If you've been laid off, how upfront are you about it in interviews? Better to let them know right away or further into the process?

Upfront because they will pull your finra broker check report before the interview.

I haven’t been laid off but I have been fired. It always comes up so you’d better have an explanation.

I’ve never been fired/laid off, but I’ve interview people that have. Trust me, we know before you came in. I actually don’t bring it up and wait until they do. If they have a reasonable answer, no issue. If they bash their old company or blame others, that’s a red flag.

I’ve brokerchecked myself and don’t see any mention of being terminated by a previous firm. Am I missing something or does it not report this info?

Hi there, I am looking for remote nursing jobs in New Hampshire. I have my compact nursing license, my BSN and have been a nurse for almost 6 years. Before that, I was an LNA. I come with experience. I can’t seem to get an interview for these types of jobs. Ill get eyes on my applications, will get a call back and then turned away due to having a compact license. For ex. I got a call back from A company out of Maine but says I need a Maine license. Anyone else have this issue?

I’m finding that a weird side effect of losing my job in this climate is ad agencies taking advantage of my weakened position. They get in touch, proactively or in response to my reaching out, and they want to hire me as they are in good shape. When I reveal I was laid off, the offer changes to freelance or maybe nothing. My work, awards, the fact that they know me and approached me in the first place should be enough. I don’t want to lie about my situation. Any ideas how to avoid this?
