'What do you say to potential employers if you were fired for no reason?'

"It is ALWAYS important that you prepare your story and your answer to the question, "why did you leave your last employer?" You MUST have a brief, positive (as much as possible), clear, and non-defensive answer. Ideally it should answer the question (make the red flag go down) and lead you back to the true purpose of your conversation: your fit for the current opening." - Louise Kursmark, Career Coach
