Same here! I can’t figure out insurance though. I’ve been traveling around the states and can’t figure out a plan that will cover me for more than one state.

My fear has always been if it’s that hard to get recruiters to look at your book and respond. Is it just as hard when you are freelancing to get recruiters to look at your emails?

How is the Accenture workday practice? I feel like I used to have a recruiter email me weekly to join pre-pandemic and it’s been silent since then. Did they have layoffs or just a hiring freeze, and can i expect them to start hiring again anytime soon?

hi everyone! while on set recently, I had an instance where I was assaulted by the head of accounts (drinking was involved, others were in the room who witnessed it happen). I talked to HR about it yesterday and they seem supportive, but what are my options here? Something like this has never happened to me before so I’m not sure what HR will suggest/what I should be looking for. If you’ve ever been in a similar situation, what did your company do afterward?

I have a contingent offer after being laid off in spring due to COVID. Since then the job market has obviously been tough, so a few buddies and I started a start up that has done very well, but we haven’t filed for LLC status yet (keeps pushing back). We have ~10 guys working on various areas. I just received an offer back in my usual industry, and have been truthful in my experiences. Will they ding me in a background check since there’s no 1099 to prove formal employment? FYI I have references

Anomaly president Franke Rodriguez emphasized the layoffs are not a result of the account loss: “This is directly associated with the impact coronavirus”

I realized most of my anxiety or depression stems from a lack of career fulfillment. I recently started a new position and things were going great till they restructured my group and laid off a few on my team. Now I'm always looking over my shoulder and too concerned about screwing up. In the past, I have been laid off & I can't help reading too much in to every single email. My therapist made me aware of this but I'm looking for coping tools that someone in my situation has found useful. HELP!
