How to Prepare for the Job Interview If You Have Been Fired From A Job

May 08, 2012 |

1. Script Your Thoughts. Whether you were fired under unfair circumstances or for something you did that you regret, write down your thoughts on how you   would explain the instance. Read your script aloud or use a tape recorder and practice until you like what you hear. Better yet, answer the question for  someone else in a mock interview. Have him observe your interview technique–your body language, eye contact and comfort-level while discussing your  experience. Feedback from someone else will help you improve your presentation.

2. Check with Your References. It is important to find out what your former employer will say, or not say, about you if called for a reference. What you say  should be in sync with what your former employer will say. If you left the employer under agreeable terms, check with your former employer to find out
what you can expect.

3. Don’t Lie. Probably the worst way to handle the firing is by lying. One lie usually leads to another, and before you know it you are in over your head. You  always take a chance when you lie on an application. The application usually requires your signature, stating that the information is true and any false statements could be grounds for termination.

4. Change your attitude. People get fired everyday. They move on and get new jobs, and you will too. No matter what the circumstances, put it behind you.

5. Deal with your feelings about the firing, and prepare to talk about the experience in interviews. Being prepared will make you feel more confident and less  emotional about the situation. more information please click in link:
