Found this on another forum: how to handle/protect yourself during a layoff. What’s your thought? https://candor.co/guides/layoff/

Anyone ever experience being on a project where your supervisor or lead just tells you they don’t like your work and to just fix it without providing any reasoning or how to fix it?

I have ADHD and anxiety already and this is just heightening it all and I’m paranoid I’ll get fired at any moment…

I have a friend who unfortunately was just laid off as a bank teller. He has four years of experience, but has never done consulting. Is this something that he could try his hand at?

Currently on H1-B and employed. Expecting to be laid off soon. Can I go from H1-B to H4, search for a job and come back to H1-B? (Spouse is on H1-B as well but no i-40)?
