How to deal with a dismissal on a CV
« on: January 10, 2017, 10:55:17 AM »
I was dismissed from a job last year and I am applying for jobs at the moment however how do I deal with this dismissal on my CV? Do I have to mention that on my CV? Do I have to let my new employer know about it?

Thank you

This is not something I would address on a CV, a document in which I am trying to sing my own praises. You are not obliged to include this interview in a CV and need only discuss it at interview if you are asked about it. Even then, use choice language, for example, tell them you made an error in judgement and learned a very hard lesson on what you should do differently in future and that you hope they can see past it and offer you the chance to prove yourself in a fresh start.

Theoretically, you might not have to disclose this information. If they don't ask, don't tell!
