Last October, I turned down a pay raise and a promotion at my old job to take a much better paying job in DC. Long story short, it was a terrible fit and they canned me after four months. I don’t regret leaving because I was miserable there from the first day, but it’s the first time I’ve ever been fired. I was laid off two years ago from another job, but that was because the company had been bought out. I can’t go back to my old job because I have already been replaced.
Should I put this job on my resume, and if not, how do I explain what I was doing for the past four months?
Moreover, at 41 is it possible or practical for me to go to grad school and/or make a career change?
