Anyone laid off found a new job via their network?

I would assume as usual, most jobs are found/obtained via an individuals network (maybe even more so now). My buddy from Deloitte who got let go (actually prior to this initial wave) is currently in the final stages of the interview process through a network connection

SC1 - guessing you got 4 weeks for 3 years of service? Is that what a number of folks got at deloitte during this initial wave of layoffs? That's pretty awful. Did you think about going through an employment lawyer?

I think most jobs are filled this way. It’s pretty shocking how a good network literally turns a job that requires 4-5 interviews to one quick conversation and “you’re hired”

LinkedIn also work like wonders if you have right content for right audience.

How do we do that ! Could you please elaborate more ?

Few interview calls via network.

Hi ! Looking for advice. I’ve been with a company in BC for 2.5 years, started support role, promoted to smb AE a year ago. salary is 65k with uncapped commission. We recently did layoffs, I was kept however there have been changes & meeting quota has become difficult & we have a way heavier workload. The perks are amazing but I need to make more money. Do you think I could get a role with more money with my experience that’s fully remote even in this “recession”..thoughts?

I have a contingent offer after being laid off in spring due to COVID. Since then the job market has obviously been tough, so a few buddies and I started a start up that has done very well, but we haven’t filed for LLC status yet (keeps pushing back). We have ~10 guys working on various areas. I just received an offer back in my usual industry, and have been truthful in my experiences. Will they ding me in a background check since there’s no 1099 to prove formal employment? FYI I have references

My manager casually threw out that she had an exec tell her it’s fine if she wants to close my division down next year. We are a niche team in a large company. I asked her to clarify as I am worried about my team (and me) she said we would be “well taken care of” as in receive severance…she was so casual about it and said she didn’t know what she would do - we’re performing well, but it’s a small market. What do I do? Warn my team? Look for jobs? I have been here for 20 years w/niche skills…
