That sounds horrible. I would be honest about the fact that the 2009 financial crisis impacted you greatly. Address your bankruptcy head on and let potential employers know that you are excited about how you are bouncing back from the situation. It sounds like to me that this situation may have even sparked more of an interest in your financial profession. If that is the case maybe speak to your rejuvenated interest. Honestly, it might impact you for some positions, therefore, keep your options open when looking for your next role.
