Q : I'm an embedded software engineer and had no problems finding a job after I graduated. Then COVID-19 struck, and all of us working at the office had to work from home. A week later, I received a letter telling me my contract would be terminated.
I know it's hard to predict, because a pandemic of this size is unprecedented, but should I expect changes in the job market in the near future? Should I hold fire on a job hunt?
