A few weeks ago I accepted a job. However before I worked there or even had training, I turned it down. I felt like a few things that happened during the process didn't feel right so I turned it down. How should I handle this on my resume?

    Why would it be on your resume? You never worked there. – user45269 Jun 21 '17 at 19:40

    @mcknz Not quite the same as this person actually didn't even work there... – mutt Jun 21 '17 at 19:48
  • The resume exists to show you have the experience and training (I.e. Education and/or OJT) to justify hiring you. So the resume should only contain that information. You accepting a job then turning around and changing your mind doesn't accomplish that goal. You should be honest on your resume, but work experience in McDonalds for instance is only relevant if you want a job at Burger King (or if you have no other work experience) – Donald Jun 23 '17 at 12:04

Your resume should only contain job experience. As you never worked there you don't need to put it at all on the resume as it's not "experience" at that job.
