How to interview after being fired
I was fired from my job in October. I took some much needed time off and am now applying for jobs. How do I explain my situation? I'll be honest. I work in an at will state and was not given a reason for being fired. When applying for unemployment, the reason for termination by my employer was. "She worked to the best of her ability." I was never on a performance improvement plan or anything like that. My work mentor didn't even know it was happening. So, I'm just looking for advice on how to navigate this. Thank you! Edit: I can't reply anonymously, but I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all who have given me advice. Your kind words have eased my anxiety about what happened and how to move forward.
