LayOffers.com is a brand new community site that tracks layoffs to support workers and connect job candidates with top recruiters at no cost. Tech executive, Jeffrey Jewett, founded the service in early 2020 with a mission to help one million displaced workers.
Jewett accelerated its launch in light of the economic uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The site went live on April 6 and now tracks hundreds of layoff events with thousands of recruiters and candidates joining the site, and over 10,000 new jobs added.
