  • Very timely and sage advice! I would offer that we should think this way even if we haven't been laid off, but maybe you're contemplating a change in life. This is so relevant for college grads, the advice provided here can be applied today. Know what's important and why (bills, saving, dinners). Know who's important and why (family, friends, network - vertical and horizontal). Know what you really care about - passion (it will change over time, but have passion).

    All the best on your future...

  • Thanks everyone for sharing such wonderful thoughts. I agree with all of them. I was laid off twice and did not know it then, but looking back, I believe most if not all of those advises were at work for me and got me through.

  • I have worked as an administrative law judge in the unemployment area. Ironically, with the improved employment picture my services are no longer needed. There is no shame in collecting unemployment when you are unemployed through no fault of your own. The unemployment check will pay your rent and give you some income while you are looking for a job. Few future employers will hold it against you and in the entertainment business it is part of the on and off again work style. You don't have to brag about it, but please consider it. Many prominent people have had periods when they collected unemployment. If I would have had an employment service right next to my courtroom when I was an ALJ I could have sent great candidates over to it every week.
