Optional essay advice [#permalink] New post 09 Jan 2006, 11:27
Hi,

I am finalizing applications for round 2. Unfortunately, as I was preparing for applications, my comapny had a massive downsize and I was laid off. It has only been 11 days that I have been unemployed. Should I explain this on my optional essay, or leave it alone as I will most likely find another position within a month? What terrible timing....
Thanks for the help.

If you are unemployed when you apply, explain the circumstances.

Good luck!
