I would be totally honest and open about it, if they ask. You're planning to join the new firm, but you see a great future for yourself at this firm you're interviewing at is better.

I am a fresher. Have 3 months experience. About to get terminated cuz i couldn't clear an assessment. Worked on a full stack application during my training. Shall I tell the interviewers of my upcoming interviews that i have been terminated? Also, does this training experience count as work experience and will it be an advantage for me during interview ?
