I got fired at this place I worked for a year, should I still include it in my AEO APP? I mean what are the chances they are going to call?

Or should I leave my work experience section with the only one other experience I have.

I wouldn't include it unless you can trust the contact to say good things about you.

But aren't they just verifying that you worked there?

IMO: It's not good to use a reference to a place where you left on bad terms i.e. were fired. You definitely would not want the university to know that. However, maybe you can ask your contact how they feel. It's hard to say whether they will actually call.

I don't think schools will call to verify. But I know some of them do so don't lie about extra curriculars.lol As for the getting fired thing, I'm sure you're gonna be ok. They don't care too much. I got fired from my workplace too lol :P

Thanks Guys.

Haha athrunxo, good to know someone's on the same boat. Like it wasn't because I raped someone or beat up someone or anything, I just stopped showing up to work.

Hmmm, I'm going to take the risk and put it.
