Accounting

Can you be fired after putting in your notice in California)?Specifically if you put it in before/during the holidays. I’m wondering if I could get screwed for firm holidays by giving advanced notice.

Make sure the effective date is after the holidays. Yes, they can let you go early but would need to pay for the days off. Otherwise, they are inviting a law suit. Holidays and floating holidays they would have to. Firm holidays they probably won't.

You get 2 weeks and your PTO. If you quit 12/1 don’t think you get a Christmas gift

I don't think I'm super amazing at my job, but I'm also not so bad that I would be fired. I'm just..average and I haven't been able to get to that rockstar level. The issue is obviously me, I don't really grasp certain areas and I am decent but not great at client relationship. Assuming that my team, work life balance, and salary is decent, is this a sign that this isn't for me? Been in agency world for a while in a few different roles and I feel like I've just been average in all of them..

Do freelancers do better in recessions? (Possibly as backfill for all the layoffs.) Anyone still here who survived the last one around ‘08?

Being laid off has been the most difficult thing that I have ever had to go through. I am going through some difficult times. I hope that I will be able to find a new consulting job soon.

I was trying hard to get a new job in NYC before pandemic but obviously had to put all that on hold. Now I’ve been at my first agency for over 3 years now and am worried I’ll be pigeon-holed in the niche creative I’ve been doing. I still want to go to NYC eventually but don’t know when or how. Should I just be counting my blessings that I have a job? Is it awful that I almost wish I was laid off so I could finally just jump ship and move to NYC and make it work?

Im a huge booster for Chiat LA, always have been, always will be. (I feel like how theyre valued is a metaphor for how creativity is valued in the industry.) Does anybody have any news, or goss, for how they’re weathering the virus times—layoffs or lack thereof? I feel like they were getting a pretty good head of steam going and then this crap.

Do you have any suggestions about a good resume building websites? I searched on here and couldn’t find anything. New to the market (terrified of getting laid off) and need suggestions. Thank you.

I remember back in early April when covid really took its grips and people were told no layoffs in Q2. A PPMD on here commented that it’ll take 3-6 months before the real layoffs start. Crazy how true

With about 25k in emergency savings and monthly costs of 2.5k/month, I’m actually not too worried about potential layoff. Is this naive??? Or just privilege.

My friend referred me to a position at fb and I didn’t get the interview. However someone reached out for an exploratory conversation to “identity alternative paths to the company”. Has anyone been through this before and will it materialize into any sort of interview?

Market really just forgot what happened on Friday in Europe and Asia over the weekend. Needless to say, all the short levels were blown out. We are seeing a big pattern develop here this morning. A megaphone pattern. If this is a top, a turn will develop at the top of it. If this is a continuation pattern, we will just keep going up. My inclination is that we filled a cash S&P gap from early June. And, we will see selling this afternoon. I'm looking to sell the top of the megaphone.
