I have been approached for a new job opportunity. Its a good company & normally I would definitely go ahead with the next step but I just found out that one of my ex-colleagues is in the same team that I'm being approached for. It would be at the same level. This person was a really bad employee & really ruined the team culture.. The only good thing I can say about this person is that they were smart enough to quit before being fired. I'm apprehensive to even try & interview here. Any advice?
My wife got laid off by her employer a couple weeks ago but her severance package is for 3 months. It would be as if she was still employed until May. Should I report this as a life event now or wait?
Should you leave a somewhat stable (not so much with Covid and layoff talks) job for an ~8% pay increase at another agency rightnow? Who knows what the other place could be as well.
Laid off, what to do next? Advice please.
If a former manager never fought for you or bothered to reach out when you got laid off and then creeps your LinkedIn every so often is it worth keeping them as a contact, or remove them?
After getting laid off 2 weeks ago, I fired off about 20 resumes to different places. I have not received any feedback at all. Any ideas how to get past the computer and in front of someone?
I know everyone is talking about Deutsch’s CCO getting fired, but did Venables Bell’s CCO get fired too? It didn’t sound like it from the article, so I’m curious what’s going on since I was actually interested in working there but am unsure now. Why are all these CCOs so stupid? 🤦🏾♀️

It's kinda bullshit that a lot of us worked hard to get into consulting and now have to deal with layoffs. While others are enjoying safe decent paying jobs even though they slack off.
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.

Why does PwC need layoffs again if the business is doing well? Also, curious to know what are the other “business reasons” when your util and snapshots are great?

What’s the best item you’ve bought with a home-from-home office set up stipend? $500 or under.
I'm moving to Europe in a few months I'm also struggling with depression since covid started. I'm not running away, per se but I definitely could use a fresh start. Loneliness is definitely at the heart of the issue. I've spoken to friends/family about it, and they're doing their best to hang out but everyone got in relationships over covid so their time is limited. I see friends like once or twice a month - much less than pre covid. Any advice about staying sane these last 2 months?

Hey guys. I have a soon to be nonprofit church struggling because they already started services (collecting offerings too against my advice) before things were set with an EIN and they gave an event already planned out and are trying to find a way to spend and collect before the things are in order. They want to know if one of their small business owners can expense and collect then consider it a donation. Is this possible? Any advice or loopholes that are Legal and will avoid issues later on?

So I joined PwC as a first year senior and got promoted this year. I heard the firm does not pay milestone bonus to people not organically grew in the firm? Or just a hair cut? I just tried to figure out if I can offset some of my realized gains and losses due to financial clearance ...
