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.

It’s a Christmas miracle! Just got a new job offer after being laid off for over six months. I guess Santa *will* be able to buy presents for the kids this year. So thankful.

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.

Got laid off today. Happy holidays to me! Can I negotiate severance or is it set in stone?

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?

Have you ever been laid off? How'd it go down? How'd you handle it? I think I should be safe in an economic downturn, but a junior and worrier about money so I want to prep as best as I can.

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.

Already seeing posts about people getting laid off the Monday we come back from 4 days off, and right before the holidays. Sorry Advertising, I forgot what a dick you can be.

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.

Did you create this new Indeed campaign? Just so you know: in the history of the world nobody has ever arrived at their first day of work carrying a random box that looks like they've been fired.
