resume writing – reason for leaving previous employment?
i know that it is not good to write it in, however i am seeing alot of recruiters requesting for this piece of information to be stated in the resume as well.
i have searched and for resume writing tips etc, but most if not all will tell you not to write this in.
so how/where do i write this piece of information in after every employment description? any other ideas or tips regarding this as well?
and, i am new into the working force, so i had included holiday jobs that i did in the past, its quite weird to put a leaving reason for those, but i see some recruiters stating ‘Please stae a reason for leaving from EACH OF the previous employment(s)’
i dont want to come off as inattentive to details right from the start!
help me please!
thanks for the quick answer!
yes i am aware of the reasons, im just slightly stumped since i dint used to see this request being made to be written on the resume, i would have expected it to be asked either on application forms or interview..
i had always viewed resume as something very positive about yourself. to put information like that is kind of like stepping into a minefield..
yes i know, however if u read my first post carefully, i stated that the employer has asked for this piece of info upfront on the resume if i want to apply.
what other choice do i have?
Make a note that the holiday jobs were seasonal & then under reason for leaving write something like "end of Christmas retail season" or "end of summer – returned to school."
The point of asking the reason for leaving is to try to make sure you didn’t get fired. If an applicant lies & the employer finds out – it can be grounds for termination.
