As some of you already know by now, I was laid off yesterday after four years at my firm. Yes, I am doing fine and I expect a quick recovery.
As the sole planner in my firm, I staffed the entire department during my tenure. In the exit interview the owners were not sure about the future of the firm. This morning at 9AM they are having an all-staff meeting to discuss my lay-off and a restructuring of the firm.
One of my competitors has an old boss on staff and a few other people who I know very well. I applied for a job with them a few years ago but was rejected. However, I still get along with all of them. Now that the planning department at my old job is dissolved, I want to capitalize on this as much as I can. It might be a relief for the competitor to know that my old firm might be kicked out of the running on future planning projects.
My master resume at my former job is about 6 pages in length (including brief descriptions). From my experience, consultants often include project experience from past employers for new proposals on new teams. Since I was the only planner at my job for 4 years, the competitor could bank on my project experience from my firm when going after projects. Obviously, I'm not going to give the competitor any working files since that would be an ethics violation.
What are your views regarding the master resume?
