Hi everyone. This scenario is not about me, but about someone know. He had been working as a statistician/consultant but for reasons related to his performance, he ended up being fired from his company recently (if it matters, he had already thought about leaving the company prior to his firing, and he's aware of his performance issues and knows how he should address them). At the same time, he has an upcoming interview with another firm who has expressed an interest in him. The concern is how my friend/acquaintance can best explain his current circumstances, specifically about why he is leaving his current position. I haven't responded back to him on any advice yet, so I was hoping to ask all of you here on your thoughts.
