3 years experience in b4 as a Senior auditor, just got laid off due to covid. About to go on one year mob for Covid. Do you think this one year employment gap would affect my job searching next year when I come back?
When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
Hello everyone, I was laid off a few months ago working as a Business Analyst for a well known EHR company. I have been having a pretty rough time getting interviews. For those who wouldn’t mind, may I get some feedback on my resume?
“This global pandemic is exactly what our industry needed.” Okay...now repeat this exact phrase to the hundreds already laid off and all the ones to come. 🤯 https://www.campaignlive.com/article/took-global-pandemic-draw-line-sand-adland-sorely-needed/1678340
I don't understand the concept of receiving a 4 on Year End (and getting laid off). There is no set percentage to give people 4's and 5's right? How does one mess up that badly?
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’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
90% sure I’m about to be fired for sexual harassment (more detail in comments). Should I resign before I’m fired?
For those companies / roles with unlimited pto, how does a payout work if you leave and /or are laid off? Receive nothing or some set amount?
Those that have been laid off recently are you speaking to an employment lawyer at all? What are the reasons to / not to?
For those who survived layoffs and crises before, what things and actions made a difference? How'd you come out stronger? Did you pivot into something new entirely?
Veteran 🐟. Were their heavy layoffs during the last recession? Scared for job security and that we are close to another recession
I’m documenting updates my manager provides every week in my PIP document and at the end of the month he says his feedback isn’t captured accurately. What’s the best way to deal with this? Don’t want to get fired and think I’m doing much better than other people in my role
Is the hiring slowdown over? I contacted a few firms to inquire about lateral opportunities in late June/early July and was asked to check back in the fall due to hiring freezes. I wonder if I should reach back out or if it's too soon. The news about Skadden's staff layoffs this morning makes me think it's too soon.
Okay what’s up with the child tax credit? Moving it to 3,600/child under 5? And give people monthly payments of the credit? Is this really true? So if I have 2 kids under 5, I get a check from the IRS Monthly of $600?
Fam— would anyone be interested in a Glassdoor for black people? i.e anonymized reviews of companies from POCs. I think it would be massively helpful in gauging the diversity and inclusivity of a company outside polished recruitment processes and would publicly hold companies accountable. Thoughts?
EY sends a rejection email before I even submit the application. I literally just finished the questionnaire where it asked whether I need a visa sponsorship... guess that’s what 2020 is all about
Wild that conservatives think they're on the right side of history after supporting officials who let tens of thousands die needlessly and will now try to take away people's healthcare.
Started at a new firm 3 months ago, first two months was swamped staffed on a huge deal, (my only file) did my hours everything good. July: deal was supposed to close did not due to regulatory stuff but my work stream is done and over and am now really really slow, asked for work to people I had worked with to help them close - nothing, staffed on a new deal , client on vacation so everything is on stand by. I’m freaking out don’t know how to reach to partners/senior associates (ctd in comments)
Question: What is the very first memory you have of the police or personally interacting with the police? I’ll go first. My first memory of the police was of having my rights violated and being denied medical care after a traumatic brain injury. I was 12. My husband’s was the police putting a gun in his mom’s face. Details in first comment.
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

I have some friends over at McKinsey and they were saying I should apply as an experienced hire. I’m currently living in a smaller cheaper city and pretty comfortable with my family here. Friends at McKinsey say they think I would have to relocate. Any truth to that? I know some BCGers that are a part of the Bay Area office but live in PHX so I was just curious...

Do any of you who consider yourself primarily investment based, do taxes and p&c insurance? Would it be too much to handle as a sole producer with an assistant or 2?
