Hi all, Finally COVID-19 caught up with me. Not health-wise but career wise. I was laid off and am looking for a job. Ple
Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?
It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.
Thanks in advance!
Father was laid off a few months back and recently got a new job, he’s wondering if we can still file for unemployment for the months where he wasn’t working?
Anyone have a sense of why Deloitte got hit so hard by layoffs? I’ve heard four potential reasons:
1. Client mix / type of work
3. Over hired in anticipation of growth
4. Partners didn’t want to take a haircut
Just curious! From an external perspective, seems like they cut way more than the other firms.
Should an ad agency be able to thoroughly check my references and ask for my entire employment history (including why I left each job) before agreeing on a salary?
I’ve had 7 interviews, met every stakeholder, was initially approached by one of them, who will be my boss. Plus I’ve had great feedback after every interview.
I was laid off from my previous job because of COVID so don’t have a ton of leverage. But that shouldn’t make me powerless. The process just seems like overkill.
Are green card holders eligible for unemployment benefits? Do you need to pay any unemployment insurance while working in order to be eligible for those benefits when you’re laid off?
Hey everybody. Got laid off at D. BTA within strategy and analytics. Mostly LS/HC experience. Anybody can help out with a referral anywhere? Thank you!
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client?
Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
How long did it take for you to find an exit? 1YOE and my company (boutique) is struggling, so I’m looking to leave ASAP, and getting worried I won’t find something before our next round of layoffs
Edelman lays off 5% of staff domestically. 50% of data and analytics team laid off in NY. Clearly decision makers understand the industry and what’s valuable (intuition > data)
Laid off after Thanksgiving. 54. Not done yet. Plenty to offer. In Detroit but ready and able to move anywhere. AD/CD. Hangin in there. How bout you?
If a firm (for e.g. PwC with MF Global) loses a pending law suit, are layoffs inevitable?
Any advice for lateraling as first-year business lit associate? I’m not getting any work at my current firm due to partner hoarding and overstaffing. Can I lateral this early or should I wait until I’m inevitably fired for low hours? If I should lateral now, what reasons for leaving should I give interviewers? Should I tell the truth or will it look bad on me?
Any of the big 4/5 announce layoffs yet?
PSA 4 anyone looking at media agencies-stay far away from PHD (and Omnicom Media Group in general). As far as I can tell they are 1 of the only companies going from “we encourage you to come in 1x a week” to suddenly “its now mandated that everyone come in 3x week” - Senior leadership has done nothing to address many employees concerns of public safety, Covid, & mental health. Sounds like it’s “we’re paying rent here so let’s make sure we’re using it”. On top of that layoffs seem to be looming
Hi, I had been laid off several weeks ago and because of eagerness to find a new job, I had sent out several apps to companies with positions I qualified for. However, I was screened out immediately due to my resume.
Because of this, I had revamped my resume to better showcase my qualifications after having colleagues review and provide feedback.
I wanted to see if it would be worth trying to apply to the same positions with a different email? Thank you for any advice!
People realize the recession is only just starting right? So far we have only had a few rate rises, with many more to come. Stocks are down a little, but only just barely into bear territory. Major companies will be reporting large losses soon, but that hasn't happened yet, and the market will react to that.
No major companies have begun large layoffs yet, either, so far we are only seeing a few minor hiring freezes. And of course we haven't seen bankruptcies yet, but they are surely coming.
Laid off by Deloitte and although having immediate rehire eligibility (pmd said this) firm is sparsely hiring. Got a director level role in industry and am psyched to start soon! Learned a lot at the firm and am excited for my next opportunity.
Anyone here who works at ARCA in PwC? How is that group doing? Any layoffs ya'll have heard of?
Anyone getting shop here?
Hey guys, need some advice. I was fortunate enough to get the Consortium fellowship at Ross but am also stuck on the CBS waitlist and am still planning to apply to Wharton in R3. Assuming I get into CBS/Wharton, is there that much of a difference between them to forgo scholarship money? For context, I want to get into product management at FAANG/fintech with pursuing MBB as a plan B. Thanks in advance!
How do you guys clean black pants that can’t be washed? I’ve heard putting them in the freezer is an urban myth lol
Curious what other UR Coordinators are earning. I have 15 years experience, masters degree in healthcare management, and am working for a company in CA.
How does a creative director transition to director of marketing at a company? I have an interview for this position but need advice on how my skills transfer. Thanks in advance!

The offer from mphasis is 30 LPA, CTS 26 LPA, IDEXCEL 30 LPA, and TRELLEBORG 33 LPA. Which one should I choose?
I’m a little socially inept so have a question. I made plans a week ago to hang out with a friend today and do a girls hang/brunch. I made dinner plans with the guy I’m dating for later tonight. Well now my friend is bailing on me and so when I hang out with the guy I’m dating later I’m sure he’ll ask how brunch was and do I admit to being a loser with flakey friends or can I just pretend brunch was good and avoid the awkward conversation of how I was ghosted by my friend?
Hi. I just completed my MBA in Toronto. I worked for a VC firm during my summer internship and then with an incubator throughout my final year. Looking for full time associate roles in VC in Toronto/Vancouver. Would really appreciate any leads/ connects/help. ( I am an international student so USA is a bit tough to move to from a visa point of view). Thanks!
A close friend of mine (also an atty) recently committed suicide and I feel completely lost. Her family doesn't want that publicly known so I can't even discuss the suicide with most of my friends/family, I just say she "died unexpectedly but we don't have many details." I feel like my grief is affecting my work productivity (compounding the pre-existing covid anxiety), but it feels weird to seek leave time to grieve for a non-family member's death. Anyone ever dealt with a similar situation?
I have 52 days to study for the far. I can study 10-12 hours on the weekends and 3-4 hours per day on the weekdays. With Becker I’ll be able to get through all the modules and have two weeks for review. Is this enough time to pass?
Hey Salaam all! Glad you're here!

What does it mean when a guy says they’re looking for a girl that doesn’t take themselves too seriously? Should I be a joke or…?
The IT team and HR team are ridiculously slow. I joined 15 days back and am still yet to get my laptop!
I am very interested in real estate and found a posting about a PE real estate role. anyone here would be kind to talk about their experience if they currently work in the field? I don’t know much about PE, but know a lot about real estate. What does a career look like in this niche?
Hey ladies! I started a new role back in September, fresh out of college. In this role I often have to communicate with acct managers + I’ve noticed that they often question/screen me before letting me to do my job. I’ve asked around + others that I started with don’t experience this. I wonder if my “black name” is apart of this. I have always loved my name and displayed it but lately I’ve been wondering if it’s hindering me? For ref, my name is common for blk women but spelled differently.
