Feeling super low. Went through final rounds at 2 companies. The hiring teams sent multiple notes saying they are very impressed only to be told later that the job position is on hold. Back to square1

Wow, multiple commendations is quite an accomplishment - it’s a great gauge that your soft-skills are on point, which will serve you well throughout your career. Look at it this way, that job position is on hold but you’re already building your professional network - not square 1 at all.

Regarding layoffs, would anyone accept a pay cut to keep their current position? I wonder if that’s a viable solution when you have to cut costs, but also want to keep reasonably talented people.

I’ve been asked to weigh in on how to improve my firms parental leave policy. It’s currently 8 weeks paid for birth parent with an extra week for each year at the firm (up to 12 weeks total) and 2 weeks paid for non-birth parent. I’m in a major city, firm is a boutique that has been around a very long time. What would you suggest? Any studies or research you’ve seen recently on trends in parental leave policies also helpful. I’d like to have some sort of data to back up what I recommend. TIA!
