It's been a couple of weeks that I was dismissed from my previous job. I have an interview this week and I'm not sure whether to tell the new prospective employers that I was dismissed as it may give them the wrong impression and may hinder my chances at being given an offer.
The problem is that I may need to provide references, I can provide references for previous jobs I've had but will it be necessary to provide a reference for my most recent job (the one I was dismissed from)?
If so, could there be a chance that my previous employers will mention (from the reference) that I was dismissed or are they not allowed to go into such detail?
I haven't mentioned anything yet but I am pretty certain they will ask me why I left my previous job at the interview as I've spoken to many recruitment agencies and when I had a interviews at other places it was a common question they asked.
I'm just a little worried that if I don't mention that I was dismissed it may come out at some point.
