    Happened to me twice but I was lucky enough to sense its coming and had offer in hand before they let me go. Need to be in the market all time, keep doing interviews and this is where LinkedIn is quite helpful.

      That's a great tip and happy that you were able to have offers prior. How can one sense a layoff coming their way?
