Let go from academy; how to handle?
I have been released from a firefighter academy. Of course, I was devastated, but my resolve and never-say-die attitude has not been destroyed. My former employer mentioned to me that they'd be happy to give me a good reference, and urged me to call them should I ever be close to getting hired again.
I am looking for advice in how to go about handling this in future recruitment processes.
Do I list it on the resume?
Do I list it on the job application?
How do I talk about it in a job interview?
Is it impossible to get hired now?
Thank you for any and all advice.
