I am preparing to reenter the job market and I want some opinions on whether to mention something in an interview, if the appropriate question is asked. When I started my current job I took it too seriously and did not have any time in the day to regroup alone. The end result was that I was rather annoying to be around the first couple of months. I quickly worked on the issues and made myself easier to work with but there was a tricky phase there that I'm not proud of.
Pros for mentioning:
Shows self-awareness and willingness to change for the best interests of the company
Avoids any presumed misleading of others in case references allude to this
Looks like I was being rather immature, company may wonder if it would happen again. I'd have to present it in such a way that I remove all doubt that I have passed this hiccup in my workforce behavior.
Should I or should I not mention this? I am concerned it may come up with references. I don't anticipate a repeat performance, though.
