Job transition question: I recently accepted an offer for a new role with Merrill Lynch, the following day I was fired from my previous employer. I haven’t filled out the updated work history background check info yet. The reason for termination was due to performance expectations not being met. Should I reach out to my new employer and let them know that I’ve been terminated? Should I just put the termination update on the background check form and leave it at that? Wondering what I should do.

Okay guys, the financial industry is different if you’re a securities licensed employee. @workplace Planning Consultant are you licensed? If you were then you have to report that will be disclosed on your U5 and then Merrill will fire you immediately for not disclosing it.

That’s the true story behind it. First thing is ARE YOU LICENSED? and then, give the guy some advise

I would advise to turn on your resignation

Legally they can’t say that you were terminated. Background check is very black and white what they are able to ask. They will say. Did this person work form this period to this in this role. That’s about it. I would not say anything.

GE - not 100% true. They can ask for the dates of employment, but they can also ask if the person is rehire eligible.

I would simply list the dates in the background as if you just quit because you got this position. If you have a prior manager from the same company (not the one who fired you) that you are on good terms with, I’d maybe just reach out to that person directly and ask if they are willing to be a reference. If they say yes, list their contact info instead of your most recent manage or generic HR number. That way, you’re still listing somebody who can confirm your employment, but one who won’t totally trash your opportunity.

You could just say you left is all.

What kind of exit opps should I be targeting for 100k+, 40 hrs/week and fully remote?

5 years experience all tax. 4 years smaller firm. One year as a big 4 tax senior. No CPA.

Must haves:
-No OT (late nights and weekends). Hard 40 would be ideal.
-Fully remote. Could consider one day a week in office.

Should I be looking at senior tax analyst positions? Any industries much better than others? Would be cool to be in tech but not sure how the hours can get. My experience is in real estate.
