This question already has an answer here:
I'm currently in a recruiting process. My headhunter set my first interview while I was still on my last job. Recently I got terminated by that firm on bad terms. During the first interview, they never asked me if I was still with that firm and I didn't say anything. But at the end of the conversation HR did ask if I plan to get my bonus first with the current firm.
For consistency and also not wanting creating new problems, I just said:
I wouldn't miss a good opportunity for 1-2 months salary.
And I will go in for my second round of interviews.
I feel weird not telling them I already left the firm. So should I bring this up voluntarily? My mentor told me wait until they ask first. Also someone recommended me to tell them in the later stage.
