I just accepted an offer and I'm about to transition from one tech giant to another. I'm a little nervous about all the rumors of hiring freezes and the incoming recession. I don't want to find myself in a “last hire first fire” position. Any advice?

Most companies are not going to invest in the hiring, onboarding and training just to let you go first. Poor performers (sales) who are on PIP would be the first to go, if there are layoffs at all. I’d be more concerned about an offer being rescinded due to hiring freezes.

No, I don’t but I see chatter about it at other companies.

Back yourself and be confident, they chose you for a reason. Be the guy you were during the interview process and you’ll be fine. I just started a new job after being at 1 place for 7 years so I know exactly how it feels. Ask your boss upon joining on what their vision for the initiative is and what success looks like for your role and play to that

Nothing will make me work harder than hearing these kinds of stories!

My start date is early next month and the team I got hired onto is the number 2 overall initiative so I’m kinda confident they won’t rescind the offer. But definitely worried about learning the ropes at a new company and staying clear of a PIP.

I will say that in 2020, my company hired a guy in May and another one in June and come October, they did a massive round of WFRs and both guys were laid off and given severance. This was in field sales and they weren’t doing bad at all. I would know because I was on the selling team as well.
