I got laid off 4 month ago due to the economical reasons of the company. In my
cancellation contract, it is clearly mentioned that:
I am being layoff due to the restructuring of Employer activities. So, my position got redundant.
Also, it says,
The company has decided to lay me off, because i had the least experience and skills in my team.
sadly, my ex-employer will not say good things about me to the other employers. However, I am sure, I always did my best for my employer. Please, read this question.
Recently, I was invited to a HR interview, and the HR told me (beforehand), he wants to know about my success, and failure stories in my previous company.
I want to be very honest with him, but I also don't want to minimize my chance to get the job. So, I know being laid off is not a bad thing by itself (especially when I have written contract which explains the reason), but I do not want to make HR suspicious, so he will not refer to the ex-employer.
So, how may I explain it to him?
