One of the Coolest Things I’ve seen in a while.

Construx to Offer Free Training to Laid-Off Software Developers

This is a total win-win.

Laid off people get some training to keep themselves sharp when they’re not working, and a recent line item to put on their resume.

Construx gets some additional brand awareness/mind share/word of mouth (just think of all of those resumes going out to their target market). They also get the advantage of filling up their classes at a hard time to do so. Trainings like theirs (I’ve been to many) work better with a critical mass of participants.

Here’s hoping other companies will do creative things like this.
