I'm 29 and went through the 2008 economic recession when the banks collapsed.

Jobs were hard to get by with many applicants and university fee's rose.

What happens to someone who always worked? I always got a job at agencies where they seem to need 200 workers at the warehouse and I am driving. I always got some warehouse job at an agency.

I'm graduating in computing and looking for a graduate job where there are many programming languages jobs, web dev, php, javascript, etc and I have a strong portfolio of projects.

Will it get harder to get warehouse jobs now and it will be different then before and why?

Try not to worry.
As long as you are healthy, hard working, have a reputation as a helpful & reliable worker and no criminal record- there will always be a job for you.
Just ensure that you remain on good terms with all your work references and keep your social media presence very clean or only visible to friends (with no controversial photos/opinions).

In regards to a recession, its going to be bad, there are millions of people facing redundancies through no fault of their own, and will be looking to find new jobs/welfare from the state

I would say, if you have a job currently, be the one to always go the extra mile, that way IF they look at redundancies, they will look upon you and go, no, this person is a brilliant worker, it would be bad to let this person go

Thanks guys.

Why are people getting redundant?
businesses are not getting many sales due to government restrictions

However things are relaxing, people are going back to work, theme parks are opening, so are bars, restaurants, people do work from home.

I hope its nothing like the recession we had starting from 2008 or 2010, lots of graduates could not find work, it was chaos back then, it was a bit scary too. Jobs were hard to find, however I hope I can still find a job where I've always found a job at agencies.
