Was working in my community’s lounge with Deloitte swag. A girl probably saw the Deloitte logo and walked up to ask if Deloitte was hiring. Said she used to be in consulting but got fired when Covid hit and started doing OF. Now that OF will be gone soon, she’s contemplating going back to consulting. I didn’t know what to think or how to respond and I just said I’m on a call. Now I’m contemplating making OF account to check out her content 😅
Where are the layoffs? I heard Mullen in Boston 100 people, Anomaly big numbers, McGarrah Jessee in Austin 10% of all staff, Giant Spoon, where else hit hard?

For everyone who got laid off recently, what’s it like applying for jobs out there? Any firms interviewing at least?
Ever since my dad got laid off due to covid he has not been trying to get a job and our savings are running low… I don’t want my parents to depend on me but I feel like they will and my dad won’t get a job. What should I do? I’m an immigrant and we are Asian. It’s our culture to look after them but this is just tiring after I’ve helped them financially over the last decades and still am 😞
Hope everyone had a great start of the weekend!
Wondering about the people who lost jobs due to covid layoffs. Can you please share 1) if you found something comparable ?2) how long did it take ?
If you’ve been laid off during COVID or in the past, do you tell everyone you know or just people who can help you? I have been laid off due to COVID and tried to tell most people in the industry so I can find work, but I’m finding it emotionally draining to tell each person in my life, including every friend, relative and neighbor, that I am unemployed. Sometimes I just say everything’s fine when they ask me in order to save face and avoid their pity. Is this normal?

So I started freelancing a few months ago, because you know... laid off. And i signed up to Mt. Freelance and started watching their courses. And it’s super well crafted and helpful advice that will..
My roommate was fired from a boutique today, for “performance” (read: COVID) after 1.5 YOE. He is convinced that his career will never get back on track/recover (at 23). Is this true?
Just found out my dad might get laid off because his company is not doing well. He’s in his 50s so he worries about finding something. I don’t even know what to do.
Can I request severance when I resign?
The day I have a house with a custom built wood fired pizza oven in my backyard will be the day I will consider that “I’ve made it”. What goals stand in your way of “making it” in your life?
Hi everyone! Complete newbie here and looking to invest my cash on hand into some index funds with Fidelity. I have about 20k to invest, should I just dump it all in at once or should I DCA the amount? Also any recommendations for funds would be appreciated! Thank you!
Any follow on this? Apparently the White House is the only thing keeping these together? It's from a former aid so I'm skeptical.
I have two young kids at home, and it's made my temper very short. It seems like a big part of this is just eliminating noise! How much do you think workplace conflicts are caused by externalities?
