Recently laid off and reaching out to people working at companies I'm interested in. Mostly folks I don't know but went to same college/worked at same place. Should I mention I was laid off in initial note or wait until a meeting? I can see benefits to either timing.

What are the secrets to longevity and not being perceived as too old to be hireable later in life? I’ve seen a lot of people get fired in their late 50’s at my bank and struggle to find positions again. Rational or not, this terrifies me (modeling planning to work to 65 if possible, though 27 now). It seems like ageism isn’t just real but tacitly accepted.

*POSTING THIS ON BEHALF OF A DEAR FRIEND* A former coworker was laid off today, along with a few other people. She’s a Public Relations Executive, with lots of music and entertainment experience. I know these are hard times, but if you know about an agency or brand in need of staff members or freelancers, please don’t hesitate to reach out 🙏🏻 Thanks!

Are people honest with their reviews for staff? My assistant only supports me and someone else so I feel like if I go off, it’ll be obvious it’s from me and I’ll have to face repercussions from her. It sounds ridiculous but as most of you know, apparently being incompetent as an assistant is not enough to get fired.

Woke up to the dreaded “Conversation with X” meeting on my calendar this morning 😔 I know this question has been asked multiple times but can someone provide me a list of all of the things I should send to myself before being let go? Also, does anyone have any tips on how to negotiate for the maximum severance package? So much processing through my head right now and trying to remain level-headed to figure out the short term plan in the meantime. I have my call in the next 3 hours. Thank you!
