So what’s the deal? All these layoffs are freaking me out. Seems like it’s not a good time to jump to a new gig at all????? But sooo many open positions. But sooo many layoffs and taking back offers or positions going on hold. What in the world is going on????? Shall we just stay put for now? Seems like it was just the grass is greener on the other side deal.
