Q: I am a junior associate and I just got laid off from my firm due to low volume of work in my department. I’ve been offered a severance package and an assurance that the firm will assist in helping me find a job, including the use of my office for three months, and that most people at the firm will not know that I did not leave voluntarily.

I have begun to work on my resume and have started to talk to some headhunters. Should I tell any headhunters that I end up using that I have been laid off and should I reveal the real reason for my departure from my firm to the other firms?
