It’s such a dilemma – you hated your last job and it didn’t end on a good note. Your employer probably won’t give you a glowing reference unfair as it may be as you did work hard. So what do you do on your CV – lie? leave the job out? no your instinct is right – the truth is the best way – why…. well you could forget that you forgot about the job on your CV and somewhere way down the line you might slip up and mention the job or someone who knew you turns up and unwittingly tells your new employer. The only thing that looks bad then is you. Be brave and frank at interview. Of course you are up to a point bound by confidentiality about how another setting works so you could say the job did not go well but make clear there were not any safety issues or disciplinary measures,just an unhappy time in the wrong job. And remember somewhere along the line we all have had a job we didn’t like – its the facts of life and any reasonable employer will understand that.
Loved this cartoon says it all about those very special days at work!!
