No termination package if you are fired for cause, probably won’t get paid out for vacation days or for any days worked since last paycheck, wouldn’t be surprised if the company finds some way to withhold bonus or other comp, and good luck if you ever want to get a reference or work for that company again

I don’t think you’d get a termination package for rightful termination...

Fair points. I guess my question assumed that the bridge was being burned anyways

If this isn't for you, be a stand up guy about it, grow some balls and tell your md/boss face-up.. bridge burnt or not, at least the other party would respect you for having the balls to have a conversation

@OP. I wouldn’t say most people who leave are burning bridges. I still regularly do beers/coffee/lunch with the teams from my last two firms (including bosses)

Don’t burn bridges if you don’t need to - I go out of my way to ensure I don’t. You NEVER EVER know when you might need to use them again. (Well done, Analyst 2!)

Should an ad agency be able to thoroughly check my references and ask for my entire employment history (including why I left each job) before agreeing on a salary?

I’ve had 7 interviews, met every stakeholder, was initially approached by one of them, who will be my boss. Plus I’ve had great feedback after every interview.

I was laid off from my previous job because of COVID so don’t have a ton of leverage. But that shouldn’t make me powerless. The process just seems like overkill.

So I was laid off back in mid April after 5 short months with a job that I absolutely loved. I’m applying to mid-senior level jobs and being told that I’m overqualified and should apply for VP level jobs. When I apply to VP level jobs I’m told those are hired internally. So, do I just lie on the resume to dumb it down?! Also- should I list the layoff in the resume and then in the ATS they have so it doesn’t look like I wasn’t just quitting after 5 months? I have it in my cover letter but is it

It’s absolutely contrarian that this show up on a job application. If we are trying to get away from labeling people, then let’s get away from labeling people. Especially when it goes into very personal specifics. What’s next: Out of 50 shades of gray, which number are you? Or: If gay, please specify bottom or top. (Let’s say I’m versatile, which do I choose!?) Oh, methinks I’ll just stay unemployed then.
