Online Industry Layoffs (*UPDATE)!

I wrote an article back in the end of October on How To Track Online Industry Layoffs! My source was Techcrunch’s layoff tracker. I have updated that last post a few times already and it’s scary watching these numbers grow. TC has been promoting their “CrunchBoard” Job Board which is not bad. I’ll let you know if I find anything good. As of now:

Total Layoffs Since August 27, 2008: 266

Total Employees: 93,119

And these numbers are constantly growing. For an updated & comprehensive list Click Here. There is also another source for tracking jobs in our industry:! Jeremiah Owyang, Sr Analyst at Forrester Research Social Computing, started a post series (see archives) to recognize and congratulate folks who get promoted, move, or accept new exciting positions.

Here as interesting iChart covering day by day tracking of Industry Layoffs:
