A viral TikToker, who frequently posts 'day in a life' vlogs working at Google, has shared her experience of being laid off.
In a clip that's racked up a staggering 4.2 million views, Nicole (@nicolesdailyvlog) was left stunned by the unexpected news. "The Google layoffs were not how I expected to start off 2023, but I know it’s only up from here," she wrote in the caption.
Nicole worked at Google as a Partner Services Programme Manager, according to her LinkedIn. But now, after the announcement Google's parent company Alphabet announced it was cutting 12,000 employees, Nicole has found herself jobless.
She claimed that her boss told her to check her emails. "I called my boss back and we just sobbed over the phone because she was also finding out about my layoff for the first time today too," Nicole said.
"I think the worst part is that it seems like no one was consulted on this decision and everyone was just finding out about the layoffs at the same time. It felt like a really bad game of Russian Roulette and there was no consistency around who was let go," she added.
