If you made it to a 2nd interview and just got fired from your current job, should you still disclose that you no longer work at the company in the interview, even though you applied while you were still employed?

I wouldn’t unless there is reason to (they ask for any changes in resume, references from current employer, etc). Last year I was applying for jobs, then got laid off. I didn’t tell the firms that I interviewed with that I got laid off unless it naturally came up. In which case, be prepared to explain so it doesn’t seem like you’re trying to hide something

What companies offer amazing employee benefits? I just started looking for a remote recruiter role. I have tried applying for companies like Google, Meta, Microsoft, but have not had any luck.

For example, I know UK companies have great PTO benefits, and I know of some companies that pay 100% of their employees benefits. TIA
