If you get terminated after 2 months, do you enter that experience in your resume or it is best to leave it out. If you do enter in your resume how do you explain in an interview why were you fired? Thanks.
That's a tough spot to be in.
My advice is to put it on the resumé. It's always better to show employment than to leave a big empty gap.
In the interview, don't say you got fired. If they press you, be neutral about it. Say it wasn't a good fit, or that you each had different expectations when you took the position. Try to add a something positive from the experience also, be it a new skill you were exposed to or a new style of working.
Don't lie! but you don't have to divulge every detail. Employers do understand that sometimes people simply don't fit to a new position. At my company we commonly hire new people under a 90 probation period for just this reason.
i would say that you should disclose it smartly by spilling only the required beans further i would suggest that you should upgrade your skills by getting certified in your job field and if you are in administrative field you can opt for < a href = "http://www.brainmeasures.com/courses/Six_Sigma_Black_Belt/index.aspx?cid=2"> six sigma black belt certiification </a>,< a href = "http://www.brainmeasures.com/courses/Project_Manager/index.aspx?cid=4"> project management certification </a> or you can choose from from a <a href = " http://www.brainmeasures.com/tests.aspx">list of 1000 tests </a> to choose from.
If already hired then you can horn your skills and get better position in office hierarchy.
Wish you all the best for your job.
You do not write the reason for resignation or termination in your resume, but you have to be honest during your interview. You can read more about it in my career hubs, Job Search Tips: Find a Job After Being Fired from Work. Good luck!
