How Do I Handle Job History When I Don't Want to Include Every Job?
(New Hampshire, US)
I have a pretty impressive work history overall. But this past year, I left my long term employment (8 yrs) as an educational assistant to become a teacher at a residential school. After 2 1/2 wks I realized I could not do it and I left.
Then I got a job at a well known preschool program and after 2 1/2 months, I had to leave. There was a personality conflict and they were going to fire me and they also told me my "best" wasn't good enough.
So due to the stress, I left. Now I'm wondering how do I list these past 2 jobs on my resume? Can I just pretend they don't exist? I definitely don't want any prospective employers talking to those places.
I even had a question on an application asking me if I ever quit a job because they were going to fire me. Do I just lie?
