Is it safe to hide the fact that I was part of a group layoff and say instead that I chose to leave? Can recruiters find out the truth from my former employer and hurt my chances?

Lying is bad. Forget the application process. If they ever find out you lied after hiring you they can terminate.

Don’t lie. Ever. Just don’t do it about anything. In this business, your reputation and relationships is everything.

Layoffs happen all the time. The only thing that matters is whether or not you are a qualified employee.

Why do you need a recruiter to be hired as an advisor?

Lying is bad on many levels. Don’t put your licenses at risk.

Because of non production I assume. Being honest and open could be to your advantage. Take the blame and admit where you went wrong (yes, even if it was all on your partner)

How is a group layoff a bad thing? Perhaps I grew up too blue collar, but sometimes companies downsize and good employees get thrown out, also.
