I recently interviewed while still employed. I have since been let go from my previous employer. Should I tell my interviewing Firm I’ve been let go? I need a job but don’t want to seem desperate.

Don’t lie, but don’t volunteer it.

Agreed,☝🏻

If they ask for references it will come out. Probably better that it come from you now with an explanation so you have control over the situation.

Are you having a second interview? If not, i agree with Partner 1 - don’t go out of your way to volunteer it.

Hold strong for a little. It always seems to take forever. If you need to prop yourself up for a little try uber driving or something. If you don’t hear back in two weeks or so, you may consider moving on.

Interviewing for an account executive position at a marketing agency and they are asking for a salary range following my initial interview.

Does anyone have insight of what the best response of a salary range would be?
