If you’re looking for a quick way to find high-tech, and high-quality, talent, Layoffs.fyi has a fantastic resource. The crowd-sourced tool allows those laid off in the tech sector to add their info – which includes name, location, title, functional area, LinkedIn info, and more. It’s a bit of a treasure cave for those who have funnels to fill. Just hit the List of Employees Laid Off, and open sesame.
While there are major tech layoffs happening, the latest inflation, jobs, and unemployment numbers suggest that hiring will broadly continue through the quarter. Since most companies have woken up to the idea that they are all – at some level – tech companies, too. Which means their hiring teams need to, well, hire.
Go forth, and get these humans new jobs. It’s good and good for you.
