So our school board just fired our principal last tonight. He was terrible for the last five years but decided now would be a good time. Our head secretary who has been here for 30 years took a different position at another site two weeks ago because of that principal. We start school in three weeks with no principal, no head secretary, and no schedule for distance learning. Please pray for me 😐
One teacher is actively trying to get another teacher fired. She’s gone to the principal, higher up, w/all sorts of unfounded complaints. Is there anything that can be done? Legally? HR? Union?
My husband was affected by covid related layoffs this morning from a cybersecurity product company. He is a principal software engineer with 9+ years of front end experience (angular, ember, node, html css). Located in Virginia but open to move anywhere and would need immigration support. Any pointers to companies that are hiring right now / a referral from a kind internet stranger would be appreciated. Thanks!
Younger fish with no dependents who’ve been laid off, are you paying for COBRA benefits? Healthy 26 y/o and can’t imagine paying $600 per month for crummy coverage while unemployed..
If you’re a foreigner and just gotten laid off, there’s a way to get your visa extended via a newly formed union.
My mom just got laid off today...just got promoted on Friday too...why does this happen😣 all I want to do is fly home and hug my mom
Recently laid off and reaching out to people working at companies I'm interested in. Mostly folks I don't know but went to same college/worked at same place. Should I mention I was laid off in initial note or wait until a meeting? I can see benefits to either timing.
Was part of a mass layoff yesterday. What should I do with all this unexpected time off? (Aside from looking for a new gig)
Do strategists ever get fired for being bad at their core jobs - writing briefs? Creatives get fired for this all the time.
I’ve joined the league of Covid layoffs. I was in an Art Director role with an experiential agency. I’d love to move into a more strategy focused role next — any advice on how best to pivot?
What are the secrets to longevity and not being perceived as too old to be hireable later in life? I’ve seen a lot of people get fired in their late 50’s at my bank and struggle to find positions again. Rational or not, this terrifies me (modeling planning to work to 65 if possible, though 27 now). It seems like ageism isn’t just real but tacitly accepted.
Please try not to stress about layoffs. There is absolutely nothing you can do except prepare (if needed) and continue working as though your job is not in jeopardy.
Do you think independent agencies will be in better shape to handle COVID-related client budget reductions and/or losses? Or does it not matter and layoffs are equal across the board?
How do you reduce your risk of being laid off? And while we're on the topic, who has the highest/lowest chance of being laid off?
Almost positive I’m being laid off today. How can I negotiate severance? What’s the best course of action ?
*POSTING THIS ON BEHALF OF A DEAR FRIEND* A former coworker was laid off today, along with a few other people. She’s a Public Relations Executive, with lots of music and entertainment experience. I know these are hard times, but if you know about an agency or brand in need of staff members or freelancers, please don’t hesitate to reach out 🙏🏻 Thanks!
Got a mysterious invite with a senior partner to "catch-up" on Friday.....thinking D is going to let me go. Anyone know what sort of severance package I can expect? It has been an amazing couple years
Do you keep the work in your portfolio + the well known company on your resume if you were fired as a contractor? If yes, then what exactly do you say in your next interview? I plan to honest + brief
Is there a list of which consulting companies have/have not instituted layoffs, furloughs, pay freezes, etc.? Keep hearing it’s happening everywhere, curious specifically if some firms are actually going ahead with merit increases / VC.
Strategists never get fired. Next to Account. Creative and production are chopped first. To make the insult worse, Strategists get hired faster everywhere. Perceived value is everything.
People of Vayner — were Gary’s videos something that drew you to the company? Or just a necessary embarrassment?
One more day- if a gap up occurs on either AAPL or TSLA I’ll take a swing short position with very high odds of returning 50-75% easily. End of day sell off in market is indication of what is to come soon.
Can you withdraw all contributions penalty free in a Roth (401k, IRA) anytime after 5 years and before age 59.5? I know withdrawing gains for health/tuition/home is exempt but what about contributions
H1B was recently approved but the immigration firm reached out to say it was not automatically activated. I have to go back to home country to get it stamped. Any experiences/trouble with this?
I know PwC has Talent Exchange for hiring contractors, what do the other companies have similar to it?
I’m a Canadian looking to transfer to the Us for work... my applications are going no where. Is it because I click the need sponsorship button? Should I lie on my application? Which companies are still doing H1B?

Recent grad hoping to switch to a big 4 firm. Undergrad recruiting went real shitty and I was wondering if experienced hire recruiting in general is as competitive?
Associate at a V5 firm. Focusing on M&A and financial institutions. Wondering what exit options might be at the 3 and 5 year mark. Any advice?
Has anyone here moved from public accounting to tech? I have a tax background with a minor in info systems management. Looking into data science roles
I feel really really sad right now. No reason, maybe the weather? I feel so sad I don't even care to eat 😢
