Just curious, my LinkedIn feed is covered with updates of tech companies laying people off by the masses. Anyone seeing that in tech or any other industries?

I think what you are seeing is the right sizing of companies that went a little crazy with hiring during the pandemic. Reality is setting in and teams are realizing they were over staffed.

Also - many companies have been mismanaged. Those companies with poor revenue generating models are hitting reality that they need to make money. Fun tech is not enough.

And unfortunately tech is known for going a bit wild with misunderstanding their reality.

Hmm, in my circle, it's the finance companies that are hiring. I believe the first commenter's post though, a friend of mine was one of those who survived a re-org.

I, too, am noticing that a kind of recession is coming, and people from almost all types of industry are being laid off, be it tech, sales, manufacturing etc. So let’s hope for the best for ourselves.

It’s crazy seeing I posted this 3 weeks and ago and there has been so many more lays offs

I have been seeing massive layoffs everywhere. It seems like it is happening alot lately.

Hi everyone. I’m looking to change from my current employment and go back into the CS / CS management roles I’ve held before. The last 6-7 years I’ve been an EA for an addiction facility that led into also being a PA for the CEO’s, then that transitioned into household management for them. At this point, I want to get back into a more professional atmosphere & helping others. How do I do that when this is my most recent exp? Management is a few years back. Thanks guys!
