Anyone ever been unexpectedly laid off? As in completely blindsided, was not ready at all for it? How did you bounce back?

Yeah it happened to me. Ten+ years ago. I bounced back by getting over my ego and telling my network I needed a job. It was hard to tell people I respected and liked that I was laid off. Especially when I didn’t really understand why at the time. (Yes it was 2008/2009 but still - why me.)

People were great and supportive and I got a job at a firm with a supposed hiring freeze through my network. I’m incredibly grateful to everyone that helped still and I remember them all.

Prior to that, I’d have prob been fired from Uncle D. I liked them, but didn’t have enough connections to make sure my role still existed with me in it.

Happened to me this summer and It sucks. I took a couple days to reset and get the resume pulled together, then went out on the job hunt. Network and reach out to as many people as you can, it is the best way to find a job. Around 75% of the jobs I’ve applied to online are either stale postings or companies still waiting to pull the trigger. Keep your head up and stay positive. People can sense negativity through the phone whenever you are ready to start the hunt again.

Means you probably weren’t being honest with yourself.

I believe you weren’t trying to be a smart ass EY 1, but your post reeks apathy and finger pointing. Gotta be precise since this is the internet and we don’t get context behind what you say. I do agree self-reflection is vital, especially in this scenario.

I was very successful as an internaional sales exec at a startup for 15 years before we were bought by a large publicly traded company. The culture shift was dramatic, as was the way that I was expected to work. I was laid off a tortuous 3 years after the buyout.

While I was in some ways relieved (put me out of my misery!) I spiralled pretty hard and after a while started working PT jobs, gig type stuff, etc. while I figured things out, and healed from burnout.

This question might anger some, but not meant to be provoking. Does anyone else feel that half the jobs in tech (scrum master, project manager, product manager, etc.) are more hindering than helpful? I feel like productivity would sky rocket if we didn’t have 10+ hours a week added of admin work/agile ceremonies/status meetings, and you just let developers and analysts do their job. Why are we spending hours learning how to estimate story points (for example) rather than improving production?
