don't quit, negotiate a severance package insteadIf you’re reading this, you’re probably about ready to quit your job. Don’t quit until you read How to Engineer Your Layoff (affiliate link.) Sam blogs at Financial Samurai and has been coaching people on how to get a severance package while maintaining a good relationship with your soon-to-be-former employer. Even if you don’t like your job anymore, don’t walk away with nothing.

The Ideal Candidate

This is not a get rich quick scheme. If you like your co-workers and get along with your boss, but are just simply ready to move on, you could be the ideal layoff candidate. Do you fit one or more of the following descriptions?

  • Someone who has worked at their job for three or more years and over 10 years in the industry.
  • Someone who believes in her or his ability to produce income or find another job if necessary.
  • Someone who has good relationship with his/her superiors and coworkers.
  • Someone who is financially ready to face months or years of no income.

Step by step coaching

How to Engineer Your Layoff will teach you how to build a relationship with your HR manager and get him/her on your side. You’ll learn how to have a heart to heart talk with your own manager and make your case. It’s in your best interest to create a mutually beneficial solution for both you and your employer. There is a lack of material out there to help employees and this book put a little more power in your hands. Your employer and its HR department have a handbook on how to get rid of you with no severance pay. Why shouldn’t you have a little help in your corner too?

Case Studies

  • Lana transitioned from a bartender to a full time artist. Total Severance Value: $4,340
  • Julia, the marketing manager who became a stay at home mom. Total Severance Value: $67,460
  • Lyndon, the management consultant who had a midlife crisis. Total Severance Value: $171,102!
  • Jack, the investment banker who doesn’t feel he is fairly compensated. Total Severance Value: $507,717!

Obviously, if you are in a highly compensated position, you will have a better chance of coming out with a bigger severance package.  However, even if you are in an hourly position such as a bartender, you have some power too.

How much does this too good to be true book cost?

Here is the bottom line. How to Engineer Your Layoff costs $48. If you are thinking about leaving your job and have the time to implement the layoff strategies, then you need to read his book. $48 sounds expensive for an ebook, but you could be walking away with a $4,000 severance package like Lana the bartender instead of nothing. The high end of the severance package that Sam helped with was $500,00 for an investment banker! $48 is peanuts comparing to any kind of severance package and it’s worth it to learn what Sam has to teach. This book is for anybody who wants to retire early, change careers, go to graduate school, or simply take a hiatus.
