Introducing The Rapid Guide to Layoff Survival
In 2007, over 1.5 million people in the U.S. lost their jobs due to mass layoffs according to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics.
If you are employed with a program that provides resources and assistance to persons that have been laid off, you already know the impact a layoff can have on a person – it is one of the most stressful experiences in life. The financial and emotional impact can seem overwhelming, and it affects their family and loved ones, too.
What are you providing to help them cope with this situation? Would you like to have a resource to provide these people in a proven-successful format that helps them view the layoff as a positive opportunity and keeps them focused on their future?

The Rapid Guide is a valuable and cost effective way for our office to market our services and provide students with a substantial tool that they will keep and use for a long time. Previous to distributing Rapid Guides, we simply used copied handouts that were tossed away almost as soon as the student received them.
We intend to expand the use of the Rapid Guide to not only graduating seniors, but to first year students during orientation, workshops and students enrolled in our Career Exploration courses. We plan to re-order the Rapid Guides again next year.
