Best Answer

If you have been fired, on a job application you simply tell the truth yet you must try to make it seem as if it was a common mistake of your part and just a devastating choice by your employee to fire you. That way you're not lying, you're simply ellaborating and putting your personal opinion to why you got fired.

Can you get unemployment if you get fired because of charges you had on file 7 years ago?

That depends on the laws of the country in which you live and what you put on your job application form. Some countries legal system's say that for minor crimes where the conviction was over 5 years ago, your conviction record terminates (the rehabilitation of offenders) and you do not have to mention it on legal documents. Thus if you made a job application after 5 years you could not be fired. However, if the 5 year period had not expired and you did not mention (if asked) the conviction when applying for the job, then you would have lied on your job application form and you can (and should) be fired for doing this.

How do you list a job skill from a job that fired you?

You could list what you learned as a result of being fired, or what you learned while on the job.AnswerIf you worked there for quite some time before being fired, then list the job on your application. If it was a short while and you weren't ever comfortable there, just leave it off of the application.Now, if it was a significant piece of your work history, put it on the application, show contact as available at interview. Then, without criticizing the company, find a positive way to explain what you learned, or the skills you gained. Practice the phrasing and how you say it, so that you sound positive and confident-sometimes it is traumatic to have been fired, and you don't want to show that.
