What to say about your previous employer?
Have you got a great relationship with your ex- employer? If the answer is yes, then feel free to share some of the details with your interviewer especially if there was a connection between this relationship and how it positively impacted your performance.
If however, your relationship with your previous employer was not so good, you rather keep the details to yourself. Speaking negatively about your previous employer will negatively impact your chances of being hired by your next potential employer.
You might have had some terrible experiences with your previous employer , however, a job interview is not the best place to share such experiences.
Save such stories for your friends and during social engagements. For example, if you worked with a boss who insisted that you work constantly overtime until you got robbed and still got a query for reporting at the police station after the incident instead of the office, you should be careful as this might be easily misinterpreted by your potential employer.
Sometimes the interviewer would ask if you have had any unpleasant work experience. IThen you can share the experience like the one above but chose your words carefully without condemning your previous employer.
Share the experience precisely as it happened objectively (there si no difference if that happen in Myanmar or somewhere else), as well as how you overcame the experience as well as moves you made to reach out to your previous employer towards resolution. Be tactful, honest and approach this from an objective viewpoint.
Hope you will get a new jon in Myanmar sooner rather than later.
