Dear Dr. Mimi, I was recently let go from a company. My old boss just contacted me asking work-related questions. Should I respond? —Now What?
Dear Now What, If you know the answer to the question, I say go for it and answer your boss. This is the perfect opportunity to have a good interaction so you can continue to network and maintain good relations. You never know if you might go back to that company or perhaps need a reference. —Dr. Mimi
