The problem is, I was fired from Raymour because of inappropriate language in the sales office. This is a big experience job for me, so I don?t want to take it off the resume, but I feel like when asked, I tell the truth, but it does me harm. Also, I didn?t graduate NYU, but left after 3 years. I don?t know what to do, because I feel like I?m not getting jobs!
