Just got off a conference call with my company and was gutted to learn they will be downsizing the company by 50%!. The current field I'm in depends heavily on industries that want to expand ... basically geophysical exploration (ie: looking for precious minerals). Plus we are heavily dependent on companies that are located in North America, which makes this situation really $hitty. They haven't mentioned people yet, but I'm fairly certain I'm in the loosing bracket ... being a relatively new hire and all.
I'm pretty depressed and somber about all this and just wanted to find a place to moan and gripe about the jacked up situation I'm in ... maybe I should start looking for a new career as a panhandler.
Anyone else In a similar position because of the economy?
