Why are the only big-name layoffs Creatives? No agency president, CEO or CFO who left their agency unprepared is being fired?

Sessions fired. Looks like Trump understands how much trouble he’s in. To all the Trumpers in this thread trying to spin yesterday’s results... maybe you should tell your president.

Has any one yet heard of the president of Tangible Media shutting all operations and letting all employees go. No severance package, no paid vacation, nothing but a 48 hour notice to pack up and go.

When your president wants to bring in outside media professionals to audit your plans, do you quit? Are you getting fired? Anyone hiring?!

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

I think leveraging an offer to get more money is the worst. Now your bosses know you want to leave, you are the fist option during layoffs and you look like an ass the other company.

I’m, technically, a Jr but being paid as a Mid because I had a great mentor who believed in me. I’m now moving on to an actual Mid role but have no idea if I should ask for a higher salary because if I do, I’ll basically be asking for close to a Sr Creative’s salary. At the same time, I don’t want to seem like I can be taken advantage of or a pushover if I don’t ask for more. Any advice on how I can navigate this?

Advice desperately needed. I've been at my agency for 6 years and I have a one year old child. Work is going well since I returned 6 months ago after maternity leave, my boss likes me, has given me more responsibility and praises my work but he's basically told me I won't be promoted because the 2 CD slots above me are both filled. Staying would be comfortable and easy with the little one especially but I feel I'm never going to grow and progress if I don't move up so I feel I have no choice but to look elsewhere. What would you do?
