My THE Ohio State University fandom took a hit in this “Paul”Cast  because my guest – Patrick Lynch – got his undergrad at that school up north and then doubled down getting his MBA at its little sister, the Spartans. (O – H…)

When I started these “Paul”Casts I wanted to dig into advice people wished they had received early in their career. Pat sent me a note and suggested we talk about “outplacement services.” Go figure – that’s what Pat’s company does. I’ll be honest, at first I thought I’d pass because that discussion didn’t seemed to be one focused on advice to help a career. But the more I thought about it the more I thought a person early in their career may not think they need the help of outplacement services. I know I didn’t. So for all you folks new to a career… layoffs are more common and no one is immune. Hope this quick 20 minutes will convince you take advantage of the services you’re offered if you ever find yourself in this position.
