Recently you are spammed with exclusive negative news from finance and working perspective right? It sweaves a dense network and pushes heavy pressure on anyone - those who have got a job fears they will lose them, while the restful peers worry the doors to any job is closed, or at least narrower than any other time.
Maybe I am too pessimistic? It sounds however reasonable to me to get well prepared for a lasting crisis - by the means of setting up more communicative network, getting myself trained and eventually expertised in my fields, and working harder to seize any potential working chance.
The experience of those big thumbs suggests us the worst time is meanwhile the best time, so I am not worried, put it accurate, I am motivated.
