I was laid off from D last week but had already been in the process of interviewing at a new company. Am I required to tell the hiring manager and recruiter of this company the update that i was laid off or is it suggested that i wait until an offer is extended?

You don’t have to disclose it. Just don’t lie about it if asked. E.G.,

“Why are you leaving Deloitte?”

“Because it’s a pit of vipers!”

Just don’t lie. Good luck getting the job!

Yes. The right answer is ALWAYS I’m leaving because ~this is a better opportunity because a, b, c. You can stick with that. In fact, it’s still the truth.

Yeah, it’s totally kosher to stick to your original narrative. No one’s going to ask you if you got fired, lol. You’re already in the thick of the process.

The only thing I’ll say is that when they run a background check on you, they’ll see that employment was terminated on 7/2020 so that has the potential to raise a red flag. You might get a call from HR at new firm asking for an explanation and you can just tell them that yes, I indeed got laid off during the interview process. That’s it. You’ll be fine.

Accn1 - maybe but I don’t think so.

Deloitte let’s you claim the firm as your employer until your severance pay runs out. If you were laid off last week, you have till month end to still claim Deloitte as your employer. So no need to disclose anything.

I hate my current job (no longer at BCG). Have been interviewing but no offers except for current one, which I was originally relatively excited about until I heard the numbers. Worse than my current role at this toxic company. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I’m feeling very depressed, hopeless, and worthless. I don’t want to stay here but I also don’t want to take a step back. I feel like either is just more misery and that my life is falling apart.I just want to end it all.

Does getting a good job seem based on inside info as much as skills? You should get an insider to refer you. You should do your homework which usually requires insiders to give you the scoop. You should interview/case the way the target firm/role wants, which again needs inside info. You need to go to a fancy school to buy access to insiders and inside info. You can be successful solo if you're a rockstar, or get lucky but for 90% of people, that probably won't work. Does this sound accurate?
