How do prospective employers view fired(not downsized/laid off) employees in a NEGATIVE light,
considering them as problematic, unreliable, & most of all, as failures? There is a BIG difference between a downsized/laid off employee & an employee who has been fired from his/her job based upon HIS/HER doing. A downsized/laid off employee can easily rebound; however, fired employees SELDOM, if ever, rebound-many subsequently become MUCH WORSE OFF.
I don't think employers have anyway of even knowing if you were fired unless they find out through gossip. Most employers are looking for qualifications and they ability to do the job not employment history. In the job interview, you say I left because I wanted a change or more of a challenge. Believe me, getting fired is not the end of the world only a reason to go in another direction in order to better fulfill your dreams.
