For starters I know I shouldn't have signed it, this was my first job and I didn't want anything to go wrong. Our whole team got fired today. I was a month ahead of schedule with all of my edits.
This document basically said “you can't work in video / media within 70 miles for 2 years after being fired/ leaving”
Media is what I went to school for, it's all I know. I'm kind of scared to apply to jobs relating in my field, they might call my boss for a reference and he will connect the dots and bring up the document.
Any advise on what I should do? Would a contract like that hold any weight outside the job? Or is that just a tactic to keep us down? And “media” is a real blanket term. Sorry I'm just confused and venting right now. Thank you.
