“I was affected by Google’s layoffs today, and I know that I am just one out of hundreds of fellow extremely talented individuals who have been affected this year in this job market. As the sole provider to my very tiny family, I must be strong, and I must move quickly as time is against me,” wrote DeCollibus on LinkedIn.

Here’s what people are saying about this post:

An individual wrote, “As a fellow sole provider for a small family (me, my disabled mom, and disabled sister), I can’t express how sorry I am. At 28, I feel like I’ve taken the role of a parent somewhat. I went from being a relatively carefree 22-year-old college student who couldn’t cook anything to learning to use pressure cookers and air fryers to prepare meals for my mom after her accident. I can’t even imagine how it must have been to work at Google. I’ve applied some 18 times and never once have made it beyond the resume screening.” (Also Read: ‘Privileged’: Indian-origin director of Google news sacked after 13 years of service)

A second shared, ” I don’t know who you are, and I don’t know how you work, but that doesn’t matter, I give you all the support so that soon you will be the person who hires all of us who are in your same situation right now. Success soon!”

“Jobs come and go, Vanessa is always who she is. GOOD luck, and use some time to chill a bit. Soon you will find yourself busy working, so till then spoil yourself with the things you didn’t have time for,” posted a third.

A fourth commented, “I am so sorry you were impacted! It sounds like you were a really great addition to the culture at Google. I so hope you find something new swiftly!”
