How to Answer the Question "Why Were You Fired?"

Written by Lisa DiVirgilio, MS.

You were let go. Now, to add insult to injury, your next potential employer may ask why you were fired. It’s not necessarily something you want to rehash, but something that needs to be dealt with in your next job interview.

It’s important to remember not to lie, stretch the truth or drag your old company and/or boss through the mud when you answer this question. You always want to appear in control and confident of your work and yourself.
