Recruiters - should I even bother sending out resumes atm given the state of the world? Fearful of layoffs. I’m assuming all hiring is at a standstill
How bad do you have to mess up to get fired? Any stories here, personal experience or witness someone else? I’m asking for a friend (really, I’m worried for him). He is a 1st year analyst at big 4.
Hi all - my partner was laid off in April and still having a difficult time finding work in the DC area. Thanks to your advice earlier in the year, he’s back in school to finish his bachelors in IS Management + taking the NET+ cert exam soon. Will it be hard for him to find a job until he gets his degree or will the cert help with an entry level job to tie him over? For reference he’s had 1 full-time role with a tech company in acct mgt. and (2) IT support internships. Thanks in advance!
Agency CEO: This is a family... but if our annual profits are only 5% instead of 7%, you’re fired. 🤔🤨
More layoffs in the Crypto world
How do you feel about job stability for newly hired folks in firms that went on huge hiring sprees with big offers and more leniency on "target" metrics than typical recruiting? Will there be a point where the huge influx of new consultants exceeds new work brought in and a bunch of companies end up having to do layoffs? Or am I being paranoid?
I haven't made a move yet, but it's something I've been thinking about and it worries me.
What are the most stable companies/industries during this recession and pandemic 👀 Or which consulting firm has the least risk of having massive layoffs?
First time giving notice in house. I’d like to negotiate a severance agreement. Do you approach GC and say as you know I’m leaving. I’d be open to negotiating a termination agreement?
Greg Hahn laid off. That’s something.
I got an offer from Accenture Kolkata, for 11 yrs they are paying 30 as fixed so I like the offer. But I am scared to join as I heard about 10% layoff policy. Also heard that work life balance is very bad. I am a backend microservice developer working with Core Java and Spring boot. Need idea about the job security and work life balance in Accenture
If there is another recession and companies layoff ppl- I’m officially calling for more employee protection- and maybe unions- at a certain point it’s bs
Public accounting firms that are hiring tax compliance staff/associates? Haven’t been laid off yet but the writing is on the wall
when I was laid off from my last firm/practice, I asked “why me” inspite of impeccable feedback 3 yrs. But now when I hear stories of people are getting intimidated in practice - i am glad it was me.

I was laid off during Deloitte‘s mass layoff in July of last year. I have worked as an independent contractor since and projects haven’t been consistent at the client I’m working for. I’m looking to get back into a big firm and was seeing if anyone would be able to refer me or help get my foot in the door. I was a business analyst for 1.5 years at Deloitte and have several years of additional experience which I’d be more than happy to share.
Laid off from a boutique in SF after a year. Had to move home, no savings, and student loans up the wazoo. I don’t know when I’ll be employed next. Any tips for getting through this dark time?

“How’s 2020 is going?”
I’m currently recruiting for a high level leadership role (FL) and initially doing phone screens before sending candidates to interview with a chief officer. I am trying to gauge EQ and communication styles and asking candidates to “tell me about a time when” or “can you give me an example of” things they should have done by this point in their career. A lot of times candidates don’t provide examples but instead speak in hypotheticals or tell me their philosophy about the item in question. I have been noting that they failed to provide an example or that they provide a generic response but would love to know how others handle this? Do you pushback and ask again for a specific example? Or let it go and note it?
