From Crystal:

I know many, many people are either unemployed or waiting to hear if they’re being laid off.

What advice would you offer someone? What are the three most important pieces of info that they need? If you’ve been laid off, what do you wish you knew then that you know now?

Post your suggestions, and we’ll offer some of ours soon in an upcoming blog.

  1. Grandmother Says:

    First, chill, breathe, take a walk.
    Second, be nice to well wishers, take names, notes, smile, don’t be vindictive, let it go. Get new cards printed. Update your wardrobe and yourself.
    Third, network like crazy and start deciding what you *really* want to do, make a plan, then go after it with fierceness and persistence. Success is the best revenge.
