    A recent wave of layoffs has left some very talented UX professionals unemployed and many others feeling anxious. Given that research and design are often among those functions cut early and deeply, that anxiety is reasonable. For the next installment of Rosenfeld’s Advancing Research Community call, we’re going to focus on layoffs—what to do if you’re worried, how to implement a strategy in preparation for potential job loss, and what to do if it happens to you. Join us for a Q&A with Career Strategist & Coach Amy Santee, and Corey Nelson, UX Design Manager and host of UX+1, a career coaching podcast.
