Job loss is an experience many have gone through at one time or another. You might say I’m a bit of a vet at being terminated since it’s happened to me a few times. I hold the enviable status of losing my job right as the Great Recession of 2008 kicked off. This led to me being long-term unemployed for two years.

“Getting Canned” is a blog side project I created as an outlet to vent about work life and job loss. “Getting Canned” seeks to bring ideas on ways to prosper with the next job. Or ditching office work entirely. If I can make a bit of cash on the side that will be nice too.
