How Do You Have A Successful Job Interview After Termination?
Being fired is a difficult experience. There are commonly feelings of grief, anger and humiliation associated with the experience, and it is sometimes hard to believe that another job will be forthcoming. But as hard as it may be to believe, another job is out there. To get it, you must prepare to do a successful job interview. Practice what you will say in an interview about being fired from a prior job. A vital component to any successful interview is preparation. When you practice your response to a tough interview question like “Have you ever been fired?” you will sound more confident and believable to an interviewer. Think about how the interviewer phrases the question. Answer the question being asked. For example, if the interviewer asks, “Why did you leave your last job?” you must answer honestly that you were fired. If the interviewer says “tell me about your last job,” highlight the positive aspects of the job and the relevant experience you acquired without drawing attention
