For those who were in the industry in 2008- how did you handle the markets crashing, waves of layoffs, and your workload while not letting stress get to you?
For people that were laid off last year or have been job searching for a few months, how are you staying optimistic and dealing with the interview fatigue? I feel like coping with rejections is one thing and I can bounce back from those but the burnout from interviewing and repeating stories is something else 😏
How do you stay motivated at work when there’s hiring freezes/layoffs in your industry? Can’t get a new job as other companies aren’t hiring, but yours might get cut too
Just got laid off for the first time (startup). It was out of the blue.
Had one foot out the door anyways for a number of reasons, but am now super paranoid about how this will look for future employees.
I have been with my firm for about two years. The associate I work for is not meeting the partners expectations. My fear is the associate will get fired and then I will be without a job. Thoughts?
Not consulting related but my friend just got laid off. What should I send to her as a care package? She lives across the country from me.

Kindly suggest, i have only 2 days.

Any furloughs or layoffs at your firm?
Moss Adams and Crowe seems like they let go 400 employees each while BDO implements pay cuts...?
Biggest issue is not feeling safe enough to say what's on my mind at work. High levels of sass and sarcasm seem likely to get me fired. 🤔
Reasons people on your team have been fired?
Was laid off. Got a bit of time before I have to leave. Am200. Are severance agreements standard?
I was recently laid off (along with a bunch of other people from my company since it’s not doing well). I had worked there for 11 months and a previous company for 6 months and a previous company before that for 3.5 years. Do you think my less than a year last two jobs stints will hurt my chances of a new job?

Applied for a role with Salesforce and had both a talent advisor and corporate recruiter reach out to schedule time to talk about the role. Is it normal for the recruiting process for two different people to reach out to schedule time? Is one more senior than the other/different approach?

I don't eat beef not so much as a Hindu religious stance but more culturally because I never grew up eating it and don't intend to now. Our family doesn't eat beef and we don't bring it home. My 5 year old daughter asked me why and I couldn't give her a thoughtful answer that didn't make me feel like a hypocrite (because I do eat meat ignoring animal cruelty) and the "religion" answer (this is what Hindus do) felt weak. Anyone else in a similar boat ? How did you handle that question?
Most likely going to lateral soon and I keep getting put on new deals. Obviously I can’t tell them what’s going on, but it doesn’t make sense to put in a week or two of work on a deal only to leave. Thoughts?
