Working Code Podcast – Episode 114: Carol Got Laid Off

Published: February 15, 2023

Amid the frenzy of industry lay-offs, we here at the Working Code podcast were devastated to hear that our very own Carol Weiler has been affected by a down-turning real estate market. A few weeks ago, while attending a virtual All Hands meeting, her Slack account was suddenly locked, momentarily followed by her computer. It turns out that she, along with a majority of her engineers, were part of an unexpected reduction in force (RIF). On today’s show, Carol graciously and courageously joins us to talk about her experience, the ensuing emotional roller coaster, and some of the fascinating steps that she’s taken to help improve her outcome.

We love you Carol! You continue to inspire us—and our listeners—every week!

All that and more on this week’s show:
