It was cool to see my friend on the Huffington Post. Looks like this was her third article there: 50 Google Searches to Avoid a Layoff or Bad Employer
As you look through Susan’s 50 suggestions, it looks kind of dooms-dayish and depressing. You are looking for bad news or dirt on a company.
Before I was laid off I saw and read the proverbial “writing on the wall.” But I just didn’t believe it. It wasn’t believable until the moment I heard, over the phone, that I was being laid off.
It just seemed surreal. It seemed like a bad dream. “It couldn’t happen to me,” I thought.
But it could, and it did. The writing was there, real, and true.
If you think you see writing on the wall you might have it confirmed by a few of Susan’s 50 search suggestions. (But if you don’t get any results from those search queries, it doesn’t mean that your gut instinct is wrong)
