What if your last job ended badly?

People tend to hop around jobs these days—if they can land them. What if the last one was a bummer?

Some job experiences are miserable, let’s face it.

CareerBuilder says to tell the truth if asked about your last job. Talk about your strengths—maybe about how it was not a good fit with those skills.

Say you did not find your passion there—be passionate.

Do NOT trash the place, the old boss, nutty coworkers, etc.

Don’t belabor it—you are looking for a new job, the old one is history—that is obvious.

Even if you are afraid of a new job—what if it is more misery—don’t let that come through. Man up (or woman up), start fresh.
