-Execs worried about attrition after bonuses were cut/reorg/layoffs/work only increasing
Can anyone share how they have terminated/laid off during a virtual only environment? Specifically several people at once. How does the process/logistics look? Wondering what is the best process/logistics to take for those being let go. Also, for those who stay, what worked best -communication wise? How have you handled equipment and any other security considerations given that the person(s) are not in the office.
Parents over used my credit card causing a negative balance. Got really heated at my parents and my fiancé was wondering why I am so mad. Embarrassing to tell him honestly that my parents have financial problems. I know it’s not good to lie or withhold the truth from him. I frequently get really mad over the phone because of my parents being financially dumb, so he will continue to see this side of me. Anyway to deal with this?
I got laid off today 🥲 would really appreciate anyone who can help refer UX or product designer role 🙏
Please DM for resume
I will have my portfolio shareable sometime this week. 🙏
1. Are people being laid off actually good or are these companies using this to get rid of lower performers?
2. Contractors not converting to full-time hire - is this because they suck?
Building a new team and getting lots of applications from people who were laid off.

Does it violate any ethical rules for federal attorneys to use services like FedRooms (specifically the leisure travel options)? My instinct is no, but I do not have a great handle on the ethical rules federal attorneys must follow.
Take a break from this crazy world and curl up with a good book! Not something you have to read, but something that you want to read because you chose it.

In my 6th year, I've gotten to the point where I will simply say no. There are 3 partners that like to ask me to help on projects but they're terribly disorganized and poor communicators. Now I just tell them I can't help on their projects - too busy, not enough capacity, whatever excuse. . I've got plenty of hours without their work. Anyone else do this?

I am seeking advice. I have currently taken my passion for fitness/nutrition and started coaching a few clients as a side hustle. I have a unique medical background that can help me be relatable and knowledgable for clients. What advice can someone give for the best ways to market myself? Because of my medical background, I invasion helping clients who struggle with illnesses. Is this too narrow of a client list. Should I be more open to helping everyone or stick with what I know?

Recommendations for pages/sites to network on?
I’m sure people here have been in a situation where they were looking for another job while they were pitching some big ideas with their current agency. These are ideas you’d be proud to have in your book.
If one of these ideas was sold and you started getting offers from other places, what did you do? Did you stick around and see the work through or did you accept the offer and ask to be credited to some degree? Did you regret your decision or was there anything you wish you did differently?

Advice for a mentor? Want to give some encouragement to my mentee. Not much in the book yet and having a tough time finding a job.

Is taking a job (any job) at an agency the best move to make $ while book-building?
How are you handling police sympathizers/apathetic social media behaviors from professional connections? I have been purging EVERYBODY who pulls the “all lives matter” or “I support our police” card, but when it comes to industry connections idk how to handle it. I don’t want anything to do with them and want to do my part as a non-POC to call them out, but my city’s agency scene is so small & close knit I wouldn’t want to be blacklisted or make an enemy. How have you been approaching this?

What to do when an account director is trashing you professionally to coworkers, especially if you’ve never worked with him... it’s really weird.
I’ve been at my current agency for a few years now, it was my first job out of college. I’ve never been truly happy here but in the past few weeks I’ve been really miserable. My biggest issue is that what I do now is so niche that while I’m doing a good job, it hasn’t prepared me to work anywhere else. I’m always looking for new jobs but worry about losing the stability of what I have, however I know the longer I stay the less likely I’ll be to find something else.
I suck at networking. I’ve got a few of contacts who I want to work with or at least help open opportunities for me. How do I tell them without sounding demanding or looking like I’m taking advantage?
