86: Where are they now: Jay Beech on being Laid Off twice in 5 Months
Show Notes

Today’s episode is part of my series ‘Where are they now’ to check up on how some of my past guests are getting on and how sometimes the best laid plans can go differently.

And today I am speaking with Jay Beech. Jay was a guest on the show back in June 2021 on episode 38 titled ‘From Redundancy to 8 job offers in 2 weeks’’ and we had chatted a month or so after his #HireJayBeech campaign which went viral on TikTok and LinkedIn. Then, in Oct 2021, just 5 months later, he was unfortunately laid off again. His #HireJayBeech sequel was born and Jay started his new gig pretty quickly.

In this episode, Jay shares with us how he navigated: 
-another layoff so quickly after the last one,
-an ADHD diagnosis while dealing with the above
-how he selected his current employer and how the process was different from last time
-how he handles trolls
-and how leaning in to being himself has attracted unprecedented opportunities and changed his career and life.
