Today it was announced by several companies that they would be laying off workers–Home Depot (7000), Sprint (8000), and Caterpillar (20,000). That’s a lot of jobs. So it’s easy to look at those numbers and panic (especially because those numbers have been popping up frequently over the past couple months–and will probably continue to do so for the next few months).
But don’t panic.
For those of you that just lost your job, ILostMyJob was made for you; there’s a plethora of material on the site that can help you cope and manage your search for a new job. And for those of you that still have your job–there’s plenty of advice on keeping it.
Things are going to get worse before they get better. But they are going to get better.
