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!

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.

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?

*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!

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.
