My Search Rep Friends Keep Losing Their Jobs

There are few things that really upset me at the level of hearing about friends with health issues. People losing their jobs really bothers me. Being a boss that is in the position of having to let employees go is not fun. Thankfully I have never had to do it for financial reasons. But it doesn't make it any easier.

Hearing of family, friends or colleagues losing their jobs really affects me.

Maybe that is why I take the downfall of Ask.com and Yahoo Search so hard. I know tons of people at Ask who have lost their jobs over the years, many have joined other companies but not all. And this week, 130 more lost their jobs. Very upsetting to me.

Yahoo has had tremendous layoffs as well. Some have moved to Microsoft but not all. Now there is new news that another 10-20% are losing their jobs in the near future. This is very upsetting.

I understand that the company as a whole has to survive so that 100% of the employees don't lose their jobs. But it doesn't make it any easier to see family, friends and colleagues lose their jobs.

The search industry is a special place for me. I hate it when good people in this industry are out of work.
