So, I applied to a company, but only listed years in my resume. I was fired from my last job (which I was at for slightly less than 6 months) about 8 months ago.
I organised an overseas trip and I was away for a few months. I haven't done anything related to my career apart from two small projects.
One of their HR people asked me before about the months, which I emailed to them. I didn't hear back from then, but two months later I learned that my application had been submitted to another position. I then had a phone interview, where I surprisingly wasn't. I then had a phone conversation with HR talking about arranging an on-site interview, where they asked me for dates that I am free and also to send information about the months and any gap greater than 3 months. Apparently, they hadn't been forwarded the months.
- Any advice about what I should say for this gap?
- Should I just send the dates, or should I pre-emptively let them know that I was fired and why? Obviously, I'd prefer to be asked during an interview, rather than over email, but when they run on-site interviews, it's typically about half-a-day. That is a big time commitment, so they may ask over email.
