How to get a job after being fired for poor performance

You WILL be asked why you left your previous position during your job interviews. If you were fired from your last job, it’s important for you to take the time to craft an honest but positive response to this question.
Don’t fall into the trap of criticizing your previous employer. Even if the company was at fault, saying so will make you look disloyal and negative. Keep your response brief and to the point. You don’t need to provide all of the ugly details. Remember that your interviewer is looking for red flags — they will be paying close attention to any information that portrays you as unprofessional, unmotivated, or dishonest.
If you were let go for reasons unrelated to performance, make that very clear. These days, most candidates have survived a layoff or two. Interviewers won’t look down on you for being let go as a result of downsizing or reorganization — especially if you weren’t the only one affected.
