So I was recently dismissed from my first Legal Secretary position; the company cited performance issues 5 months into my probation.
Now I won't lie, some of the work they gave me I found extremely difficult to get my head around and asking for help was difficult because everyone else has such a heavy workload. It also didn't help that they had processes in place which various people didn't stick to at times.
The annoying thing is that I work I was able to do I thought I did to a high standard and the main body of lawyers seemed very happy with my work? One even recommended me for a job at his friend's firm after I left.
I didn't contest the dismissal because I, myself, hated working there and was planning to hand in my notice anyway, but hey-ho.
I've spoken to a few recruiters and they've pretty much said it will affect my chances of 1) landing a permanent role for the next 5-7 years, 2) means I won't work in the Legal sector ever again, and 3) will most likely mean I won't land a role in HR either. I've come to terms with all these 3 points now.
I wanted to get some feedback from everyone as to how I should present my dismissal in interviews?
