I see many layoffs in the news these days. It makes me wonder what kind of job is safe. If you are working in the financial industry, should you be worried? I wanted to work in the financial industry, but it does not seem like a good time to change industries right now. I am currently working in a software projects funded by the government. The project’s risk is budget cuts by the government. The government does have huge amounts of debt right now, but hopefully the government will find a way to balance the coming budget.
