The Coronavirus has landed, and our economy is suffering.
We’re in an awkward time right now where nobody wins: it’s a terrifying time to be elderly due to the risk of contracting the fatal COVID19 virus, but it’s an equally terrifying time for younger members of the workforce who are helplessly watching the economy tank despite how hard they attempt to work from their tiny (but overly priced) apartments. Layoffs over Zoom are becoming a “thing,” and there was a record number of unemployment insurance claims made just last week in the entire history of our nation.
Now that I’ve adequately sobered you up, you need to understand that it’s very likely that this economic situation can easily go from “concerning” to “terrible” at the drop of a hat if it’s not already there. Expect layoffs, and expect that you might even be the one to get laid off—whether or not you’re prepared for it is completely irrelevant. Consider this your warning, and have a healthy dose of fear if your boss ever asks you for an unexpected Zoom meeting on a Friday.
The only thing you can do is be prepared. That’s why we’re letting you know how easy it is for you to forward all your G Suite work emails to your personal email address, ensuring that you can at least keep access to your emails (and most likely the contacts or project details that might help keep your livelihood afloat) in your possession, despite the eventuality that you might be let go.
Take a look at how easy it is to set up with Multi Email Forward by cloudHQ:
We hope you don’t need to use this because you’re about to get laid off, but it’s always a good idea to have an insurance policy given today’s economic climate.
Just go to the Google Chrome Webstore and install the Multi Email Forward Chrome extension, and follow the prompts.
You can also read this support note to understand how each of your emails will be perfectly delivered to you when migrating your email to your new email address. I hope this service helps you stay a little more confident with your future options, regardless of your employment situation.
