Clearly, the word "termination" carries with it a connotation that evokes a visceral response. As such, it becomes necessary to craft a more elegant way of touching upon the subject without over-sharing in order to avoid souring the conversation/interview.
 
I am a direct hire recruiter; if there is time before your interview, give me a call at[masked]!

Hi,

I have a phone interview tomorrow (yay!).

My last one didn't go as well as it might have on a couple of
questions regarding terminations and two long periods of unemployment.
 I'm still unclear and undecided on how to approach it and what story
to tell.  I'm wondering whether there is somebody out there with some
HR experience or a similar story with tips or opinions or referrals or
links on how to handle it, who has a moment today or tomorrow morning.

Thanks.

Ricardo
