How realistic is it to get a remote paralegal position with less than a year experience? I was just laid off from a small firm and loved the remote work environment…
I was laid off for the first time last wk and I feel completely empty. Does anyone have any advice? I've been talking with recruiters, trying to find connections, but it all feels hollow and hopeless.

Got laid off for pretty f’ing questionable reasons. Hard not to take it personally when I invested so much blood sweat & tears into the clients and the D&I culture. Ah well - off to bigger & better!
Does anybody else get so nauseous and anxious in the mornings that you just can’t get out of bed? I just think I’m going to get fired every single day.

From a recruiters perspective are applicants that got recently laid off being prioritized versus people that haven’t been?
Hey everyone, I have a situation, I work in the cosmetics industry as a formulation chemist and I’m currently getting paid 67k with 3 years of entry level experience. A recruiter just contacted me saying he could sign me up for a position as a chem Specialty Chemicals Industry at 80k so I would have to learn different material and I would probably start as the lowest level of the company.
Now my concern is that with all the hiring freezes/layoffs going on, I might get screwed… what should I do?
If I apply for a role externally, what info about me (rating, salary, fired or not...) the new company can request from HR of my old company? What is HR supposed to disclose and what not?
Found out that a peer was fired three weeks into the job because he used login credentials from previous employer to third party subscription to do market research. Previous employer hadn’t turned off his login credentials and don’t track because it’s a massive organization. Kinda harsh IMHO
Hi ! Looking for advice. I’ve been with a company in BC for 2.5 years, started support role, promoted to smb AE a year ago. salary is 65k with uncapped commission. We recently did layoffs, I was kept however there have been changes & meeting quota has become difficult & we have a way heavier workload. The perks are amazing but I need to make more money. Do you think I could get a role with more money with my experience that’s fully remote even in this “recession”..thoughts?
Hi everyone, really sorry to hear about the recent layoffs. I would be happy to refer to KPMG—please DM me if you’re interested.
Will Oracle layoff affect OFSS employees?? I am from FSGBU unit,MEA and joined on May mid , 2022 as a Senior Consultant(IC2).
In February of this year I was approached by a company out of Colorado that’s an AWS reseller (I love working w/ AWS Products). They offered a great 6-figure salary, unlimited PTO, full medical/ dental & Wellness benefits. Things felt too good to be true at first yet I know my worth and thought about time, a company finally saw my worth also, so I resigned from the company I spent over 12+ years with. Things were going great, then June I was placed on a bogus PIP (fully Corrected) then laid off.
There’s a ton of threads in this bowl but anyone recently laid off in an entry level position? How did benefits play out for you & job search going?
News outlets report 95% of current employees are thinking of changing jobs. The ad industry had massive layoffs last year, so a lot of people are looking for work.
Yet agencies are reportedly having trouble finding talent.
Assuming you’re offering fair pay, if you can’t poach or find talent in this scenario, your recruiters are incompetent, or you’re being way too picky.

Do I have body dysmorphia? I (27M) semi-frequently get compliments from friends/strangers on my looks but I’d rate myself a 7 at best when I look at my appearance in the mirror. This doesn’t bother me and I don’t stress over it. I do get attention from women when I’m out so I logically know I’m attractive enough - I just don’t see it myself. HOWEVER, when I am drunk enough I look in the mirror and see someone who looks like me but with slimmer/more attractive features. It’s very puzzling….
