I work for a company that is having some cash-flow problems. We recently did a large round of lay-offs in which we "trimmed the fat," but we are still looking for and hiring quality people.
The problem is that we're nowhere close to break-even and, although we have a large untouched line of credit, I am getting very concerned about the company's viability.
I am not worried about my job - I'm sure that I would be close to the last to go if more lay-offs did have to happen - but I have lost a very significant amount of money on paper as the stock price has plummeted and I have equity in the company.
So my question is... What does one do in a situation like this? I don't want to start looking for another job but I want to have my ducks in a row if I do have to. Should I start sending out my resume, or contacting recruiters to "check in," or just start trying to make contacts?
I do believe in the long-term viability of the company based on its business plan and current operations, however there are other factors at work here, and I want to hope for the best while being prepared for the worst.
