I'm currently two years out of undergrad. I will be laid off soon as a result of my previous employer being acquired. Really unfortunate timing as I had already been planning to apply for Fall 2020 masters programs this year before knowing about the layoff.
Now, I plan to look for temporary employment that will last me until Fall 2020 masters programs begin, in addition to continuing my grad school applications. I was wondering what people's opinions were on whether I should be upfront with recruiters and companies with my timeline and possibly look for contracting work or an extended internship, or whether I should apply for full time positions without letting possible employers know that I plan to leave in under a year.
