Ok fine, market related to an extent but people do get fired/coached out for performance. No one talks about it, but it happens. Probably not to someone who is 0-1 year in tho.

you never overcome it, you just get used to it. eventually, you almost wish for it.

Best Advise ever !

Noone is going to fire you for one screw up. People get fired for repeatedly screwing up. As long as you don't repeat mistakes when your seniors give you feedback, you should be good.

I don't have to tell you obviously not to break any ethical or internal code of conduct rules. That's a one strike and you are out situation.

You exit.

As a senior partner, I always fear screwing up and getting fired.

You don’t. It should be a constant fear

Screw up and realize it’s not that big a deal

I'm an EA at a small global consulting firm (<25 people) with 5 years of experience supporting C-Suite execs. 3 months ago, the CEO put me in charge of our marketing efforts, and yesterday, he fired our recruiting coordinator and asked me to take over her job. I'm asking him for a raise on Thursday. I want to be a team player but am feeling like my job is a catch-all now. How would you define my role and how should I approach this conversation?

Was laid off in Sept. Unfortunately we will be seeing many more coming. It's what happens in a recession. Unfortunately I now also have my age against me. Not in a mentally good place at the moment.

I have awesome creative work from a client that has fallen into scandal. Specifically, they were a recently acquired beverage company who’s CEO was in a sexual scandal and then the company went into layoffs and rushed get more investor money to try to salvage the business. Needless to say, it didn’t work but the brand got sold to some super conglomerate.

All this to say, do I put the good work in my portfolio? Do I keep it password protected? What would you do?

My partner is an Occupational Therapist and she was laid off in March when NYC closed schools and therefore her clinic. Initially she claimed unemployment but they moved to tele-therapy so she’s been earning an hourly rate.

She had an employment contract to end of Aug with a 3 month notice period that they did not give to her. Could she possibly force them to pay out her contract?
