Should you put a job on your resume if they let you go after the 90 probation period?

by jjj

I was let go after the probation period. They said it just wasn't working out. Should I put them on my resume when looking for a new job?

Answer: Hi there... I have to say, I think including this on your resume isn't going to help you find a job at all. Unless it provided valuable experience you haven't gotten anywhere else (doubtful with only 30 days of work), it's just going to raise red flags. And these days, omitting a mere 30 days of work (in other words, showing a month of unemployment) isn't going to surprise anyone. I've talked to people who have been out of work and actively looking for a year or more. So, don't include it!
