Can you start putting out feelers now? Networking can feel daunting but you can start slow by joining online communities and start engaging with other people. That way if a layoff happens, you've laid the groundwork.

That's frustrating. It definitely takes time and investment. That's one of the reasons I'm not a big fan of networking in general, even if it is a necessary evil sometimes.

I’ve been laid off in industry. It feels like the end of the world. It’s not. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, it happens , and people (believe it or not) want to help. Looking back it got me out of a toxic environment at a struggling large bank and moved my career onwards once I found something.

Control what you can control. Start networking and looking now.

How do you not take a layoff due to RIF (involuntary reduction) personally? I was told it is not personal. All full time positions except 1 were let go. Contractors on the team still exist and so does the team. I can’t help but wonder whether performance was a factor and it makes me really sad even after a few months! Any examples of how laying off full time employees over contractors helps with cost cutting? Thanks!

Hey team! So I was laid off from my SDR position about a week ago. A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.
