Hi all-

The discussion about what to include in one's resume is an interesting one,
and leads me to another question that I can't recall being discussed on this
list, namely: do you include in your CV positions from which you were fired?
And if you answer that you don't present your resume chronologically, what
about when your potential employer requests you to provide details of your
previous 3 jobs in an application form, as is common in my experience?

Now I'm sure in some cases people are sacked because of personality clashes
or other non-work performance related reasons, but what if (perhaps early in
your career) you were given the boot because you genuinely screwed up a
writing task? How do you get around this? (For the record, this has
thankfully never happened to me!)
