In this episode of the Anonymous Marketer podcast, host Nick Bennett and guest Kaylee Edmondson, VP of Revenue R&D at Refine Labs, delve into the topic of handling roles in times of uncertainty. They discuss the impact of layoffs, the concept of survivor’s guilt, and how to navigate changes in the workplace.
Kaylee shares her personal experience of leaving her previous role and how building a network on LinkedIn helped her land her dream job. She encourages everyone to start posting on social media and build a community as these relationships will help you adapt and swim through times of uncertainty.
The episode also explores the concept of survivor’s guilt and the importance of initiating conversations with management in the aftermath of layoffs. Kaylee emphasizes that layoffs are usually business decisions and not reflective of individual performance. She also discusses the potential need for change if the new arrangements post-layoffs do not align with an individual’s career goals or skills.
The conversation provides valuable insights for marketers navigating uncertain times, offering strategies for personal growth, networking, and adapting to changing roles.
