Hello, Layoff-Aid community.
COVID-19 has the Bay Area sheltered in place, and changed the world since our last newsletter just weeks ago. Many are understandably worried about their health, the safety of their communities, and of course, jobs for them and for their families. Some advice from the family sage that I thought worth sharing: “take one day at a time.”
For years, I have been harping that layoffs in tech are a normal part of a healthy ecosystem, even in a strong market. But, for the first time since Layoff-Aid started operating in 2017, we have a truly turbulent market.
So, we now want to accelerate our efforts to provide benefits to our job-seekers. We are working on a couple of ideas and would welcome suggestions. Don’t be a stranger if you think of anything that would benefit our job-seekers!
Without further ado, a new batch of talent.
