Welcome! In the Cardboard Chronicles Episode 4, we continue with an interesting look at humanity. Today we bring you a discussion of layoffs with Schelley, who is a Florida-based technical writer. If you didn’t catch the episode last week, the discussion focus is on ways to know that a layoff might be upcoming. Check it out!


Laid off and divorced

Schelley actually was laid off on the same date, May 16, from two different jobs, one year apart. One layoff occurred within 48 hours of her divorce becoming final. Ouch.

Meanwhile, in one of these layoff situations, her layoff was executed by someone she had never met. Another ouch.

Regardless, she’s got some stories. Let’s hit it.


Tune in!
