How to Avoid a Layoff

This video by is a good overview of how people (in New York City) are responding to our current economic down-turn. Here's a point I especially liked:

If you think your company might be heading for a round of lay-offs, sit down with your manager and ask what project is most important to the company right now. Then try to get involved in that project as your primary responsibility. If you're working on something that's of secondary importance to the survival of the company, you're more likely to get laid off. If you're working on a primary project, you're less apt to be sent packing.
