Definitely! It’s a rite of passage. A character-builder. A learning experience. I was once fired because a client found a spec spot I made for their account. Another time, it was because mechanicals went out the door without me purchasing the images first (a long time ago when I was a terrible account guy). You should try it!

A very long time ago before being in advertising, I was working in-house for a really shitty company. (Won’t name it here, but they were very conservative Christian). There was a printout of a bunch of silhouettes of people doing different things and one was a cheerleader jumping in the air. I took a sharpie and colored in a very pregnant belly on her.

I didn’t last much longer.

Work Two Jobs: I’m about to accept an offer from another Bank, could I hypothetically work at my current bank until they realize that I’m simply not working enough/ doing anything and eventually severance me? I would meet 100% of my obligations at my new shop, and just not do anything with my old one.

I don’t care about burning bridges. What are the ramifications of this? What do you think the likely hood that my new shop would ever find out. I work remotely and so I feel like I could swing it

Anyone else notice a trend with the mass amounts of layoffs in tech? Why are all their resumes so jumpy? Not like 2-5 years jumpy, like few months at a time jumpy? But still can land a position with similar tech giants? IMO, lots of these people get hired by their rich friends, stay a few months before someone realized they aren’t qualified and were just a recommendation from a current employee. Then repeat that process over and over until your company is down 50%

Hello fellow designers!

I was laid off back in August and I have been trying to get a product/UX/UI job ever since then. With the recession and all of the crazy things that are happening right now it has been even harder.

Is anyone hiring a mid-level Product/UX/UI designer?
I have 3 years of experience as a UX/UI Designer and I am available to start working immediately! (Remote work is preferred since I live in Phoenix, AZ and there are not a lot of tech jobs here)

TIA ♥️

Hi fishes,
Has coforge fired any employees in 2022?

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.

Why is it recommended you give a company 2 weeks notice when you are leaving but at the same time, when they are laying you off/firing you, they typically do it on the spot. I have known countless people layed off/fired on the spot over the years (especially after busy season) and everyone else when they leave give 2 week notice. Why should we relinquish power to corporations? Corporations really don't care about us. They pretend they do.
