I’m a Financial Services Strategy Manager in NYC who just got laid off. Any connections to strategic planning roles in the NYC area would be very much appreciated. This was a surprise to me as my career counselor said I was in track. Only have two months of severance so would like to find something by end of year.
I’m gonna cry. In the beginning of the SIP my firm let some people go, my manager got fired because she did something stupid, and now a person on my team has quit without notice and I’m stuck
Just got hired at Accenture as a senior analyst. New to consulting and scared of bench time/getting fired. Any tips on how a new consultant with no skills/experience can avoid bench time?
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
Laid off due to covid and starting delivering food through UberEats. Do I still qualify for unemployment? I can’t find anything on this and calling is no use
I am 30 and just got promoted to Senior manager. I think I am doing well but I feel I am driven more by pessimism, imposter syndrome, and fear of getting fired as opposed to a positive mindset and the desire to thrive in my career. I feel like I am suffering from some sort of a mental issue but wanted to throw it out here and get some advice to deal with this from the fishbowl fam as opposed to going to therapy. Thanks in advance for your responses!

Exploring the cyber security career field but I have a question: if this is your job and the company you work for gets hacked, do you get fired?
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station

Has anyone heard of people being negatively impacted if their team think they might be leaving? I’m interviewing elsewhere and haven’t told anyone at the firm, but I feel like my managers can feel me pulling away. I’m trying to stay focused on my team while I’m still here but I just don’t care about audit anymore.
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.

Has anyone had experience applying for a Croatian Visa in NYC? Information on the Croatian consulate’s website is useless and stops with “fill this application form”.
Attempting to lateral between Big 4's to switch practice lines. Not sure how to explain why I don't just stay at my current firm and work with the group that does the type of work I'd like to do - truth is I briefly worked with them and loved the work but couldn't stand working with the team members at all. Is a sufficiently explained 'not a cultural fit' adequate here? Will they even care? I also doubt my practice line would approve the transfer since we're understaffed.
