Currently onboarding to a new role, at a global bank, and they are asking for a termination letter from a previous consulting employer from 2 years ago. I provided the background check company proof that I was eligible for unemployment since I did not get fired; it was due to performance, too technical for me. However I do not have any letter stating why I was let go. I have been requesting a letter for over 2 weeks from the employer but they’re not answering. Do I have to provide this ?

I’m confused. I was furloughed from a regional firm, and I’m scared of being laid off. I have an offer from a small cpa firm and an offer from a mid tier firm. My goal has always been to join b4, and I’m going to try when the hiring freeze (HF) is lifted...but what should I do right now? 1. Stay at regional, apply to b4 after HF 2. Take mid tier offer, apply to b4 after HF 3. Take small firm offer, apply to b4 after HF 4. Take mid tier offer, become senior, and then apply to b4 2 years later
