When you think of technology jobs, such as those with Microsoft, you probably don't think about the possibility of layoffs. That belief, however, is far from the truth when it comes to Microsoft. The tech giant has announced that it will layoff 18,000 jobs. This is the largest job cut in the company's 39 years.
The chief executive officer of the company says that the move is necessary to keep the company agile. The unit of the company that is the main target of the layoffs is the Nokia mobile device unit. Around 12,500 jobs from that unit are on the chopping block.
