list of obvious things to do to make sure layoffs donot affect you...
- Never say never
- Build networks

and the above is a comment to the same article by Manish...
L - Leverage your skills across industries or disciplines. A - Articulate the value you will provide to an employer based on your skill-set. Y - Yank irrelevant details off your resume; if you are a C programmer, there is no need to write 2 bullets on your skills in writing procedures or remote calls. O - Offer examples of your contribution to the larger objective F - Fine tune your profile in a manner that will be understood by the non-tech types. Alot of project level hiring is done by business or semi-tech folks F - Focus the employer on your problem solving, analytical, and communication skills S - Steer the interview so that you are able to highlight all your strengths and achievements.
