The news hit today that Sony Corp. is set to get rid of 10,000 workers in a major overhaul of the company, seeking to take it out of the red and into the black. Much of the employee scale-backs will come from Sonyâ€™s television business, according to reports, and roughly half of the job cuts will stem from recent deals, including the companyâ€™s sale of a chemicals company and the new joint operation with Hitachi and Toshiba.
With news like this comes that oh-so-familiar and scary feeling of: Is my job next? Here are three signs a layoff may be coming and how you can be prepared to quickly rebound. --- Janell Hazelwood
