Wall Street Journal launches “Laid Off and Looking” blog

According to and WSJ: “WSJ startes a new blog called ‘Laid Off and Looking’ and it follows eight out of work professionals (with MBAs) who are trying to find new jobs in this post-meltdown world. They hold MBAs from the likes of Kellogg, Harvard, UCLA and more. They range in age from 27 to 59 and have worked in finance (Lehman Bros, Bear Stearns, BofA), real estate and even in some tried-and-true type firms. They’re recounting their searches and the ups and downs of finding work. We’ll offer advice from career experts one day a week, too. We hope it will help others in the same situation.”

(Update 12-03-2008) comment: Laid Off and Looking = LOL (means that laid off people are full of optimism); sounds like we have a new brand!

  1. People always hate to talk about when they are laid off. But as it has become every day’s news headline since Yahoo started it with cutting 1500 of its task force last year, now a need of platform has been in demand where people can express their selves in words how they are feeling about their company, whey the got laid off was that justified or not.
    And every thing they want to tell anonymously.And is providing you that platform.
