Has anyone been laid off while on maternity or medical leave, in this market? Curious about how much severance was given/negotiated. Thanks in advance!
Currently in a full time role at an RPO but have a potential offer in house on a 6-9 month contract with strong possibility of conversion at Hubspot. Pay is $15k higher than I make now. Would it be a bad decision to take the contract / contract to hire? I don’t doubt my ability to get converted, but the entire market is seeing huge layoffs so it makes me a little nervous. Thoughts?

The police brutality and racism situation in the US is just another example of the pure evil that public sector unions perpetrate. Ask yourself why bad racist violent cops don’t get fired? Why do teachers who assault children keep their salaries? Public sector unions are the problem.

Hi All, I fell victim to the recent tech layoffs in July when our startup had its funding pulled mid-series B. I was let go without severance and am starting to panic because sending out resumes in this job market feels like screaming into the void. Do any of you have any hiring leads for mid/senior level marketing communications positions? For reference, my last role was Director of Comms at a consumer health tech brand, 12 yoe total (+6 PR agency) tc $160k.
My MDs position was eliminated today. Is that a bad sign that layoffs are coming on my team?
Given the market and all the layoffs, curious if anyone has considered different roles to transition into? I really enjoy recruiting but I wonder if there are other roles I should look at and get into since it’s been so tough.
I am seeking new employment, I was recently laid off due to lack of work. I would very much appreciate any leads. I have a Bs in Construction Management and over 15 years experience with Revit and AutoCAD and 7 years of plumbing design. I have solid references and impeccable work ethic. I truly enjoy what I do. Working remotely the last three years has become a way of my life and supports our current situation well, therefore I am seeking a similar role but will consider other opportunities.
Hi All, has anyone used a resumé writer and got through to interview at any of the FAANG companies in the US? If so, I’d love a recommendation for the CV writer you have used!

Soooo, kevin virostek crashed our meeting. I thought about asking him about the layoffs but didn't have the balls to 😬 but I talked to our civilian account partner and she send we are just not seeing the revenue that we forecasted. A lot of companies are pausing (especially with the new administration coming in) and waiting to see how things play out. For example, M&A has basically dried up for us. The economy is obviously temporary, but we just can't afford to keep that large of a bench, hence the layoffs. However, GPS is hiring and we anticipate that 4 out of 5 people we hire will be IT. So if you have an IT background and are located in the D.C. metro area or are interested in relocating, come to the dark side of federal! 😈 hope that explanation helps.
*these. Not Jews! 😶
I must live in a bubble. I never hear these rumours.
Show some compassion people. We can all be in layoff shoes at any moment in time.
This post has as much value as butt lint... fun to watch go down the drain, but that's about it.
Thanks for the clarification EY1. For a minute I was stunned speechless.
Can someone clarify these layoffs and what's happening ?
Seriously what are you hearing be specific.
Only benchers be worried.
But just to clarify, what did you hear and from whom?
200 people from Chicago getting laid off sounds ridiculous
My partner told me that another round of layoffs are coming. This was back in Oct maybe? EY is very hush about Jews things. Gotta know PPEDs to get the scoop.
Grumble grumble op... rumor mill... grumble grumble
Long time benchers
Thanks EY1 - what a great summary!
So will there be more layoffs after mid year reviews?
If you are deemed off track and/or have poor utilization, you are going to have a bad time
