Part of this process is putting in the extra effort when you get laid off. That's what Melissa Pereira is doing. I worked with Melissa some years back in Sun marketing. She's in New York now, and she found herself in the Wall Street Journal and on Good Morning America (absolutely unbelievable) for her extra effort. She's doing an unpaid internship in the city to retool her skills so she can take advantage of new opportunities. She's not just sitting around waiting for something to happen. She's making it happen. Cool.
