  • If you have enough other work experience, that was long enough ago that you probably didn't need to include it. When applying for teaching jobs I only include the most relevant and helpful work experience in my resume.

  • That manager shouldn't even do that. Since you didn't get along with your old one, bias would get in the way. Your 'new' boss really needs to rethink his motives...
