P5- the banks are ahead of us as far as "canaries in the mine" go. They started laying people off back in November while we were just implementing hiring freezes. As far as industry goes, we're ahead of them. It's a matter of time before F500 firms (non-banks) start announcing mass layoffs and restructuring. This is a good time to go to school as job prospects are diminishing and debt is cheap
