To anyone who is looking to deal with anxiety and stress, have you tried meditation? I learned from www.YuriDhara.com a few years ago and it’s really helping me deal with everything. She’s teaching online now.

Just got laid off and scared out my mind because last time it took 2 years to find a new job. I'm 48 and unemployed in an economy that is probably now in a recession. Any help?

I hear that Publicis Groupe may initiate a hiring freeze. Does anyone here have any insight as to when that may be? I’m currently interviewing and am wondering if this will come to fruition.

Budgets are being slashed left and right. As an older, more highly compensated employee in this industry I see where this is heading. Might be finally time to switch industries

Anyone else feel you don’t realize what an asshole you actually are until 40? Maybe just me...

I’m 60. Changed agencies at 45, 50, 55. I know the ageism bias...it can be overcome. We are encyclopedias of great work, we instil confidence, and invaluable safe hands’ to lead in a crisis.
