So we had a few people made redundant this week. Not a lot. But even one is too many. I've seen several people let go in 10 years of advertising. Never fun. Almost always shocking. Especially when it's due to the economy and completely unrelated to job performance as these were.
Six months into my first job out of grad school, I was part of an entire agency folding. As scary as that was at first, things turned out awesome. Wouldn't have had it any other way.
Here's hoping things turn out just as well for my friends.
