Yes, you should put a job you got fired from on your resume. If one of your past positions is relevant to the job you want, you should always list it on your resume — even if you were let go from that job. Simply list your start and end dates for the position, and don’t mention why you left unless asked during the interview.
Even if a hiring manager does ask why you left your job, telling them you were fired isn’t the dealbreaker people think it is. In fact, being fired doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re a bad employee. Many employees are let go for reasons completely unrelated to their performance, such as:
- Company downsizing
- Changing business needs
When writing your resume, it’s best to simply be honest about your work history and why you parted ways with your previous employer.
