I recently accepted a new role after being laid off. I feel really blessed to have found a job in this climate. My new boss is wonderful! However, the role itself isn’t in the direction I want to go. I’m struggling with feeling guilty for continuing to job search. Any advice on staying somewhere for a good boss vs. switching jobs so soon?
Does EY GDS layoff if you’re on bench for a long time ???
It’s been more than a month I joined and still haven’t got any assignment/project !
Client is going to announce layoffs tomorrow as a result of our work. What have your teams done in regards to safety under these circumstances?
If you made it to a 2nd interview and just got fired from your current job, should you still disclose that you no longer work at the company in the interview, even though you applied while you were still employed?
Ok so another FAANG has confirmed layoff this week. Amazon joining the layoffs group with 10k layoffs!!
Hi ladies! There has been a nerve-wracking amount of restructure going on in my company, and I have a bad gut feeling about an impending layoff. I’m preemptively seeking out other opportunities in Product Leadership. If you are aware of anything, I would appreciate a heads up. I’ve been working in software PM for about a decade. Thank you!!
Hey team! So I was laid off from my SDR position about a week ago. A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.
What % of people in the agency business for 10-12 years have experienced 1 or more layoffs? Just got laid off for the 1st time last week and think it’s more common than I realized.
Hello everyone. I have 9 years of experience in iOS development. I have worked in swift, react native, reactjs, blockchain. Was working a product lead. Got laid off last week. Looking for an opportunity.
Thanks in advance!
What is a good interview answer for leaving a job after a few months when the real reason is that you’re sleeping with one eye open in hopes of not being on the chopping block after two rounds of massive layoffs? Company culture is at an all-time low, and it will only go down from here from what I’ve seen in the short months I’ve been there.
I’m 1 year post-MBA and was just let go despite top performance results—firm is not acknowledging COVID layoffs, though. Given 5+ YOE w/background in tech sales could BizOps be a fit? TIA!
Hey there, anybody who is a hiring manager or some sort of decision maker available to give me some advice?
My industry has slown down to almost a halt. They are doing massive layoffs. I need to jump into pretty much anything to stay “safe” for bills and my mortgage.
My question is that if I jump into something totally unrelated from what I’ve done ever, to just bridge the gap to a position elsewhere, does that look bad?
For all fired this year, do you put on your background check (for a job offer) that you were discharged? Heard EY doesnt share if you were fired or resigned, so am wondering what others are putting...

Am I making a mistake internally switching to FDD? Have an Audit partner who mentors me telling me Audit is better if you intend to stay long term: easier and more clear path to make partner, audits are recurring revenue, more diverse exit opps, FDD takes audit people but not vice versa, layoffs more likely in recession. Thoughts?

I may be relocating to the UK for a role after the new year, but my wife won't be able to come with me initially.
However she's just been laid-off from her Ops Management role for a tech company in the EU and needs a new role quickly. (just before Christmas!)
Would love if anyone has a role in Rome, Italy, or remote, or UK with Visa sponsorship (Tier 2 Skilled Worker) untill I can swap her onto a spouse Visa.
