One fine day a guy with a serious face makes an announcement. We will not be needing the services of xxxx number of people. Thanks for working with us. You are one of those xxxx fired. But what wrong did you do ? Your life’s hardwork, your time spent for the organization had just gone down the drain all because of the hubris of some overqualified people, who have more than what they deserve. I have been lucky enough to not be in the eye of the storm.
But there is another side of these pink slips. There will be Pink Panthers evolving from these pink slips, who will run through the jungles of startups creating a new paradise. The assemblage of intelligent people caught in the storm of recession will rise above all.
