Really? I hadn't heard this. Not sure what to think...

Oh wow!

That will be epic move for them specifically from business continuity planning perspective. Currently in US the laws are strictly towards 2-4 week notice period which leads a lot of anxiousness for employers specifically of fb size where there are a lot of positions need to be filled asap. That's a challenging situation. However many EU countries have notice period based on years of service for employer. Simply put an employee working for 2 years will have 1 month notice period however someone who is having 8 years needs to have 3 months notice period. I think this removes the burden of employer to replace a critical resources specifically on large scale. I do agree its a bit unethical from employee point of view as someone working for a company for 12 years will actually need to give 5 months of notice which is too much. I think these laws will help fb with hiring quality people while giving them enough breathing time in recruiting process.

Ohk... My focus was more on the metaverse part rather than the employee count. But, thanks for the insight!

I'm scared yet fascinated

Why is everyone getting scared though?

Not feeling it to be honest

Has anyone here used a service to help you find a new job? I’m looking at one where they source and apply for jobs for me. They’ll also help me rework my resume, LinkedIn, and other materials, as well as interview coaching. I’ve been looking for a new position on my own with no luck for the past 6 months. The downside of this service is they charge a commission based on the salary for the job they place you in. Thoughts or advice?

I’m interviewing for a role that is open to both remote and in-person (when it’s safe) work. Should I give salary expectations based on cost of living in the city where the office is located or based on where I’d live working remotely? Cost of living in the office location is a lot higher than where I’d live but since they are also considering in-person candidates, I know the budget is there.

What do directors expect from junior creatives? I’m currently collaborating on a commercial with a senior copywriter and they are cranking out scripts like a factory.

I’ve only been in the role and the industry a few months now. But I’m feeling a bit discouraged. Is this imposter syndrome or do I need to reconsider my career?

I’m transitioning careers from Java Developer to Business Analyst. I have experience being a Business Analyst for 6 months in one of my previous project. Are there any BAs who can guide me on how to get a role and what study materials would be relevant for me? I’m slowly getting demotivated since the interviewer told me I’m not good at translating requirements which makes sense because I mostly took notes and did documentation at the previous BA role I did. Any advice would be helpful!
