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.

What’s wrong with telling a recruiter you were laid off?

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.

Was in contract to buy a 3 family in the NY/NJ area before quarantine. Given the mortgage changes lender is now saying the only way to close is to buy down 1 point (approx 7k). We currently live in our other 3 family property so there’s some risk in: getting tenants to take over our unit +tenants for 2 units in the new house. Currently have a newborn to add more. Saw a great future in the new house but questioning if this is worth the risk? Or if we wait and see if the mortgage market changes?
