How to plan career to be recession resistant? Afraid of being laid off next recession, especially if I exit to a cushy, low-value industry job in a cyclical industry. In all these exit / employment discussions l, I never hear people talk about recession-resistance as a metric. Am I unique in worrying about this?
Can you provide advice to succeed/survive on the corporate client side? Moved away from agencies to corporate and it is SOUL SUCKING. Between the lack of flexibility (both personally and day to day), sterile environment, and millions of meetings a day I am going insane. The pay and benefits are dramatically better in this corporate role, but I won’t lie I am missing the freedom of agencies so much right now.

At what age/point is it a little concerning to have an “entry-level” type of job? I’m 26 and considering pivoting industries, and unfortunately I’ll only have the soft skills to transfer, and as a result I’ll be contending with 22/23 year olds for openings.
Any suggestions where to exit from analytics in DC (not consulting)? Starting to look but everywhere seems to be government contracting or consulting
Starting the interview loop again for a PgM role in UX at Google. I received good feedback the first set of interviews I did for a previous role but I didn’t get to the hiring committee. I would like to increase my chances this time since there are multiple roles open across different teams. I’m really worried about the GCA round since this loop is different and I don’t have experience in UX. Does anyone have any resources that would be useful for me to leverage for this round?

Big decision. Took a job at a small org/higher level with shot to GC to develop my strategic/team building skills. Turns out that’s not the role. I’m micromanaged, under-utilized, & stagnating- no real development, but it’s SUPER easy, good pay, nice folks. Recruiter called &, Hello, offer. Different industry, more pay, work, development, opportunities to grow into F500 parent. I know I should be satisfied with decent $ & an easy job. What’s wrong with me? What to do?
If a service line is exceeding revenue targets for FY 20 (ending in June) what should we expect in terms of raises, bonuses, and promotions at year end? A few factors: 1) the firm as a whole may not be exceeding targets, 2) growth forecast for next year may be down due to current crisis, 3) the service line is still actively hiring

Has anyone started traveling yet? Client’s city has not had an outbreak and I’m slated to travel soon. I’m fairly nervous and refuse to fly so looking at driving 5-6 hours.
