Reducted: Surviving the Pink Slip Apocalypse

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ATTENTION: This session requires advance signup to attend. For Online Schedule: Please utilize the RSVP link below the description to reserve your seat. For SXSW GO App: Use the RSVP 'Find a Timeslot' link. You must have a SXSW Interactive, Gold, or Platinum badge to attend, and, you must have an activated SXsocial account (social.sxsw.com) to reserve a seat.

The end is near. It may not be zombies, aliens, plague or epic natural disaster, but losing your job will just as surely put you in emergency mode. Like prepping for the apocalypse, no matter what form the end takes – reductions in staff, a boss with a grudge or your company hitting rock bottom – the keys to survival are the same. "But things are going so well," you say. "I do good work, they'd never get rid of me!" You're delusional, my friend. Like it or not layoffs are par for the course in the tech world, and most employees aren't prepared for what comes next. Learn to read the signs and survive impending doom.
