I just got laid off and I just don’t know what to say “if” I ever get an interview. Any tips would be appreciated. I know when you get laid off, no one wants to hire you.

What’s to stop people from just not showing up to work and ghosting everyone instead of quitting? Wouldn’t you just get fired and at least receive a termination package?
