A little over one year out of college- asking older fishes how do I deal with worrying about being laid off and concentrating on doing good work at the same time?

Bud, relax. You’ll be fine, analysts are the safest. If it does happen one day, you’re a young, qualified, and capable person. You would have absolutely no trouble getting another gig! Chill out homie!

Always be looking for your next role. Not because you're afraid of getting the axe, but because you should know what opportunities are available to you.

Don’t focus on being laid off. Just focus on what you can control. If you do good work and are still laid off then it happens, but worrying about being laid off could negatively affect your work

For real? Sorry about it

If you think you’re doing good work, you shouldn’t worry about layoffs. Remember you’re not alone in your insecurities. If your company doesn’t have high bench tolerance, I would suggest to start applying for roles in other firms. Be more confident in your own strengths. Best of luck and I’m sure you’ll do great

There’s been rumors of Analysts being laid off too. I’m beyond shook right now. I’ve been on the bench for 4 weeks now and nothing in my OP is selling. I’ve just been working on internal initiatives and applying for other jobs so if it hits me at least I have something come through....

Keep your resume and LinkedIn up to date and your contact network active. Pad your bank account as much as you can. At your career level, finding another gig should be a piece of cake as you’re not too entrenched in a role or career path yet. All of that said, I’m crossing fingers for ya - it’s happened to me a couple of times with zero warning and it’s tough when it’s you, but you’ll get through it!

Is it any surprise we’re seeing mass layoff in tech? Years of rich friends hiring rich friends with no work ethic has lead us here.

The amount of people who worked for Meta, Apple, Amazon, etc for a few months / maybe a year is astounding. it’s around that time frame a boss can tell if you’re worth it

What's the best course of action when you find yourself at a job that's far more chaotic than you assessed while interviewing? Upon starting this job a couple of weeks ago, I discovered between the time I interviewed and my start date they had hired a new CEO, laid off all of their off-shore teams, changed my position to a new hiring manager, and added an on-call rotation to all engineering teams. None of this showed up in my research of the company or my interviews.
