There's a month long gap in your resume because you got laid off. What's the best way to spin that?

I’ve laid off people I haven’t even hired. Two of my interns were literally born yesterday. Theres already a line item in your current paycheck for our 401K, since you’ll work here in 7 short years.

Caught in round of layoffs. Hard finding fulltime, it was easier when I was younger. I’m 40 but I look 30 (lucky with good genes). Would it be crazy if I cut my resume in half and pretended to be 30?

For the first time in 2 years I’m feeling hopeful again. Dare I say happy. I was laid off, big agency network, with a truck load of international awards, over 40, interviewed non stop, got ghosted ...

How do you know if you’re about to get fired?

Is it normal to be completely ghosted by former coworkers after layoffs? Calls, texts, emails ignored (other than ones having to do with the admin aspects). I’m paranoid HR told people to not respond.

I have constant anxiety over being laid off or fired. To the point that I’m starting to feel paranoid, reading into everything around me. I need some tips on how to deal with this as it’s crushing me.

Been laid off for few months. Should I start including how many Instagram Follow-Me Givaways I’ve won on my resume? I know what you’re thinking. “No,” right? But I’ve won 3. Which seems above-average.

What are the signs that you’re getting laid off? And how quickly can that decision be made? Is it possible to have poor performance today, then laid off as soon as tomorrow?

I’ve been laid off for around 4 months now. Multiple interviews. Multiple rejections. Tons of applications/ resumes submitted. Crickets. Anyway to find out if you’re being blacklisted?

Just got fired from my gig and found out I am pregnant all within 4 days. Thoughts on applying for a new job and if I get lucky and find something soon, telling new employer I’m expecting?

Was graciously given a heads up by a friend in management that I (& half the office) will be laid off. Aside from grabbing portfolio stuff, how should I prepare for my final day(s?) on this earth?

The best thing about getting laid off before the holiday party is that you don’t have to worry about getting fired after the holiday party.

I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.

To all people getting laid off: always apply for unemployment benefits within 7 days of getting laid off. Even if you won’t need it, it’s good to have an option to stay afloat.

We’re in such a vicious business. You give your heart & soul to an agency, a client, a brand. Then the wind changes & you’re laid off, reassigned, chewed up, spit out, on to the next. I’m tired.
