explain this during interviews - he used to be very hot headed, and any time a boss was unfair, he would quit (before you make nasty comments - this was years ago when he was younger, he's not like this now).
