I’ve been tracking the recent tech layoffs. It’s hard too see so many talented people be affected. Has anyone seen data around the type of roles being most affected? It looks like Marketing Ops roles have been largely spared from the layoffs. What is everyone else seeing and experiencing out there? Marketing Ops has always felt relatively safe because most teams run lean anyway, but we’re living in strange times.
Did BCW NY just layoff it’s EA staff?! Seeing a bunch of these names on Connect and very upset that great people were let go!

Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?
It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.
Thanks in advance!
Anyone hear of any hold co layoffs yet? I’ve heard independent, but no hold co agencies.
I had offers from multiple companies like wipro, HCL, IBM and EPAM Systems. But I had choosen EPAM over these companies. Now this company is firing employees again I have to start the searching since I may be the next laid off. Since it's just 3 months would I get calls and interview will be scheduled for me? I know most of the companies have 6 months to 12 months rule to attend interviews. Also I rejected thier offers just 3 months back so would they prefer me? HCL Technologies Wipro IBM
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
Got a new job for a medium sized tech consultancy that seems like a great opportunity. Given the layoffs, should I be sceptical?
I have a 25K loan from my MBA. I paid off 100k whole, after graduation. 3 years ago, I moved my loan from federal to private ( SOFI) account. I recently lost my job. I have applied for unemployment, as the severance that I received will only cover for 2 months. Together my husband and I used to make less than 250k after tax. Now, with a loss of pay , we are going to make less. Do you think I will be eligible for Loan forgiveness?
Have there actually been any US layoffs? I have heard this should not happen til next month.
My therapist told me today that she thinks she might get fired. I broke down crying. I can't take another loss in my life. I was crying so hard I had to cut off the conversation. I don't know where to go from here. It's taken me almost a year to feel comfortable enough to open up to her. I don't know what to do or where to turn. I'm devastated.

Any advice on someone who barely squeaked thru undergrad gpa was 2.5 Yea I know it’s terrible but I underachieved to say the least. I’m 35 now and accomplished quite a lot in finance but looking at creating a path to becoming a fund manager. Already have my CFA and FINRA licenses but a MBA would look great too for my company. Any insight into “brand” of the school I choose or if more prestigious schools will even give me a 2nd look considering my terrible gpa? Thanks ahead

The depression is really starting to set in...it feels so impossible to even get noticed, let alone get an interview and then actually get hired. I’m trying to stay positive but it’s really hard.

Got laid off today. Ironicly is I have been looking for a new job for over a year. I guess it's good that I no longer work in a toxic environment & no longer for a criminal. Heartburn from anxiety.
