Structurally, both are correct. But, the meaning changes. In the first sentence, "correspondingly" gives focus on "followed" whereas in the second sentence, "corresponding" gives focus on "job loss".

Both are gramatically correct..

1)sentence correspondingly -- Adverb --> modifies verb.."followed"
2)sentence corresponding -- Adj -- > modifies noun "job loss"
