I was wondering if I should include a job I obtained for 4 months while working a job that I am still working and have been working for almost 2 years on my resume? Or does that look odd seeing as I have held one job for such a long time and would have a short job in between that time seeing as I was terminated from that 4 month job.
Thanks for any input!!

If you were working a main job and also working another job, I wouldn't include the second one. Especially if it's not relevant to what you're applying for. I'd only include it, if it's directly related to what you're applying for (for instance, bartender for a bartending job).

Especially if you were sacked from it. No reason to even go down that road with an interviewer if you don't have to.

I agree. I have had a few jobs of "short duration" that have never found their way onto my resume.

Heh. I have a 3 month stint with Sears on my resume, and the only reason it's there, is to stop the unemployment gap at 19 months.
