Job Interviews

Ugg! How Do I Explain THAT On Interviews?!?

  • You got fired for poor performance but don't agree with management about it.
  • You've got a DWI or felony conviction on your record.
  • You quit your last job in a rage and left them hanging.
  • Your last boss was a total jerk and let you go because you couldn't get along.
  • You were caught stealing and were let go.
  • You were accused of sexual harassment (but never convicted) and was let go.
  • You jumped jobs for several years and then got laid off and can't explain why you can't stay employed long-term.
