The Annual Layoff Immunization (Part 1 of 2)
- What do I need to have in case of a layoff?
- Where do I keep it?
- How often should I update my resume?
This week, we conclude our conversation on the Manager Tools Annual Layoff Immunization Guidelines.
"We received lots of comments and email regarding our show regarding the first rule of layoffs. While our recommendation struck some folks the wrong way - "finances rule??" - those who HAD been laid off told us we were dead solid perfect.
The fact is, we did not expect three years ago to get such positive responses to our casts and advice on careers and career management. We SHOULD have seen it, but we didn't (and you'll learn why in this week's cast). But we are listening, and thus this week's cast.
In the same way that "Finances Rule" when it comes to being laid off, PREPARATION makes the entire process so much easier. Both of these recommendations stem from a simple principle: decisions of import made under pressure are dangerous.
So, this week: our Annual Layoff Immunization Guidelines.
