Job and Bills After Cancer (State Aided Medical Care

Hello! I went on state aided medical care for my surgery after my regular insurance was dropped. It was dropped right at the same time making me pre-existing. No one would help but my states insurance coverage. Truely that was a blessing but when on that care I had to make less then $1,100.00 a month. Supporting a daughter and an apartment cost more then that so I lived on my credit cards. Now I have huge debt. Also during that time - to be able to stay on the stated aided insurance - and to keep my monthly income below $1,100.00 I worked flexible jobs. Now that I am able to work full time, I take jobs I just don't have a talent for (sales- commissioned) because it pays the largest amount of money in a short time so I can pay down my debt. On the flip side -- I have lost two jobs in the past two years because I never seem to be able to hit my sales quota. It is just not my talent. Those things I am gifted at doing don't pay enough to support me and pay down my debt. I feel so frustrated and don't know where to turn. My question is - how do I explain to potential employers about my huge debt (many companies check credit rating). And how do I explain what looks to be someone who just jumps from job to job. I am not a slacker. I am the employee that always stays late and goes above and beyond. Thank you for sharing information.
