TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
My last lay-off (earlier this year) was interesting. My lay-off was a
sensitive issue since: a) it was a small dot-com and b) my wife worked
there. Since I was being let go, and my wife wasn't, I was given a lot of
freedom that day that others were not. I was told to take my time, wander
around and say any good-byes that I wanted, and basically hang out until
lunch when my boss and I went for lunch.
My wife's boss (a great guy who was later let go hmself) told her to take
the afternoon off and go home with me.
The lay-off itself went very well, although the week leading up to it was
handled very poorly.
