Sacked from my last freelance role, how do I approach my next interview?


Registered Member
Hey all,

Unfortunately in my last freelance role I was fired.. A combination of a lack of experience (in this role) and challenging circumstances.

I intend to learn from my mistakes, and look for a similar job soon. However, does anyone have any advise on how to tackle the inevitable question 'why did you leave your last position'.

I can claim I left voluntarily, it had come up to the end of my project, I had been there a year... or is it best just to be honest and discuss the circumstances and what you will take from it?

(This is in the UK btw- construction industry)

Any kind opinions warmly welcome

Hi Capitan. Don Georgevich says take responsibility, don't blame others, be brief, and show why being let go from your previous job is not a concern for them. Watch this video for his thoughts on how to handle the situation you are having:
