What is the difference between fired and laid off?
The key difference between being laid off vs. getting fired is that a layoff is the fault of an employer while a firing occurs because of the employee’s fault. Most workers get laid off because the company is trying to cut costs, reduce the staff, or due to mergers and acquisitions.

Many employers do not want letters that are over 18 months. I always upload mine on the computer and just change the dates. But there are some that only want “recent” employers within the past 12 months or so.
Are letters of recommendation important for a job?
The recommendation letter is important for a candidate to get a referral for a further job position. It usually happens when the recruiters or hiring managers do not ask for a recommendation letter; however; it doesn’t affect the other person if you have the letter and available to send after the interview.
Is it easy to get a job through reference?
Don’t let a bad reference keep you from getting the job. Sometimes the best resume, smartest cover letter, or even the strongest interview skills are not enough to persuade an employer to hire you. To get a job, you also need people who can sing your praises, people who can attest that you’re a star employee.
Does layoff count as termination?
