If you’ve ever been fired or laid off or let go from your job for any reason, it’s dreadful to explain when interviewing for a new job.

Don’t fret.

Your career happiness expert is here today with answers.

Oh, I have more than just answers!

I have techniques for any time you’re in “explanation mode” in an interview.

I call it “defense mode” because you’re trying to clarify something you don’t want to be clarifying.

What’s worse, you’re not on offense—as in selling yourself!

When you’re in defense mode, the best you can hope for is to not lose interviewing “points.”

That means, you need to get this over with as quickly as possible so you can start scoring points.

Join me for the best way to explain your layoff in a job interview to learn these masterful techniques!
