    Don't forget the old "it wasn't a good fit" explanation.............

    you could just briefly say that in both cases neither were a good fit and that a termination of employment was mutual-makes it sound like good, lets them know that there was 'termination of services', and ex-employer can't give reason for termination. Actually, about 15 yrs ago when I worked in HR briefly, I was told that by law, you can't even say that a person was terminated. You can only give dates of active employment.....check into the law before you misrepresent yourself though. And also I know from the HR experiences-I worked in a factory then, but sure hospitals are pretty much the same-most HR and NMs know each other socially or sometimes communicate 'off the record' and information is passed that way-it is very hard to prove though......Very best of luck to you, I'm getting ready to start my own job search and even though I have no terminations or major issues hanging over me, it is stressful just the same. Perhaps we'll both come out winners in the job search game....

    Quote from kwagner_51
    I got a call today for a second interview, for a float position in a hospital!!

    This is what am planning to say regarding my past experience:

    I was employed at the hospital as a GN/NE. I left that job d/t a lack of orientation. On my second job I was in charge of med pass, giving insulin injections, doing accuchecks, flushing PICC lines, hanging IV's, doing dressing changes,responsible for all care and supervision of CNA's. My position was terminated.

    What do you think? Does this sound appropreate?



    In His Grace,

    Good luck!
