re: Million Post thread,

Hahahaha that's the single best pun off of Facebook ever derived, and given the context it'll never be replicated. Goddamn.

Well **** man. At least there's a quality of humour to it that you'll be able to look back on one day and take pleasure in.

Did the guy work for the company or something? How the hell did it get back to them?

HOLY SHIT PP READ THE TOP COMMENT



"Because I'm unemployed." .. in case a different comment appears for you

Ha, sometimes the world just comes together in perfect unison.

The other guy worked for the company, and he was the source of the information too.

Breaking Bad is such a good show. I'm in the middle of the 3rd season right now. Loving it.

I am completely caught up now, and I just don't really agree. I expected it to be better. It's well done, sure, but it's not on the level of Mad Men, BSG, The Wire, or for that matter Game of Thrones.

What about your direct supervisor? Did/could you get a decent reference from him?

Are you in the process of an appeal? There has to be some way for you to make it difficult enough for them to allow you to leave with some sort of resignation agreement. Do you have representation through this process? I'm assuming there's no Union? Have you consulted with an attorney?
I never said "deny everything", well I did, but that was to avoid getting fired. This situation though should never be freely offered up to any interviewer. I'm not saying lie to them, just don't make it easy for them to move to the next candidate. Being fired unfortunately is a scarlet letter for many companies. That's why I would avoid telling them that, don't make up why you let, just be vague enough that you don't let on that you were fired but succinct enough that they don't 51k the need to delve into it further.

re: Million Post thread,

I could ask for a character reference (and may just do that today), but HR legally has to tell my next employer I was dismissed (in case anything happens again).

I had a couple call backs this morning that negated to ask why I left my last company, so I've ended up with two interviews next week. Hopefully in person I can work the charm and at least get myself considered.

I'm nervous. I don't get nervous.

I feel like I have a dirty secret.

re: Million Post thread,

Good luck, PP.

My cousin gave birth to a baby girl last night. She was three weeks early, but both she and baby are doing great. The girl is 5 pounds. Crazy! Tiniest baby I've seen/held ever.

re: Million Post thread,

Congrats Baze! Tis indeed a small baby, it's crazy how we grow from being that small.

PP, maybe you could apply a strategy shift between interviews? If you're confident in your ability to read people, and how they'll react to different personas, maybe it would be beneficial to go in 100% truthful. Walk into the interview reeking of swag, harnessing complete confidence, and when asked why you were fired tell him flat out the truth. ****, extrapolate on it a bit. Tell him this asshole was coming on to your girl, that she felt uncomfortable and violated (which, I presume, very well may be the truth) and that you reacted in a most natural, loyal manner out of concern for someone who is very dear to you towards someone who was acting incredibly inconsiderate.

With the right performance in front of the right person, that could do you better than walking in feeling as if you have a secret to hide. Anytime you go into a situation and you're self-aware of something that's working against you, it never, ever helps. But you already know that.
