Seems like everywhere we turn these days, people are being laid off or in some cases, even booted from their homes. Despite the fact that there are some things you can do after losing your job, the reality of just how tight things are bound to get in our fields is becoming painfully close to coming to head.

IT geeks, how are things in your neck of the woods? I have heard some people are seeing a spike of opportunities while others are being laid off by the truck load? I think that all of us out there in Lockergnome land would appreciate a heads up in what is taking place in your neck of the woods.

Computer repair men and women, I have been hearing of serious slow downs. With few exceptions, I have been hearing of consolidation amongst repair outfits all the way to individual techs resorting to taking on extra retail jobs such at Big Box stores just to make ends meet. How bad has it been for you personally? I really want to know.

Please hit the comments and let all of us know what is going on in your neck of the woods. From the sounds of things, it is going to keep getting tighter, so I think it might be best to hear from some of the worst hit areas first so all of us can better plan should things really hit the fan.
