What to tell prospective employers about why I was terminated?
I was terminated from a job that I loved with absolutely no warning. The official reason was that I "made too many mistakes". This was the first I had heard about it. I was never called into the boss's office about it, never written up, and it wasn't mentioned in any of my annual reviews.
I did make some mistakes. None of them were egregious, I owned every one, corrected every one and never made the same mistake again.
My question is: What do I tell prospective employers when they ask why I was terminated? I'm an accountant and attention to detail is vitally important. Do I tell the truth? Make something up? I have never been terminated and this has me reeling.
Any advice is welcome.
