Was laid off mid job search. Do I disclose it when HR screenings have already taken place? I was looking for a new position bc we were acquired and I didn’t like what I saw from new company. (Guess my instincts were right!) I have several round 2s coming up and didn’t know if I should bring up the fact that I’m not with the company or just answer questions as if still employed

Don't ask don't tell



No need to say anything now that you are midway through the process - just let them know you can start immediately if offered a position.

I agree with the others, especially if you've already submitted your applications. If the information was correct when you submitted your application you are not obligated to update the information unless you are asked about your status directly. Also, I don't know your situation, but when I was laid off my last day wasn't for several weeks. If you are still technically an employee then it is not dishonest to say you still work there.

Hey all - McK EM here about to start a new gig at a startup. Spent the past 3 years burned out, exploring exit opps, then defaulting back to consulting life as usual.

I got my child vaccinated today. He is 6. It’s what his school and pediatrician recommended. We live in downtown NYC, we were here when it hit, and it was hardcore. I had doubts about the 5-11 vax, read the data, had theories in my head, but decided to do it, so I’m at the clean, calm site, hugging my boy as the needle goes in. After, we got ice cream and the street vendor saw his vaccination sticker and said, “Welcome to the club, kid.” I love you, New York. This is for him, and for you.

What’s more important, TIMELY feedback, or DETAILED feedback?


The company I currently work for, promised me a visa sponsorship and asked me to work from my home country as an individual contractor until the visa arrives. While I appreciate the flexibility and there has been no issues as such with the salary or anything in general, I am just conscious that it has been over 5 months already and there is absolutely no sign of the work permit till date. While I understand these things take time, 5 months seem to be a bit too much. Continued in comments…
