If your LinkedIn feed is like mine, every day, there are more and more people announcing they were laid off.

The era of markets driven by job hunters, power has shifted, especially for knowledge workers and other white-collar professionals.

For now, these people are still finding work.

What usually happens is the music slows down and then abruptly stops leaving someone or some group of people without chairs.

Last year, I saw the first signs of the music slowing.

For professionals and knowledge workers, it is about to stop.

If you have a network of relationships on LinkedIn, even if you don’t know the person, share the layoff announcement in your feed.

Using the hashtag #IHELP will help to make the person’s post easily locatable using the hashtag.

For many of you, there but for the grace of G-d go I.

I hope it doesn’t happen to you. It may.

The music is close to stopping.

Let’s get these people a chair.
