I was fired right in the middle of submitting my applications.

How damaging is that to my application?
How do I make the most of it for a successful application/interview?

Long story short, the workplace wanted someone that would stick for a long time. They did write me recommendation letters.

Thanks a lot!

Hi italianfoot ,.

I think you should mention the same in your optional essays but make sure you are not blaming anyone. Also, you MUST add *silver lining* to it.

I know your work has increased but school really prefers honesty.

Good luck :)

The thing is... I already applied to some schools. I can't go back and change them right?

Hi italianfoot ,

I think that's perfectly fine because when you applied to them, you were not Job less. You can find a new job and update them that you found some interesting opportunities in the New job, hence you changed it.

Whatever I meant initially was for the schools you are applying to.

Good luck :)
