For those who have gotten hired during the pandemic, was there anything you negotiated during the hiring process that helped you feel more secure in case of any layoffs that occurs after you’re hired?

If there’s a gap between when you start, negotiate you health insurance coverage to start immediately. COBRA is so expensive.

Not me personally, but some of my friends who have been laid off and since found new jobs negotiated specific severance considerations.

I’ve always wanted to do this. But I never knew what was reasonable to ask. Or if it would make you seem like a pessimist.

Say the person was coming in an ACD, is it reasonable to say I want at least 4 weeks severance in case of layoffs. Or could I even ask for more?

I was laid off during Deloitte‘s mass layoff in July of last year. I have worked as an independent contractor since and projects haven’t been consistent at the client I’m working for. I’m looking to get back into a big firm and was seeing if anyone would be able to refer me or help get my foot in the door. I was a business analyst for 1.5 years at Deloitte and have several years of additional experience which I’d be more than happy to share.
