I was fired from an agency in a holding company (not due to anything serious - new ECD just didn’t like me). Will that affect my getting a job w/ a different agency in same holding comp a year later?

“New ECD just didn’t like me.”
This makes sense for a layoff, not a firing. I think you’ve left out a bit of the story. What do you think they didn’t like about you?

The holding company only knows whether you were fired, laid off, or resigned. They wouldn’t have details of why.

But keep in mind, wherever you interview, someone there will ask anyone they know at your last agency, “what do you think of OP?”

This happens every time, and I’ve seen a lot of candidates get crossed off the list because they have a shady past If you did nothing wrong, you’ll be fine

@CW - it shouldn’t. The separate agencies don’t talk to each other much at the HR level.

When I was let go they said they’d never share that I was fired and would only confirm the dates I worked there I’d asked. I just don’t know if this is different for agencies that share a holding co

Nope

Thanks all. That’s a relief

Would ideally like to keep as one optically to avoid having to ‘spend more time in the manger role’… as I’ve been doing that role for a year now and keen to move on!
