kk

SAN FRANSICO: Most global companies have recently taken the step of mass layoffs as part of solving the financial crisis. Among these, massive layoff took place at Google. Google laid off around 12,000 employees. Even those who performed well were dismissed in this way. But Henry Kirk, a former employee of Google who lost his job, did not give up. Henry lost his job as a senior manager at Google.

Instead of being sad about losing his job, Henry Kirk opened a design-development studio in San Francisco along with his six ex-colleagues. Henry posted this on LinkedIn.

“I’ve always been a big believer that hard work and results will get you far in life. While this event may place doubt in that belief, it is my experience that these life challenges present unique opportunities.

Today, I’m taking a leap forward and turning this tragedy into an opportunity. I’m teaming up with 6 outstanding ex-googlers to shape and own our futures.”, he wrote.
