About

“Getting Canned” is a blog side project I created mostly as an outlet to vent about work life.  It’s a place to document the experience of getting fired from your place of employment along with all the fun that happens afterward.

Getting terminated from your job is an experience I imagine 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 getting canned in the Great Recession of 2008.   This led to me being long-term unemployed for two years.

“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.

Feel free to drop me a line below if you have anything you want to share.

Send me a story about getting fired and it may be published.
