In the summer of 2019, I had to close my company and lay off my entire team. It felt terrible.
From that point on, I vowed to create a better support system for people that find themselves laid off. I started building Silver Lining in November 2019 - initially as a way to connect talent with top companies, and later developing into a supportive community for people affected by COVID layoffs.
Through this journey I have connected with 1,000s of people in career transition to learn about some of the key challenges job seekers are facing, and help me shape my mission.
I am pushing for a paradigm shift. A move away from today's dehumanizing process of looking for a new job. Of applying online incessantly. Of not talking to a soul.
By joining this community, you will not only have access to a supportive group, but also to tools and resources that encourage this paradigm shift by helping you land a job without applying.
