In a first interview (with the head and global head of the department) for a senior researcher position in a multinational company, I hesitated and said that I'm currently employed instead of telling the truth: that I was let go 4 months ago.
The reason I did this: in the past 5 years, I changed companies 3 times. No specific or performance issues.
I did amazingly well at the first conversation. My background is a perfect fit for the position.
Now that I was invited for a second interview (Skype, since we are in different continents), with more people (a HR rep., head and global head of the dep't, and another analyst in a correlated area), I feel I should tell the truth.
HOW can I do this without drawing attention to the fact that I omitted/lied about it? Would it be a good idea to not tell them the truth?
