So this happened. Since getting laid off I’ve been applying to every job that I believe I’m qualified for. 30 minutes after I hit send I received an email from the company stating that I did not have the right qualifications for the job. No one from the company looked at my portfolio. How do I get past the algorithm and get my work noticed by a real person?

Any advice for approaching a maternity leave conversation when my company has no policy, no HR dept and I have no contract? I’m a partner shareholder in my company (we’re not in the US), 19 wks pregnant. I know the time off and pay I’d like to negotiate, but my partners are male and weird about money. I’m underpaid in a very senior 6 yr position, my job is stressful and around the clock, so I want proper leave. I can’t afford childcare and our govt stat leave is terrible, it won’t pay my bills.

I have a gov law job with an offer to go to a great firm as a mid-level associate. Worried that if COVID continues, I’ll get laid off (much less likely at my gov job). Should I wait or go?

Seeing posts about transitioning from PA to Law a lot lately and i’m not gonna lie, I thought I wanted to be a lawyer as a kid but never pursued b/c of confidence issues (knew a few lawyers and where I was at in life at 17, I didn’t think there was a chance to become a lawyer). Now I am in Big 4 and still think about being a lawyer. So i’m now considering law school. I went to a really small undergrad, but graduated cum laude and took a few accounting courses at a big school (continued..)
I was laid off fall of last year, allegedly due to covid. I just saw that they re-listed my position and now am devastated and doubting everything about my career. I got good reviews at this and my previous jobs but many are cowardly about giving honest feedback. I took a step down and started a new job recently so I’ll be ok in the long run but the job I was laid off from was my “dream job”. I don’t have strong family/friend support, exacerbated by covid isolation. Any wisdom/advice?
Do you think it is quite possible to get fired by asking too many questions as an experienced senior 1? If so, i might get fired after this busy season.
Has anyone experienced this before or could shine light on my situation. I feel left in the dark :/ Been interviewing with a company, finished final rounds, team was excited to have me on, and finished background checks. Expected an offer within a few days like they told me they would. It’s been 3 weeks and the recruiter told me there’s nothing wrong with my application, the team still wants me on board, but they’re having internal issues which is delaying my offer?
If I join a company in Canada using Intra-Company Transfer work-permit (i.e. there will be no LMIA involved). Will that 1-year work in Canada still give me points for Express Entry PR?
Can Anyone from Deloitte who checked the loophole to find out your raise before you were notified confirm if it was the same?
There is no reason to take your foot off the gas. Leadership thinks it’s done enough because it put out a video about D&I headed by a Karen. Diversity still means white woman or Indian male. Continue to agitate. Document what your PPMD / leadership/ firm have promised about diversity & what they’ll do to support Black & African American employees. If they put out a 12 month roadmap, make sure you’re there 12 months + 1 day later holding them accountable to what was promised.
Seeking Advice: To MBA or not? ~5 years total work experience post Bachelors in consulting (Finance + Consumer engagements) and FAANG (current - strategy, ops & analytics). Happy in my current role and on a post mba level comp package. That being said every exec in my department is a top 5 mba graduate, so I’m wondering if in the long run it will serve me well to do an mba or not? Short term doesn’t make much sense, but in the long run?
Seeing as WFH has no end in sight for my company, it’s time to invest in an office chair. Is there such a thing as an aesthetically pleasing office chair? Looking at Laura Davidson, but unsure of quality and comfort. Anyone have one?
I’m getting more responsibility at work, as in playing a key role forming creative direction, developing testing plans, and more client-facing in general — which is mostly great. It’s the...(cont)
