How long have you been on your project for? I make a point to check in with my manager every 6-8 weeks to get their feedback. So far it’s been reassuring and the only improvement I got was using excel lol. Not the same for everyone, but after a while your manager has trust in your abilities.

How much of this is pressure put on yourself through perception versus real pressure coming directly from your supervisor? Exploring that may be helpful as a start. We who suffer from anxiety often read things into situations that aren’t really there — I do it all the time but I’m getting better at recognizing it at least and talking myself down.

Got laid off on Monday. Felt okay at first, but now feel inadequate and useless since Julie Sweet mentioned the 25K that Accenture laid off were low performers. I know I wasn’t a poor performer, I got dinged for not doing enough projects in my practice, but still go top reviews for my projects. Just want to vent.

Going on 5 months since I was laid off and I’m slowing losing hope. I’ve exhausted all my contacts, my network, people not even in my network. I feel that I’m never not looking and I’m running out of options. I know I’m not alone by any stretch but somehow it doesn’t make it easier.

Laid-off 🐠: If you lost your job this month and contributed to a FSA or HSA, you have until Thursday (4/31) to spend those funds. It’s your pre-tax money, and will disappear if it’s not spend before then. This is something HR seems to fail to mention, and you may have several hundred dollars in that account.

I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.
