Is that even legal to be laid off while on medical leave? I think you can have a conversation and say that you recently learned about this condition, they can’t fire you for being sick …unless they want to pay you enough in settlement for you to retire.

Maybe ask that senior mentor to help you find a new role at a client. Very few people have the balls to tell their current firm it’s not a good fit, but those that do have had great exit opps from what I’ve seen. They can put you at a client where you can be a potential buyer one day. I would be honest.

Yea it’s legal. Talked to an attorney. Not advisable but legal.

Don’t think firm like Deloitte would try to get their reputation tarnished like that. Also, you can always say that it is a new condition

In need of some guidance re: a potential promotion. A senior writer on my team is leaving and I’m hoping to transition into that role (I’m mid level).

I set up time to talk to said manager. I have my reasons all set and ready but I’m worried they’ll say no on the spot. How can I best prepare?

I realized most of my anxiety or depression stems from a lack of career fulfillment. I recently started a new position and things were going great till they restructured my group and laid off a few on my team. Now I'm always looking over my shoulder and too concerned about screwing up. In the past, I have been laid off & I can't help reading too much in to every single email. My therapist made me aware of this but I'm looking for coping tools that someone in my situation has found useful. HELP!
