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!

Hi everyone,

I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations. 

I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks

Layoffs.fyi

As layoffs start ramping up. I’m getting pretty worried. Should I start trying to find a more recession proof industry to work in-house at (currently at an agency). Or should I double down on my efforts to look great at my agency so I’m less likely to get fired?
