Dear J.T. & Dale: I was fired from my job for allegedly saying that I refused a transfer to a different store. I became very upset about the unwanted transfer, but I never refused to go. What do I say when employers ask about my last job? – Allen

J.T.: You’ll have to be honest and say you were let go because you were upset about a transfer you didn’t want.

DALE: And there you’ll be, telling your story and feeling good about how honest and candid you are, and meanwhile the hiring manager is hearing an alarm go off and a voice cry: “WARNING: TROUBLE AHEAD! PROBLEM EMPLOYEE! ABORT INTERVIEW!”
