I'm filing as many job applications as I can find and recently, I got a call back. The person wanted to call the previous workplace for reference. I said 'yes' as I did left with good standing with them, but since then, I havent got a call back. Which obviously means I'm not getting the job and maybe the person was probably told hings that are not nice about me. I feel paranoid since I only worked there for about half a year and I resigned because I wanted to go back to school full time.Now, as Im doing more applications, there's always a section that asks this. And I'm sure that saying no will somewhat hurt my chances... What should I do or say? should I just erase that work experience from my resume? What if they ask about that period of time of inactivity?Would like to hear advice.Thanks.
