Question: “When called for a reference, my former employer tells prospective employers all of my strengths, but it also says I was terminated. The reason given is that the position had changed from the time I was hired five years ago and I was no longer a good fit. I believe I was laid off because I got a generous severance package and unemployment. How should I answer this tough question? I already lost one job offer because I said I was laid off, and that did not match the employer's reason, so they thought I was hiding something. What should I say? I was never on probation, disciplined, written up or warned so it was a big surprise when it happened. The company did not replace me, the other five admins split my responsibilities, and the company "terminated" three other people after me.” – Anonymous
