Staffing a part time side project that counts towards utilization at my firm. Unfortunately due to small budget cuts had to tell some of the part time staff who were contributing a few hours a week to the project that we would need them to step back from the project. Sent them an email immediately and thanked them for their time, and told them would love to work together again in the future. Is this fine or do I need to also meet with them to reassure them in a case like this?

Looking for advice on project management software or tools for HR consulting. Our firm doesn’t have anything that is standard or used at all, and while some of us are starting to venture into using Microsoft Teams, I feel like there are so many tools out there and we could be doing things way more efficiently. We work in small client teams (1-3 team members per client usually) and it’s a mix of strategy, tactical, and outsourced HR work. Any suggestions?
Experienced folks!!! please guide -
I am working in Infosys from last 2.5 years in a support project for Oracle application. I want to up-skill but there is no proper structure. I came across CodingNinjas with a full stack developer program costing 1.25L and assured placements. Is this worth it to make the transition from support to product type role?
**If you believe i should not spend on the program, can you guide on which platform/tech provides structured way of learning?** Thank you.

I need some advice, I’ve been in a newly created role within a pharma agency for about three months now and it is not going too well. There is little to no structure or direction from senior leadership, no access to client data, little to no billable work. Worst of all, no project is related to what I have been hired to do.
I would like to move on with a different agency asap, but I’m not sure how to proceed with such a short time here.
I need some help. I have 3 YOE.
Package I told I am expecting is 8.5lpa

My goal is to eventually live off of several properties that I rent out. Not sure how many I would need but started by buying a condo last year when I had 20% down payment. I’ve saved another 20% since buying the first condo. I could rent the first place out for about 85% of the total payment (including mortgage, taxes, insurance, condo fee, maintenance on the unit).
Is it better to:
1) Add the 20% into the first condo to try to knockout that mortgage as early as possible?
2) buy a 2nd condo

Any interesting sources to keep oneself updated with design trends?
I for one enjoy www.growth.design very much!! :)
Looking to pivot my career into Graphic + Web Design! I created a Learning Roadmap to plan out the things I need to teach myself in order to master the basics & start taking on clients.
1. Learn fundamentals of Graphic Design & Design Theory (I have a couple books I’m reading & courses I will take)
2. Learn Figma bc it is an advanced design tool/software (I only know Canva)
3. Learn Webflow as it is the premier web-designing platform (I only know Wix)
Is this a good start? Do I need Adobe? Ty

(1/2)Has anyone ever had their contract end early with no warning? I was hired as an “agile social designer” for a big box retailer as a freelancer. The gig posting said it was a couple months (until the end of june) but when I interviewed they said they were actually gonna extend me until next February. Anyways now they’re saying the whole agile team may be eliminated and I didn’t get any new work assigned this week… I’m kind of freaking out bc I thought I’d at least have until next month.

Hello! Q on how to follow up w/ recruiter about a role. DM’d them about Founding Product Designer role, they “love my background” but looking for someone with actually 10 YOE (JD says 4+). It’s been a little over a mo. with role seemingly still open on their site.
I’ve since updated resume w/ + experience (isn’t close to 4 years tho) and exp is aligned. Looking at the rest of the JD and type of company, I know I can fill the role.

What’s the secret?
No matter how I format my resume, cover letters, or any of my experience/portfolio, I never get any response when applying. I even started reaching out to hiring managers via LinkedIn and still nothing. My first role I was leading & creating for some of the biggest global clients & working on every side of the project pipeline confidently, way beyond my job title. People tell me “I’m not worried for you at all” when I was laid off, as if I should be swimming thru offers
I have been short-listed among 2 other applicants for a great UX/UI role.
The role is very UI focused, am a jr but the role is Mid weight, yet I still got through! Yay
But now I got an email from the interviewer asking for live links of apps and websites that are similar to theirs that I have designed before.. I am stuck... should I decline the interview? I don't have much links to send. And the ones I did were confidential and the ones that are not , are already on my website what should I do?

Interesting! Did your original contract say anything about this, in the case of termination? Anyone can go look at any brand and create alternative branding as a creative exercise, so I don’t immediately see a conflict in your use, as long as it’s framed as an unofficial exploration. Just my two cents since it’s really not my area.
The job was terminated and they did not purchase a license for the work, however they claimed that it was a conflict and asked me to remove it from my website. Even though I described it as concept work, unused, I removed it to avoid a problem. Even though I know my rights, this was a complicated chick from the beginning and I'm not going to let her haunt me a year later 😭
