Now, we here at Career Corner like spreading good news about the industry instead of gleefully spreading about the bad, but this week was chock-a-block enough with IT industry layoffs that we thought we should share.

Monday: Texas Instruments slashes 3,400 jobs, while Sprint is to give 8,000 staffers the boot

Tuesday: IBM to lay off plant workers in the United States, with a rumoured sacked toll of around 4,200

Wednesday: SAP to cut 3,000 jobs worldwide. Over at AOL, 700 people will be losing their livelihood.

But we don't want to leave you on a bad note, so, here: enjoy this hilarious short-film about the perils of being a knowledge worker in this day and age!
