The Unemployment Line: COVID-19 Edition

Yo. I've got an active account, and very active company on that app. Doom and gloom is most of what you see, but most of it is younger folks with no perspective.

Consulting, generally speaking, does well in a downturn. There are some service lines that take a hit, but others pick up. Since consulting is all people based, they don't lay people off unless there's just no work to give them, and no hope of getting any. Its far cheaper to keep folks on board than to transition them out and hire more later.

We shouldn't be affected in the short term. If the recession ends up going long with no sign of an upswing, then I could see some impact to consultants in the fall.
as for fishbowl, it has been the best entertainment. the stupidity runs rampant.
