Google Cuts 200 Employees in Sales and Marketing

Google has announced that it's cutting its sales and marketing staff by 200 worldwide. While it's never a happy experience, the bright side is that this is only about 1% of Google's total staff. Also, let's face it, if you need to find another job, having Google on your resume is helpful. Plus, I'm sure they'll have a better than average severance package.

Still, it sucks. Unfortunately, they're not alone. In search and social media, we've seen layoffs at Yahoo, Zillow and Fox Interactive, which owns MySpace.

But there are always those who will make lemonade out of lemons. A laid off Yahoo! started the Purple People Collective, to help other laid off Yahoo!'s find work.

Despite the economy, there are jobs out there. Check out these 5 Web Resources You Need to Find a Job in Search.
