Wow! What a day! What type of company starts layoffs right before the holidays? Lost my job this morning and I am stressed out. Is there any chance of finding a new job before the holidays? I'm doubting it.

I found a job in the last quarter within a week and I thought that was impossible. You will not have a start date before Jan 1 but you can be hired and go through the interview process. I’m sorry to hear that, but my layoff was the best thing that happened to me this year. I’m making 30% more with more chance at advancement. Hire a resume professional, use recruiters. You will be better than ok


Hello! I got laid off on October 11 and applied for a LOT of jobs and had quite a few interviews. (Probably around a dozen or a little more.) I finally was hired two weeks ago to start next Monday. My pay is going from $58,448 from my last company to $82,000 for my new job! It's a whooping 33.5% increase! Getting laid off ultimately worked out for the best for me getting me a much better paying job. That type of increase in pay would take forever at my old company. I am sorry that you lost your job. Hopefully you should be able to get unemployment in the mean time and your company provided a severance to keep you afloat until you are hired and get your first paycheck. Good luck!! Things can and will work out for the better on the other side!!!


What company and position are you in now?


Thank you for the response I’m on eastern LongIsland New York.

So sorry to hear this. What company ?

What’s company?

Awe man, I’m sorry to hear that!

Lockton is always hiring! I’m not sure you would be hired before the holidays, though, as my hiring process took some time

If qualified Lockton would def hire.


You're not alone. Duck Creek did that too. Reach out to your network. It's your best bet.

It seems to have impacted folks from engineering, saas operations, and customer service teams. Lots of people impacted have been posting their stories on LinkedIn.

Just had the same thing happen.. brutal timing

Where are you located?

I am hiring producers, if you're interested.

Yes, we are fully remote.

We also had company layoffs on Dec 1. My husband was impacted (we worked at the same company). This past week has been so hard to stay motivated with morale being really low and continuously learning of more people I knew that were also laid off.

Times are rough right now but I promise better opportunities are around the corner. It’s hard to see it now, but chances are you’ll look back and be grateful for the new path it put you on. Keep looking and don’t give up!

Sorry to hear that try LM

I've tried referrals through LM and applying on my own no luck yet. 🥹

Follow up post to my last post…My husband was laid off from the company where I also work. I am feeling really isolated / depressed about working and moving forward. I’m also getting to a stage where I’m really sad that people haven’t reached out to either my husband or myself to send well wishes or provide support. It’s like they don’t know what to say or I make them feel awkward so they don’t bother…I’m trying to focus on a few that have been supportive but it’s hard…Any words of advice? 😞

Got laid off. Have savings to hold me until I find a new position but mostly I'm just embarrassed. Has anyone ever gotten laid off and not told their friends/partner about it? I just don't want people in my circle to know I failed basically.

Interview just for practice?


I found a company I was really excited about working at. I applied for the job and went through 5 rounds of interviews. At the end they said I was OVER qualified and they want me for a different position higher up in the company. I was super excited they then had me go through 5 more rounds, 3/5 people were the same. The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!
