A COVID-19 Layoff in Austin
We started out the series last week asking if we can contextualize firing as a good thing. If you didn’t tune in, here’s the link!
This week, we’re moving into the interview format. My friend Adam is based in Austin, where he’s been for six years. He’s had a bunch of different gigs in the recruiting world and the employer branding world. He has touched hospitality, sports writing, and some other cool stuff as well.
On Thursday, March 26th, he got laid off from his current gig because of COVID-19.
Listen in and let us know what you think
A layoff can be an emotional time for people. We’ll discuss how it went down for Adam, and how it could have gone better. Let’s discuss some effective, empathetic guidelines for layoffs during the pandemic. Here’s some not so breaking news: you need to communicate effectively.
Let’s go get it.
