Preparing for the Layoff
Lining up job references
If you’re going to be back in the job-search, you are going to need references who can strongly make your case, especially if you are laid off.
As with your network, now is the time to chat with people who have served as references for you in the past and reconnect with them.
It’s also important to determine who among your co-workers, bosses, or clients might be strong additions to your job-search reference list.
Remember to always ask people if they are willing to serve as a reference.
