If I have already submitted my applications but was unexpectedly laid off due to downsizing, what should I do?

I'm not sure you have to do anything now other than look for a new job. When you find the new job, let the schools know of your new employment. Obviously, if the schools asked you to inform them of changes in employment you should do so.

Good luck!

So I don't need to tell the schools unless they ask for it? I just don't want to run the risk that when they go to verify my information, I won't actually be an employee there anymore. Even though it was after I submitted.

As long as the information in the application was accurate when you submitted it and the schools have not asked you to update them about changes in your job status, you don't need to contact them.

How would I know if the schools have asked for job status changes? Should that be listed on the application somewhere? Thanks!

It would be on their application if they do.
