For those who have been laid off, what does it look like right before? (like HR schedules a meeting with you?). I have this really bad pit in my stomach. No trolling or sarcastic stuff please.

Learned that I’ll be laid off next week. Setting up networking meetings now to find something new, but know it will take time. How do you explain a lay off or gap in employment to potential employers?
