Why are companies creating artificial layoffs and recession?
It makes sense for companies whose stock are hit but even the companies raking profits are firing people.
Is it the aftermath of elon musk fiasco

It's more of a consolidation phase. After a few years of aggressive hiring, companies tend to do layoffs. Musk fiasco may be a trigger point.

My now former employee suddenly laid off over 40 US staff remembers yesterday. The way it all happened was very out of the blue and somewhat backhanded. The new head of the marketing department spent weeks reassuring people their positions were safe and then went on to only retain the staff that she hired. She also made a point to get access to the former staff’s resources for their programs. Anyway, any advice about how to navigate the job search these days?

Hi Doordash 🐠, has there been discussions of layoffs? Is DD planning on doing any? Thanks, from a potential hire

I’ve been trying to land a new job for a few months because my current one is toxic and job security is super low (2 RIFs already this year), but feel completely deflated knowing there are thousands of talented people joining the job hunt now. I know I should be grateful I have a job for now, but if I get laid off I’m totally worried about finding a gig – it’s been hard. I’m not going to get 3-4 months of severance and I have a family and mortgage too!
