Well I knew it was probably going to happen but I was hoping it wouldn't, yesterday the bank that I work for made an announcement to its employees that they will be cutting the workforce by 22% (300 employees) within the first and second quarter of 2009. Today they will be releasing a press conference publicly announcing the cutback. I've yet to find out whether or not I will continue having a job here, but I've got my fingers crossed as im not particularly thrilled about being back on the job market in these times, or standing in a record setting unemployment line. *sigh* Most of the jobs lost are in California I believe so I was starting to wonder, how many here have been directly affected by the economy in the US? I'm kinda sitting here wondering whether I should worry and start putting my resume out there now, or wait until there is a definitive answer as to who is going to be out of a job.
