Good advice from SurvivalBlog:
"The coming years will be difficult ones, globally. If you are at risk of a layoff, then hedge your bets by developing a second stream of income, now. And if you are laid off, do not hesitate. Do whatever it takes to find steady work, even if means moving, or taking a lower-paying job. Don't just wallow in self-pity and draw unemployment insurance. Be proactive and do something!"
