Two people I know got fired recently. One is a friend; the other is a foe. I find it a bit disconcerting that companies will fire you just weeks away from Christmas. I feel like companies will have you around, and then will look for reasons to can you when they don’t want you around anymore. Maybe they want to save on your salary; maybe they don’t want your “attitude” around anymore. My own fear is getting turfed; your reputation is shot after you get fired. It’s humiliating. But it happens to the best and worst of us.
