What do you call it when you buy a bunch of self-help books and are slow to read them (feel like I don’t have time, don’t know where to start because I have so much to fix), have a thousand self-help to-dos like meditating, exercising, stretching, pursuing various hobbies and struggle to stay consistent, and then shame yourself for not doing all of the above…what do you call that. Asking for me.
My firm is considering opening my small office 5/18 to those who do not want to WFH (county has lifted Stay At Home orders). My partners sound like they’ll be going in but safely and flexibly (masks/gloves; half days; no Fridays). The firm/my partners have been very respectful of those who want to WFH. I’m a lateral hire (~1 year), only junior associate in the office. No medical issues or kids at home but like WFH. Hours were good last month, but slower this month so far. When do I go back?

Hi everyone. I was a solution engineer at Oracle. I graduated from college in May and this was my first job out of college so the lay offs were pretty rough.

Getting laid off is tough—let's use this thread to lift each other up and share any inspiration or encouragement you've encountered while navigating this difficult time.
I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations.
I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks
Day #8: Why there are so many layoffs in tech? 🧐
We are in an uncertain period in the tech labor market, with big tech (Twitter, Meta, Amazon, etc…) companies laying off part of their workforce. Let’s understand what and why is happening.
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.
Morning! Being laid off sux, I been down this road 5x in my career it never bets easier.
Dust off contacts and make your rounds
* if you’re in a good position to take time off do some, seems we all need a mental break anyway
How do you not take a layoff due to RIF (involuntary reduction) personally? I was told it is not personal. All full time positions except 1 were let go. Contractors on the team still exist and so does the team. I can’t help but wonder whether performance was a factor and it makes me really sad even after a few months! Any examples of how laying off full time employees over contractors helps with cost cutting? Thanks!
Hey team! So I was laid off from my SDR position about a week ago. A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.

Absolutely. You should tell your family, friends and network. Chances are, they’ve been here before and know the way out. I know I was hesitant at first but then I sent an email with my resume to my close family and friends—one of my good friends called me to share that he had been laid off before and offered help in the form of referrals for job and resume advice.
I think you should tell the people whom you feel most comfortable with first and open up to your family, friends, and network gradually and as you see fit. For example, I wouldn't tell my parents and siblings right away because my mom would get very upset and probably stress me out even more. But I'd reach out to a few friends and colleagues to request any referrals or recommendations and when I have a more concrete plan of action and feel more grounded, then I'd let my parents and siblings know.
I told my friends, family, and my network. My parents provided some financial aid thankfully, and my friends offered important emotional support. My network has begun looking for jobs I can apply for.
No I did not. I’m very embarrassed that they will think I got fired or that I was an under performer.
I would share with people I am comfortable with and those who I think can help me. You don’t want to tell people who might not be empathetic and have to deal with their questions or comments. You need to take care of your mental state too
