@p3, prospective employers can call your past company and get the dates of your hire and departure. Not the circumstances, or whether or not you are eligible for rehire.

Nice! Hope it went well - other consulting firm? Industry?

Good luck! How did you get the interviews?

Good luck!

Did they ask about your current employment? If so, how did u respond?

Thanks all! PwC3- I targeted a very specific discipline, nationwide, and applied to like 30 positions - 1 recruiter reached out directly and that's been the outcome so far. The other 2 I got through employee referrals - used my network from both the firm and my friends. They asked about my employment and I tried to paint a picture, but she said at the end "so you were laid off?" (Which totally made my entire story seem irrelevant) And I said yes of course. Then we moved on to the specific of my experience

That's awesome pwc op!! I've always been worried at how recruiters look at candidates that have been laid off when considering them for the position. Interesting that you were honest with them.. Is there anyway for recruiters to confirm if u were still employed or not?

Also, were these positions a lateral move for you?

so OP could have said s/he wasn't laid off as long as the dates were correct. IMO not really fair of the interviewer to force your hand like that

Thanks strategy& 1! That was super helpful
