Amidst the recent large-scale layoffs sweeping the tech industry, tech workers have had to learn how to navigate the newly oversaturated job market. Furthermore, workers who previously thought working for large tech giants would provide job security have been surprised with the chaotic layoffs at Meta that even removed top talent. Some workers are taking these layoffs as an opportunity to pursue passion projects and explore other career options, such as in the e-commerce business. Meanwhile, others are either competing in the competitive tech market to find better-fit roles or taking a break and waiting to see how this downturn plays out.
