I heard there's another layoff round coming at Microsoft, and several people I know at MS suddenly reached out asking about career opportunities. Anyone have the story?

    There's a big reorg going down in the universal store group. Lots of former Amazon people there so makes sense some would look to bounce back.

    Layoffs are used as a way to downsize. People reach out because they need a new opportunity. They’re also trying to opportunize their severance.
