Getting Fired

How do I answer, during an interview or job application if I was fired from my job of 23 years? I believe I was fired because I made too much money.

It is always difficult to be terminated from a position. We are not always clear about the reasons. The first issue here is for you to reconcile the reason for yourself. You may or may not ever fully know the actual truth. Either way, as you approach your next interview, you must NEVER indicate any hard feelings about a past employer. So you have to work through your own feelings about it so they don't erupt during an interview.

You will have to develop an answer that fits the situation and allows you to be clear about what happened without giving too much information. Then answer the question and move the discussion forward to expressing your talents for the position.
