I have one previous job I can put on my UCAS (I worked there for about 6 months) but my most recent one I was only working there for 3 weeks.. should I bother putting it in my UCAS? I didn't leave the job in a good way, I wasn't fired but I was ill and they thought I was messing them about.. so I quit.
Anyway that's not here nor there, should I put it on my UCAS or not..?

It depends what it was to be honest. If it was something like shelf stacking, I wouldnt bother, but if you gained some skills from your experience then put it on and elaborate on it.

Our school encouraged us to put down any work whether it was relevant or simply a part time job for money. I would say put it down as it is highly unlikely any uni will contact the employer, and it all helps to show that you have experience in the world beyond just the classroom, but that is just going on what I was told (I put down my supermarket job and spoke about how it helped build skills in my personal statement)
