Time to start a new job search!

It’s amazing just how many different words you can find to say that someone has been fired. Businessinsider.com has collected 46 words.

So instead of saying that someone was fired, you can say:

S/he was dismissed / discharged / asked to go / released / sacked / asked to resign / given an opportunity to start a new job search immediately.

That last phrase is particularly crazy, don’t you think?
