Reader comment on: Covering Your Ex-Employer

Disclosures are only relevant in cases where there's a conflict of interest. I don't see a conflict of interest in either case and, frankly, don't understand your objection. You *are* saying there's something wrong here, even if you can't say exactly what. So, here's a question: Have you ever applied for a job at Bloomberg or the New York Times? If so, is that something you should disclose? You can take this to ridiculous lengths.

The Future of Capitalism replies:
No to Bloomberg. The New York Times I honestly don't remember, it's possible I might have applied there as part of a wave of job applications in early 1995, but I definitely haven't applied for a job there since 1995.
