Doubtful that clients are going be spending money anytime soon and even if they are, agencies will do whatever they can to overwork those they currently have so they don’t have to spend money on hiring people. I hope I’m wrong but I don’t see things improving for a very long time.

The PPP loans run out at the end of Sept. There will definitely be another round of layoffs.

Think it depends on whether or not people keep wearing masks and if schools that open will cause another big wave. Yep, looks like I’ll reserve my place in the bread line.

Not yet. We still need a vaccine. Or the virus to die off.

No. just slowing down until the next round.

I got laid off and will be removed from the firm's website soon. When a potential employer asks the question "why do you leave your current job", should I tell the truth? If I do, would they assume that I was underperforming even it is a massive layoff (like why me not my colleagues)? If I don't, the timing reveals it anyway so they may see me as dishonest. Any advice?

The 1,250 people #opentowork that were laid off from DoorDash today are unquestionably the most motivated, talented and scrappy bunch of tech workers on the planet, and I hope any company with open roles snaps them up in a heartbeat -- they do things better, faster, and in a more focused / prioritized way than you believe possible and will help you 10x your company.

For any of my colleagues impacted, my network is your network. 2nd connection, 3rd connection -- I am happy to be your advocate,

But today a peer told a staff as an immigrant She will have to more careful than someone who belong here on her actions cause actions may have negative consequences like she not able to be with family whereas he doesn’t. He also suggested that she needs to be careful as when layoffs happen that immigrant will be let go first.
