For those who have been laid off, what does it look like right before? (like HR schedules a meeting with you?). I have this really bad pit in my stomach. No trolling or sarcastic stuff please.

I was laid off back in January and have been on the job hunt since. I’ve been lucky enough to make it to the final round for a few different companies... but ultimately did not receive an offer. Starting to have a hard time keeping my head up... any other fish in a similar situation?
