I was laid off during Deloitte‘s mass layoff in July of last year. I have worked as an independent contractor since and projects haven’t been consistent at the client I’m working for. I’m looking to get back into a big firm and was seeing if anyone would be able to refer me or help get my foot in the door. I was a business analyst for 1.5 years at Deloitte and have several years of additional experience which I’d be more than happy to share.

It’s been 48 day since the layoff! I have had 2 interview. One was with Salesforce and I was supposed to be in the final round and then they put the position on Hold and another one was with a Pharma Client in Boston and they picked another person for the role... I’ve just been so stressed on when I could be employed again be stress free.. still looking for a Salesforce Business Analyst position if someone could recommend or refer me I’ll be really thankful.

Question for everyone out there, I am a business analyst and thinking about exploring new career opportunities. What are the thoughts of the job market right now for folks who are currently employed? Is it smart to try and look for a new job right now in this climate, or should I wait it out until post Covid? I feel like I might be one of the first ones let go if I go elsewhere, and I know that many people are looking for jobs due to Covid related layoffs.

I was recently laid off as a first year analyst. Looking for new consulting opportunities, but currently in a limbo stage of my career where I'm not an entry level campus hire, but also don't have 2-3+ years of experience to be considered an experienced hire. Open roles I've seen at various consulting companies have business analyst/entry level positions for 2021 graduates only...any advice/insights on how I should approach this stage of my career or companies hiring non campus, entry level roles?

My sister got laid off and is interviewing with BAE Systems and Guidehouse. She was working for a small company doing (federal) business analyst-type work. I don’t know much about either but hoping to get some answers from people who do so I can help her out. Anyone know about WLB, salary, culture? She has 5 YOE.

How do you deal with people you don’t like or trust at work? I find it extremely difficult to work around someone (especially if they are more senior) that I don’t like or trust.

It paralyzes me and even affects how I communicate with others, as I become hyper aware of who is and isn’t allies with the person I don’t like or feel is after me. Anyone can relate?
