I’m talking today off, so this is a reprint of a post from April 2016. A reader writes: I recently got fired from a job of four years. They told me I could stay until the end of the fiscal year (several months from the time of firing), and that I’m going to be replaced by one of my colleagues.

Ask A Manager

It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go…. Can I take notes on an iPad in an interview? This happened to me two years ago, but I’m still not sure what to make of it. I had signed up for government-sponsored interview training, where they teach you how to prepare for an interview and practice with you through roleplay. It was a great class, very useful, and I learned some great skills.
