I had a panic attack yesterday because I heard more layoffs at work. Past 3 were women laid off in a company with already few of us and I was convinced I am next. They sponsor me so I may have to leave the country... feeling so low. Don’t know where to go next.

After 6 years of temporary contracts and unstable situations, I find my dream job in my dream company. All of a sudden the world goes upside down and I get laid off. I start sending hundreds of applications, with only 2 recruiters getting back to me to say I don’t have experience for the job (this is how it works in Italy). Add a terrible health situation in my family and it seems there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. Ugh. 😞

A friend was told their firm will cut ties EOY if certain things don’t improve. Friend had planned to quit in the next year anyway (to start their own business), so there is no real incentive to bend over backwards. Friend’s goal is to keep the income for a little longer, but to minimize conflict / headaches. What’s the best move here? Wait until EOY and take the severance? Give 6 / 9 / 12 months’ notice now? Is there such a thing as too much notice? Could too much notice backfire?

Hey guys,
Need an opinion. How do you think pwc ac banglore will be affected in case recession news comes true?

Please provide genuine thoughts. Also was there any layoffs during covid?
