Sounds like yours may be a little sooner this year. Keep an eye on your calendar for later this month.

Sorry to hear about that, how many did they lay off?

All depends on if the client “found” money for extra projects or not. Freelancers get cut as soon as the holiday rush is over. Layoffs of FTEs generally are Feb and Sept/Oct.

That new cfo though...

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person.

I confess that this interaction I had @ a recent camping trip w/ my husband, son, two dogs was VERY confusing: I was doing a training session w/my dogs when an older white man stopped what he was doing to watch us.

I curtsied dramatically & smiled. Unconscious race/gender bias? How would you respond?
