Not to be a debbie, but can anyone from the last recession tell me more about layoffs? When would you expect that to happen if things continue as is? And does what account you work on matter?

It's already happening. Can't tell you if the accounts you work on matter because that's something that will likely vary from company to company.

I’d say smaller shops, independents, those that focus more on regional and local work are the first hurt. It’s already happened at Tombras

I was in the industry in 2008/09. It does not usually matter the account necessarily. More about what the needs are and which employees have strength to deliver those. If your agency recently lost a large piece of business, or is not doing well do to the industry (travel and luxury, restaurants), the agency could be more at risk. For us we had loss a huge account at end of 2008, so we knew it was coming. My advice is you can't predict it, so continue doing your best work, and don't let it stress you out. My friends who were laid off, all ended back on the their feet

Love it. Thank you!
