Do you think that companies publicly ensuring job security would help during times like this for the economy? I’m seeing talks of layoffs everywhere and don’t see how this will encourage spending.

How can anyone promise job security though? If clients don’t pay our firms anything for a couple of months because they are hoarding cash to meet their own payrolls, how would our firms pay us? Seems like any promise would be empty.

I’d prefer honesty and reality opposed to empty promise. No one knows how this will end, it seems to be asking a lot for a promise of no layoffs right now 🤷🏼‍♂️

I’ll loose my job soon due to covid and live at the other side of the world so flying back home is not an option. I’m ok staying here as the city is amazing but all agencies have a hiring freeze until the end of the year.
I need to make money. I also need to get my head around the situation. Any inspirational suggestions would be helpful and much appreciated.

Hi fishes,
I was unfortunate in ongoing layoff. I also got impacted. I was a part of DLTLabs Pvt. Ltd. for 1 year. It was good journey where I learnt a lot. I changed from learner to position where I am helping other and have some dependencies. I started from small debugging to take ownership of a full module.
It is difficult time for me and for who got layoff but I am excited for new opportunity.

A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.
