2. Discussions with immigration

Anyone expecting layoffs due to COVID-19? There’s an indefinite hiring freeze and most promotions and have been paused. 👀
I have joined CGI 5 months back and my project is going to end on 31st. So what will happen after that? As there are layoffs going on in the market will it affect? I am from mainframes technology and have only 2yrs of exp. Can anyone explain pls? CGI
Just got benched, been completely billable till now, how long until I should be worried about potential layoffs? (Even though management is “committed” to not letting people go during covid)
Found out I’m being paid less than average for my role even though I was hired on as a senior project coordinator and later on “promoted” to a business analyst with no bump in pay. I am a contractor through an agency which I’m aware that plays a part in my take salary.
After talking to various colleagues who’ve been laid off or still working at the company they ALL make more than me. Two out of the three were hired in Jr roles one making 50 an hr and the other making 45. How to approach this?
3rd year SM. Have been allocating slide and model building to junior teammates for so long I legit feel like if I went to industry and have to do real work I would get called out as a fake and be fired immediately. Anyone else feel this way? I’ve always had imposter syndrome but feel this is different because I was good at managing and dealing with clients - but never as creative doing the actual work. Help.
UK specific query - If my company cannot find me clients/work and want to dismiss me because they are unable to find work for me at no fault of my own do they have to provide a severance package?
UK law says it’s easy to dismiss employees with less than 2 years service but it’s a big grey area. Anyone got any experience with this?

Has anyone ever participated in moonlighting without getting caught or fired? If yes, how did you do it and are you still doing it?
I recently got laid off and it’s been so hard to find a recruiting/sourcing role that’s not for a staffing agency. Anyone know who’s hiring or any slack channels that might be helpful?
Layoff in IQVIA?
My CD was high on drugs while working remote for the past two plus years. He got a paid trip to rehab, a few months off, and now he’s back, fucking everything up again. He’s never going to get fired because the ECD loves him. I need a new gig.

Looking for some insight. I recently got laid off from a growing start up. I loved the culture, the product, & they actually promote their people. I’ve been an BDR for a year at my previous company & then only a month at this one. My goal is to become an AE but now I’m wondering if that’s what I want. Ive been in tech in the Bay Area for 2+ years with previous experience in data management. Thinking of rebranding & getting into partner marketing or anything to get me to 6 figures. Thoughts?
Are severance packages offered upfront when you sign an offer with the benefits package? Or is it a you'll-know-when-you-need-it type of conversation?

Leader pushes their agenda. You object because it doesn't make sense. You get sidelined and leader's plan gets executed.
The plan fails, as you predicted and the leader asks you to clean it up.

Financing Q from incoming MBA student: Applied through Juno and just got approved for a loan from Earnest. Three quick questions: 1) confirming that I can only borrow for the upcoming year and would have to reapply next year? 2) I got 5.16% Fix APR - should I accept or look elsewhere? 3) does having a co-signer make a big difference?

Thoughts on Bo Burnham's Inside? It's honestly depressing not only in content but also to see one person create something so amazing just on their own. Here I am struggling just to make an alright ad, meanwhile I should probably just forget ads and actually make something decent instead. Sigh.
How do you know if working in advertising is not right for you? First creative job and I can’t tell if it’s imposter syndrome, growing pains, or if I just should give up pursuing advertising.

@ACD1 Miami, we haven’t lost all of them yet but we let a lot go and it looks like the axe will be coming down on more soon :(
Yes. My partner got laid off once and I didn’t. It was weird.
Yes. I was laid off and my partner wasn’t. I helped hire him.
I got laid off and my writer stayed. We lost the account I got hired for. Last in, first out. I’m guessing there were other factors as well. He just had a kid, and was super tight with our CDs, Creative Managers, etc.
Yeah my writer got let go and I was kept, it was tough cos he and I came in as an established team from a previous agency, had worked together for a while, and were mates out of work
I was let go, writer was kept on
