Layoffs hit hard

Really hard. You know the devastation they cause. And that's why thousands of employers and state Rapid Response Teams include Surviving a Layoff in their separation packets.

In 48 easy to read pages it offers hope, a plan, and all the tools your people need to manage their careers, their finances, and and their lives.

Surviving a Layoff is NOT a 300-page textbook.
It’s the size of a news magazine. Your people can read the entire text in an hour or so and get started right away. It’s easy to read, easy to use, it won’t overwhelm the reader—but it can change their lives.

It’s also the national best seller—and it’s affordable.
At 25 copies, they’re only $3.10 each.

Look what’s included—

  • Help your people ease the stress and disappointment of losing their jobs—and minimize thoughts of retaliation.
  • Four simple ways to manage their bills so they can focus on their  job hunt—not the bill collectors.
  • Just fill in the blanks to write a one-page resume showing that they are the solution to the hiring managers’ needs.
  • Seven ways to get job interviews—step by step.
  • How to sidestep heavy competition and win job interviews and job offers with little or no competition—and move off the unemployment rolls quickly.
  • Make a great impression by showing a little personality and answering 50 tough interview questions with ease.
  • How to explain a long-term unemployment to future hiring managers—and so much more.
