When you hire someone, does it matter........?

I was fired from my job and was told by a career counselor to tell prospective employers that my leaving was due to a "mutual agreement". Does it really make a difference to to the person conducting the interview? I'm employed right now, just looking for a better job closer to home. Are there any managers or people that hire at their places of employment on CafeMom that know?

  • I used to hire people. I would have preferred the truth, that you were fired, because I can't stand lying and when I call the reference-past employer- and ask the terms of your leaving (he can't say anything bad about you, but he can say "she quit" "she was fired" "we parted on mutual terms" or something like that) and it is different from what you told me you aren't getting the job.
