In the process of negotiating an offer in hand at F100 medical manufacturing company as a senior director. Is negotiating severance into the employment contract standard? If so, what is typical?
Got a mysterious invite with a senior director to "catch-up" on Friday.....thinking they're going to let me go. Anyone know what sort of severance package I can expect? It's been an amazing 2 yrs
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.
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)
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.
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!

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.
Are people honest with their reviews for staff? My assistant only supports me and someone else so I feel like if I go off, it’ll be obvious it’s from me and I’ll have to face repercussions from her. It sounds ridiculous but as most of you know, apparently being incompetent as an assistant is not enough to get fired.
Woke up to the dreaded “Conversation with X” meeting on my calendar this morning 😔 I know this question has been asked multiple times but can someone provide me a list of all of the things I should send to myself before being let go? Also, does anyone have any tips on how to negotiate for the maximum severance package? So much processing through my head right now and trying to remain level-headed to figure out the short term plan in the meantime. I have my call in the next 3 hours. Thank you!
With everything going on and a recent layoff, I’ve really been reevaluating my life. Is it dumb to leave all $ and perks behind for more fulfillment and passion. I’m looking for a new job but... cont.
I’ve been paying a month to month and my name isn’t on the lease, the roomie’s name is on the lease. I did sign a rider though. Before I moved in, she requested a deposit which was equivalent to one month’s of rent of my half. Can I use the deposit for August rent if I’m moving September?

I passed the exams but I’m still missing the credits. For the credits I was planning on doing an MBA but now I’m not sure. Any advise? NY license here so the passed exams don’t expire

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?
Just got stood up on a 2nd date, and I really liked this guy. 😢 Dating in the NYC has been tough.
Finally emailed a recruiter to receive this message "We've recently signed an agreement with EY that we would no longer represent their employees....". Nice one EY! Hope they got a fat check.
Interesting read. I expect I’ll get a lot of “you’re racist” responses so my ask is to read the article first and then you can light me up with vitriol.
How do you all feel about a known female predator who psychologically abused people for years, and was fired as a result being on the list of speakers at the 3% conference? This is not speculation. This is fact. I hate that she is able to continue her charade. Thoughts? I have receipts btw. (Cross posting b/c I want wide range of opinions).
