OP- you cannot do a lot about the economy. The way to get past the fear is to have a plan. Good network in and out consulting, skills kept up. Invest wisely, spend frugally, and a solid emergency fund. Then you can sleep at night no matter what is happening.

Huge layoffs everywhere in 2008-9

There were RIFs for lowest maybe 15% performers in 2006, 2007, bigtime 2008, and 2009. Once stimulus/TARP/Dodd Frank passes consulting got really busy again really fast.

Our industry is not exactly cyclical - or at least not on the same cycle as the rest of the economy. I was actually hired during 2008, and I don't think we had attrition beyond expected at the time. What gives you the idea we are close to another recession?

2002 had heavy layoffs and rescinded offers. However the industry is so much different now I am not sure how instructive that is.

I would think that there's enough foresight to have planned for things. Plus, there is an investment into specific areas, tech for example, more so than others. So, it seems to me layoffs are contingent on many factors that deal with the internal economics of the company, not the external factors of the country.

Anyone else been through something like this?

Hi all, I’m wrapping up my first year in audit and am looking to a potential exit in sales - I have my CPA exams passed but don’t have the 1 year experience quite yet. I have a final round interview for an entry level SaaS sales role with a first year base of ~75k and 20-30k in commissions assuming I meet my targets. I have a feeling if I secure the position, I won’t be able to delay the start date before I hit my 1 year experience mark. I want the credential but don’t want to pass this up.
