In 2009 I wrote this post: Prepare For A Layoff Before It Happens. I think this was another great post (I was such a good blogger in those early days of JibberJobber!). Here are my points:
- Get your resume in order.
- Start getting your network in order.
- Start NETWORKING. (with three networking tips to do right now)
- Understand your finances.
I was pleasantly surprised to see some of my friends share their ideas… five from Twitter and six from Facebook… and of course, excellent comments.
Hey, happy new year! I’m not here to put a damper on things but if you aren’t planning for a layoff this year, you might get caught in a very sad and serious situation! Better to plan now than to be surprised later! Read how to prepare for a layoff before it happens here.
