Are there going to be layoffs .....
Are firms done with their performance-based separations and layoffs yet? I have been holding my breath because I’m unassigned from now through the end of the year.
Best way to prep for the McKinsey PEI interview?
Laid off at Ogilvy yesterday
I started a new job and was originally supposed to be on two accounts but got pulled off one to focus on the other. It’s now giving me a ton of anxiety. I just know if we loose that one account, I’m laid off whereas if I’m more diversified I have a better shot not being laid off. We’re not in review or anything so my question is…am I being paranoid or am I right to be worried?
I just moved to a foreign country and I am really in need of a job. I applied to a big 4 and spent weeks making it through interviews only to get turned down, because they wanted someone with big 4 experience. How can I get big 4 experience if a big 4 isn’t willing to hire me? I feel defeated.
Do you guys have any tricks to assess professional maturity in interviews? I am always surprised by the difference between interview performance and what candidates deliver when the show really starts

What are the best reasons to go full-time after freelancing? I started freelancing a month ago after I was laid off thinking it would just be temporary but I’m really enjoying it so far. My stress levels are lower and the money is better. I have a few full time opportunities in the mix and I’m trying to gauge if I should go back to full-time or stick with freelance. For those who have taken a full time gig after a successful freelance run, what did you base your decision on?
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
I had 9 rounds of interviews with a company only for them to make a shit offer by the end of it!
After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?
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.
Asking to the Indian folks, for the ones laid off or having issues and having to go back home, how is the job market currently in India? Any of you tried looking around?
Earlier, someone posted about being desperate to find something new... I think we should have two posts - one for people employed but miserable, and one for people laid off and searching. Myself?

What companies use product principles in their development process. LinkedIn is big on this - every PRD lists out “product principles” at the top and they’re heavily discussed. I think it’s an odd part of the product culture at LinkedIn and an curious what other companies do this.

How is tech consulting in big 4 different from other consulting firms like ibm, capgemini etc?
So I’ve been a nurse for about a decade ( med-surg, ER, Trauma etc) . A recent law school grad ( didn’t take a bar yet because I am not mentally ready to sit for one). I am currently a Risk Manager at a huge healthcare system and my work overlaps with the hospital’s claims and litigation department. And I am building a network of connections. Medical Malpractice is what I want to focus on later. Where does one start best? Defense? Plaintiff? I heard good things and bad things about both.
