I've been banking for a few years now and have found myself in a bit of a disturbing situation.
I just had another annual meeting with the boss only to find that they no longer need me around (easier to get rid of in this economy than promote). He's basically given me two choices: resign or be fired (the reason for firing isn't exactly clear, he just cited general performance).
Now, resigning would bypass any form of unemployment, but I'm concerned that being fired would put a permanent dent on my record (some sort of form following me around). Is there a specific form that follows an individual around or would this only be something that comes up if and when a prospective hiring party called my previous employment?
Any and all help/advice would be appreciated.
