Probably a long shot - but if you’re actually interested go for it. One would think the recruiter should know through solid due diligence, but who knows. How’d ya get fired?

Fired or laid off ?

Did you really get fired as an intern? if yes, there is a chance that they realize right before they make an offer. This happened to me as the hiring manager. Our department gave me his resume. he had worked for my company (when I was in industry). I asked why he left, he gave me some good enough answers and after another round of technical interview, I requested our VP to do the final round. Right then, our HR went through the previous background check and informed the candidate that we couldn't move forward because of what he did before he got fired but of course they didn't tell me the reason
