A big lesson here is to get a good back story. Sometimes, things do not work out but that does not need to be an employee issue. It could be that the employee had standards and the employer wanted to cut corners while the other TWs went with the flow. Honesty can work in the favor of the TW when such honesty is conveyed without some insecurity about why the job ended. Look at the good things that could have occurred if the job continued. These are the things the employer didn't want.

If the [only] position was eliminated, it's easy to explain, but if you were laid off while other writers stayed on, there will always be a question about why you. Erika
