Already laid-off? Bought out? Share your advice!

A reader is looking for Gannettoids who were recently laid off or bought out, to help current employees about to lose jobs in the newspaper division layoff now underway. “Any advice at all — from the spiritual/psychological to the extraordinarily practical and everything in between,” the reader said in a comment last night.

For example, the reader wants to know how to:

  • Behave on the day of layoffs
  • Deal with former co-workers
  • Get out of bed the next morning and soldier on
  • File for unemployment
  • Freelance/do whatever they found before landing a new job

Please post your replies in the comments section, below. To e-mail confidentially, write gannettblog[at]gmail[dot-com]; see Tipsters Anonymous Policy in the green sidebar, upper right.
