I’ve had to talk quite a few clients off a ledge to prevent panicked selling. To what degree are you all seeing this? I’m worried this is an industry trend and will lead to layoffs on our ends

I’m great once I’m with the client and my clients love me but apparently I suck at prospecting. Going to get fired any day now. What roles are non-sales like but will allow me to stay in the business?

Our agency just went through layoffs and my original manager was let go. Any advice on how to reach out to someone senior that is now jobless? Trying to be sensitive to his new situation while offering any support/help I can.

Being terminated as part of reorg. 13 years of service, consistently exceeded expectations. Officially considered partner. Package is 26 weeks of severance pay, two months "gardening leave", plus payout of long-term incentive. Would have preferred a more cooperative approach to voluntary retirement. Thoughts?

Hey Accounting Fam - Started looking for a job when my company started going south due to COVID about 2 months ago. I’ve been very blessed to have survived 2 rounds of layoffs. Got an offer today that is a 15% increase in base pay. Company is stable and their leading in their field. Should I feel guilty for wanting to leave? I’m thankful my manager has kept me safe so far, and I feel like I owe her, specially since our team is short-staffed now. Advice and anecdotes welcome.

Hi y’all, I am a Design Strategist at a Minneapolis AD agency. I have 3 years of Ad experience, switched from corporate environment. If this year taught me anything it’s not to be surprised. After George Floyd I can’t help but judge my environment and how senseless and apathetic non-BIPOC people can be to our realities. A whole pandemic going on, a few days away from the election and I got laid off. I’m a Black woman with a strong work ethic, if anyone has career advice please share. Thank you!
