many people, and to tell you the truth there are very few things that send
up a larger red flag than someone over-explaining the reason they were let
go from their last job. There have been times over the years when I just
wanted to stop the person! Your body language and demeanor say just as much
as your words, as does your tone of voice.

I was laid off in October. As Fred says, it was a business decision. That's
the explanation. I can say more, but none of what I say will be negative
about my former employer or their reasons for their decision. I would even
go a step farther and say that who they kept on is irrelevant.

This may be true, but I can't imagine hiring a person who would say this
about their former employer in an interview.
