I worked at a job for 12 months but I decided to resign after I broke a few company rules which made me look bad, and made my experience working there really awkward. My manager wasn't happy about it and didn't want to give me a reference.
Now I want to apply for the same kind of job at a similar company. (1) If I leave the job on my resume: I won't be able to get a reference, will have to make up some kind of excuse as to why I couldn't get one, and why I left. Surely all of that will make it harder to find a job, yet I need one soon seeing as I'm unemployed. (2) If my job is off the resume: I could say I did some travelling or something.
Which is the better option? I'm feeling desperate since the $ is running out.
