Thread regarding Humana Inc. layoffs

How hard is it to get a job?

Any chance people who were laid off in one of the previous rounds still check this site?

I'm wondering how hard it was for you to find a new job? I'm pretty sure my days here are numbered, and it's been a while since I had to interview, so I have no idea what to expect.

Are there available jobs or is it the same all around? Any info would be great.

I was impacted in the past round, I am not an RN it took about 3 months to find something. I really think it depends on the time of the year you are looking. Just be prepared and personal suggestion look outside the company.

I was a PHC and found work fairly quickly. I had a lot of experience and it really helped. Good Luck!

I was part of the May layoffs and it took me nearly 6 months. (PHC). There aren't many WAH jobs (with my background/skills anyway), and my newer job is not. I'd start as soon as you can getting resume, etc. in order. You can certainly find a job, but I was not willing to settle for low pay or terrible hours, so I kept interviewing. Lots of phone and virtual interviews before an in-person interview these days...(not as bad after you've done one or two, but be prepared for it). Agree with the poster above, RN, BSN etc. are much more marketable. But to anyone facing RIF or still looking from past RIFs, hang in there. I was very careful with severance and my finances, and hung in there to find a really good job. Get and stay updated and active on LinkedIn and any job sites. Connect to people who have been laid off...we've been helping each other, especially with moral support and keeping our eyes open for each other. NETWORK! Have someone or several people really look hard at your resume and L/I profile. Tell everyone you know you're looking. Best to anyone still looking or soon-to-be looking. It was not as scary as I'd imagined...but you gotta do the work as early as you can to be ready. If you are laid off, take online courses to stay sharp and keep relevant. BEST and good luck!

For a phc, it will depend on what you were doing before Humana. I was able to get a job, but I was a manager before, had managerial experience, and was able to get back into it without sacrificing pay.

Depends on your background and what you are looking to do. For me personally, I was always good at landing jobs, others may not feel the same way. Good luck!

Much much easier for nurses to find a job. More interested in PHCs and CHEs who found work

I just started. I am a nurse. I have placed 7 applications, had one interview so far. Really just starting to look seriously. I am not laid off but do not feel confident enough in Humana to stay.

I was included in the last round of lay-offs. I applied to a few rolls and one eventually stuck but the interview process for that one was really long and had lots of steps. I found that there were lots of positions available, however many of them were director/consultant roles, which limits you if you are not qualified for either of those.

I was laid off during the last RIF. I found a job in 2 weeks from my lay off date. My start date is next week. Best to really start looking now. I actually started looking 2 months prior to the lay off. I also took a lot of time to go over my resume and I had a couple of recruiters help me fix my resume prior to my search. So all in all, it took me about 3 months. 1 month to fully prepare my resume, the 30 second speech and really figure out my brand and how to market myself. Then another 2 months of interviews and applications prior to actually landing a new position. After working for Humana for so long, it was really difficult to find something because my Humana skill set was so specific and it made it difficult to find something similar without the RN license. I did find that being an LPN, RN or BSN was far more marketable for telecommute or field case management (specific to HEDIS, Medicare and Population/Disease Management). If you have a CCM with the RN license you are very marketable. Otherwise, it is going to be very difficult to stay in the industry without it, unless you have another skill to offer (i.e. Sigma Six, healthcare analytics, etc.). It would be good to hear what others are finding while on the job hunt. Good Luck to you! Wish you all the best!
