What to Do When You Get Laid Off: Tell Everyone

The door is that way, buh-bye.


You've got nothing to lose by spreading the word and getting your loved ones working on your side. Layoffs happen everywhere, to most everyone. Enlist the people who know and care about you to be your partners on this journey.

At worst, you'll get some cyber hugs to boost your spirits. And who knows? Your dream job may have just opened up at your uncle's mechanic's next-door neighbor's company.

We'd like to hear how you've coped with layoffs and unemployment.
