As the economy continues to recover, folks like you and me and business firms are gaining a clearer picture of what the future looks like. Banks in the financial sector speak of consumer deleveraging. Technology firms have had to adjust cost structures to face a new market place (read this Ballmer-related blog in May 2009). And some firms are now ramping up to grow and go. Each situation is different.
What I’ve seen is that some technology companies that adjusted quickly at the start of the recession are now hiriing again. Others are still laying off. MarketWatch has just reported a smaller layoff at Microsoft HERE. So read for yourself and decide what it all means.
