Posted on

New Delhi: 2022 is a bloodbath of mass layoffs, but the start of 2023 has already created mayhem. More than 50,000 people were let go by Amazon, Twitter, Google, Salesforce and more than 90 other tech corporations around the world. Techies who were previously happy with the high pay and positive work environment of their jobs are now worried about the future. The recruitment market is almost closed or constrained amid massive layoffs.

Even people who are re-hired after being fired are not protected because they are still at risk of losing their jobs in the future. In the last four months, an IT professional was fired from three different companies. ,Also read: IT layoffs 2023: Tech giants are laying off around 3000 employees every day in January,

A software developer revealed that, after joining the company two months ago, he was let go by Google in a widely circulated post on anonymous workplace app Blind. However, with the recent spate of layoffs in the IT industry, this is not the first time he has been sacked.

“I think the hire date is a pretty solid indicator of layoffs when dealing with thousands of employees, but I’m unsure of what to do at this point. I’ve been really fortunate to have had many up to this point. There have been overlapping breaks, but I should find work quickly” said in his post on Blind.

So he lost three jobs in the last four months. Even though they received several forms of severance money, their future prospects are uncertain, much like other workers who have recently lost their jobs. “Are big IT companies still hiring? Should I wait a few months and give it another shot in the summer? Go to startups?”

I’m not sure whether it’s worth looking for work because it looks like no matter what, I will inevitably be fired as a new recruit” he continued to write.
