Event Details

The fastest cars in the world go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds or less. As a passenger in that vehicle, you might feel anxious, out-of-control, even terrified. That is the most apropos illustration I can think of to describe the loss of a job. Within five seconds, you may go from employed to unemployed, leaving you nervous, confused, embarrassed, and at a loss for words. As a 20-year veteran of the information technology field, after experiencing a third time, my racecar engine sputtered and stalled. Without a plan to survive a job layoff, under the stress of financial pressures and self-doubts, I became depressed. I felt I had hit rock bottom, but as I thought about my situation, I knew things could get worse if I did not act. I became determined to find answers for my problems. However, I wanted to find them for others, as well. I began researching available resources, programs, and tips to figure out how to survive a job layoff. As a result, I authored Getting Beyond the Day™ - Your Guide to Surviving a Job Layoff to provide people who are unemployed or underemployed with tools to help manage their careers, families, and life demands so regardless of the country's economic state they could develop a plan for a stable life. – Nicole Antoinette

The news of her third job layoff left Nicole Antoinette frustrated and depressed, but she was determined to turn the event into a positive experience. A single parent with bills due, no medical insurance, a dependent entering college, a small home-based business, and a mortgage to pay, she refused to consider borrowing money from family and friends. She needed to figure out how to get beyond the day. After a month of aggressively searching for a job, she learned that her skills needed updated and that was hindering her from securing employment.

She thought about how difficult it is for loyal, hardworking employees to accept a layoff without taking it personally. She concluded that since birth we had been told the “who, what, when, where, why, and how” in life. When we were born, our pediatricians gave our parent(s) a schedule (a plan) to follow as we grew. Then in elementary school, our teachers gave us a curriculum (a plan) for us to follow to successfully move to the next grade. Then in high school, our teachers gave us a curriculum (a plan) to reach graduation. After graduation, we were told to 1) get a job, 2) attend college, 3) attend a trade school, or 4) go into the military. Once on the job, in college, in trade school, or in the military, we were told the “who, what, when, where, why, and how” (a plan) to be successful as adults. Then when the news of a layoff, firing, or downsizing, etc. hits, we believe are identity is gone. Our “plan” no longer exists. There is no doctor, no teacher, no parent, no instructor, no college professor, no military officer, no boss to give us the plan (the “who, what, when, where, why, and how”).


She realized she was in need of a new plan. As she began digging for tools and resources, she documented her findings. From that research, Getting Beyond the Day - Your Guide to Surviving a Job Layoff began to take shape. In addition, Nicole Antoinette designed a two-hour workshop that coincides with the book, providing the unemployed and underemployed with resources and tools to develop a plan to manage their career, family, and life demands. The workshop will help attendees 1) Identify resources related to their career, family, and life, 2) Develop a strategy (roadmap) to go from unemployed to employed, and 3) Understand the “why” of unemployment, “what” to do, and “how” to move forward. The workshop outlines the following:


  • Job Search Techniques
  • Networking
  • Jobs and Occupations
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Education
  • Training


  • Housing
  • Healthcare


  • Income Alternatives
  • Fight another Fight to Dream another Dream™

Attendees of the workshop will leave feeling inspired, challenged, and empowered. Here are a few comments from past attendees:

The workshop exceeded my expectations and actually made me do some re-evaluation of my career, my goals, and my expectations of people in my life. In the words of Arsenio Hall, it makes you go “Hmmmm.” – Marcus, Information Technology Director


I would recommend this to everyone, not just those who are out of work, but also those who have been working for years and are unhappy with their jobs. This could be the push some people need to move on to the position of their dreams. – Laurice, Social Services Director


Only $20.00includes workshop, workshop material, and your own copy of the book Getting Beyond the Day - Your Guide to Surviving a Job Layoff - by Nicole Antoinette.
