I was already looking for another job, feeling "bad things" around, and have sent a few applications. Nobody replied so far, likely due Corona around.
Recently I have received an official message I am being laid off. I also received a letter of recommendation that is a good, positive letter of recommendation. There is more than one reason to reduce the work force, that's OK.
Would it be helpful for me to send the "update" that I am now available immediately plus one more positive letter of recommendation to several companies I have just applied? Or is it better "not to touch"?
