What was the last recession like? Who are the first to get laid off? How can we try and make sure it isn’t us?

The last recession likely isn't a good proxy due to the extreme severity. Its probably better to compare what happened in 2000 and 2001.

First to go are all temporary staff and consultants. These are easy and dont carry negative impact to the workforce. If that wasnt enough, then strategic decisions could be made on pulling out of failing business products, units, or markets (which will be even more negatively impacted during a downturn).

All other things being equal, overall reductions in workforce become based on merit, skill, and compensation. It's probably a blend of the three.

All you can do is work hard and prepare an exit strategy in case of the unexpected.

Hi All 🙂👋🏻
I joined IBM on 30 May 2022 but an still on bench.
I joined as a Microsoft Dynamics 365 F&O functional consultant and it seems like there are no F&O projects.

I got 2 calls for AX 2012(Older version of F&O) projects but having worked only in F&O, I do not want to switch to an older version of the ERP. And I had made this clear during my interview itself.

Is there any chance of getting fired? Its scaring me now to be honest.

Need your honest feedback everyone.

Has anyone been fired and then subsequently received unemployment? I was let go this week and am wondering if that is realistic to expect. Thanks!
