You know that the economy is really bad when you learn that more than one person you know, it can be a family member, friend or acquaintance has lost their job. No matter who you talk to, it's likely that they know someone who was just laid off. I'm sure you also know someone who had been laid off. It is also the same situation in other countries. My college friend in Germany mentioned that they had to cut their hours in the manufacturing plant she works at because there are not enough orders coming in. This is so depressing, isn't it? Even IT jobs are not spared. I think the only job sector that is not affected is the medical field. Are you thinking of changing career paths because of this economic crisis?
