Should I list being an AVON Rep on my resume?

by Janet Warner
(St Petersburg, Florida )

I have been an AVON Rep for eleven years as a side line. I was fired from my last job and am having a hard time getting hired because of it. Would it help if I put my Independent Contracting position as an Independent Avon Rep on my resume as my current job?

I am not really making much money just breaking even but I am totally having a hard time with the last job as being fired.

ANSWER: Hi Janet... I would definitely include your AVON experience on your resume. You don't need to volunteer how much you make at it. Neither do you need to own up to being fired from your last job, unless directly asked. Good luck in your job search... it's a tough market out there...
