Get fired from your job, and your first instinct may be to call a lawyer. But wait, there could be a Caribbean cruise in it for you. Mark Jen, who made headlines earlier this year after Google fired him for blogging, has teamed up with the job site SimplyHired to launch SimplyFired. Visitors are invited to submit their funniest, saddest or most outrageous stories about getting fired or laid off (deadline Aug. 26). The story judged best will win a cruise on “The Apprentice” Legend Cruise in the company of cast members fired on the Trump TV show.
