Over the weekend, I had the good fortune of being a guest on Tyrone Griffin’s “Bunny Slippers are Evil” podcast. I think I ran my mouth too much, but my information seemed to be well-received (and I had a good time to boot).
Tune in to hear how I survived a layoff in the 2008 recession and a second one in 2011. In both cases I found work pretty fast using the principals I discuss on the show. Tune in to see what I mean and please, do share this blog post with someone that could use the advice. Thanks!
