The Cardboard Chronicles: How to Know a Layoff Might Be Coming


Happy Friday to you all! It is Friday, right? We have another episode of the Cardboard Chronicles! If you didn’t tune in last week, you can check it out here! In last week’s episode, I interview my friend Adam about his COVID related layoff in Austin.


Listen in and let us know what you think

This week we have a conversation with Brenda, a mid-career professional who has been through about three layoffs in her day.

We talk about signs where you can sense a layoff is probably coming. Toward the end, we talk a little bit about “being called down to the basement,” as well as drinking Diet Coke through a straw, and individual layoff stories we’ve had.

Don’t worry, it will all make sense eventually. Let’s dive in. Leave comments below!

Listening time: 25 minutes
