Might be a blanket policy that a lawyer advised. I got laid off a few months ago and even that severance agreement had a clause stating ‘you agree not to seek employment with us’ again (more like, I agree to tell people I actually like not to seek employment with this group of horrible people.) They don’t all do that though, I got laid off from a Publicis agency and they went out of their way to help me get a job at another Publicis agency.

I’d love to know the answer to this too...I know someone wonderful who got terminated from an Omnicom agency for no fault of his and no one in the omnicom network seems to respond to them anymore when he applies for a job.

So I love my fiance with all my heart. He's the most patient, caring, loving man. Our wedding is planned for some time end of next year. But he just got recently laid off and doubts started to creep in again. He has always worked, but always in a dead end kind of job. And this job was his first "professional" job and now that's out the window. While I trust in his potential, he's not dumb or anything. He's a bit slow (not very aggressive, quiet). I just keep climbing up the ladder so the gap is

Since graduating college 4.5 years ago I’ve worked at three marketing agencies averaging a year and two months at each. I took four months off earlier this year after a layoff to study data science. I’m now back in digital marketing on month six of my current job. How long should I stay at my current company? I’ve been told two years minimum which is unfortunate because if I leave in six months I’ll make a lot more money on the market.
