I was fired from my previous full-time job six months ago (have been freelancing since then), for reasons unrelated to my ability to perform the work. I was only at the company for a week, but I did gain valuable hands-on time with Java, Python, Ruby, plus Selenium and related QA skills.
I have experience in these very valuable skills, and don't want to keep them a secret. My concern is that discussion of these skills in an interview could raise issues about how and where I learned them.
What are some ways I can communicate my experience in the skills to potential employers?
