Since oil prices plummeted many companies in the industry were forced to shut down a variety of sites and operations.

 Many people who work in the Oil and Gas industry have experienced being laid off once or twice and during those times it can make life very difficult. 

Two of my friends have been laid off this week at two different sites with two different careers. 

Are there any ways you can make getting laid off more manageable?
