Anyone know how to get out of this post lay off slump? Got laid off early this week and it has absolutely crushed my confidence. So anxious knowing agencies arent hiring in nyc right now too...

If you can...take a week to relax. Don’t send resumes. Don’t search for jobs. Enjoy the city. Get your head straight. And then hit it hard when you’re rest.

It’s difficult to get out of that negative mindset, but it’s worth the effort

My advice? Find a new industry. Advertising is dying, especially agency advertising. Get a client side job or move out of advertising completely and leave this steaming pile of shit behind you.

I’ve been though lay-offs a few times. In this business it’s hard not to. That said, although you don’t feel good now (understandably), get back up, dust yourself off and get back in the game. While you’re looking, get plenty of exercise (along with mood boosting endorphins) and take care of yourself. Treat looking for a job as your job—meaning get up every day by 7 and be at your desk by 9. Work from your library or local Starbucks to mix things up. But watch out for your stuff like your computer, they tend to go missing easily. Hang in there and good luck.

We are hiring an AE.

After interviewing for a software engineering role and passing, I was (rather shadily) tossed into an entirely different role, and I can no longer put SE on my resume. My goal is to become a senior software engineer and eventually make the jump to development within web3. With the current path I am on, I would actually consider it to be detrimental to landing a development job in the future but it will look bad for leaving a role this early. I lose valuable skills everyday. What should I do?

Thoughts on leaving a commercial AE role from Salesforce to a smaller company (Snowflake/MongoDB/Databricks etc). I have consistently been 150%+ of OTE at SFDC but know for a fact my comp is way under the market. Would be moving into an EAE role and almost doubling base and OTE. Seems like a no brainer but at the same time too good to be true? Has anyone out there made the move and can provide feedback?

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.

Honest question: is the “labor shortage” in strat/planning being felt at most shops today? My department has dropped to half its size in 6months and cries for help have been met with “we’re trying to hire more people but it’s an industry wide issue”… there are a ton of surrounding factors at play (clearly🥴) but wonder how many others are in the same boat? how are we all doing?
