Does anyone have any advice for corporate juniors who were unexpectedly laid off? I thought juniors would be the last to go because of our billing rates.
Job transition question: I recently accepted an offer for a new role with Merrill Lynch, the following day I was fired from my previous employer. I haven’t filled out the updated work history background check info yet. The reason for termination was due to performance expectations not being met. Should I reach out to my new employer and let them know that I’ve been terminated? Should I just put the termination update on the background check form and leave it at that? Wondering what I should do.

Can anyone honestly say if the CPA is necessary or not? I’m burnt out from undergrad and grad school and can’t see myself studying for the CPA for a while…but don’t want to get fired. I don’t plan on staying until Manager, hoping to move into IB.
Recent graduate was laid off, have applied to dozens of jobs and still have been unable to land an offer. I interview well have a strong resume. Very concerned I might not get hired. Any advice, tips or general comments are welcomed.
Startup I’m at just went through first round of layoffs. Actually come from a CPA background and currently in a data analyst role. Should I start interviewing to be safe? Will probably survive even another round but just thinking ahead.
If you were recently laid off or looking for a new position: we are hiring for two management consultant professionals with at least 5 years client facing experience. Please DM me if interested—thanks!
These are some interesting elementary school lessons about matter, like making homemade butter! https://www.superteacherideas.com/science7-matter.html
One thing I struggle to remind myself of is you can only lose so much from a bad investment but gains from a good investment are (sorta) unlimited. If your starting position is $10,000 and the value halves, you're down $5,000. But if the value of a separate position doubles, you're now up a total of $5,000.
I think learning this will help me reach my FIRE goals by eliminating a lot of emotion and impulse in my investment decisions.
What other "life lessons" do any of you have?
How is eBay doing in this market? Any expected layoffs? I have a SDE iffer with Global shipping team in eBay and considering making a move.
Went to HR to complain about horrible manager. Will I get fired or let go? I was just speaking up for myself.
Question for anyone who was laid off but found a new job:
If you request unemployment between the offer and starting, do you not receive the benefit? Worried about stating I've received an offer and that I'm no longer looking, though my new employer is the one having me wait a few weeks.
What would you do? I was recently reached out to by an exec I worked for at another agency. He’s at a new agency and looking for an EA to assist him, the new president and another exec. However the agency itself is not doing well- no new biz wins, big layoffs recently, terrible reviews on Glassdoor. I like my current agency enough, however, very much don’t like the 2 execs I assist. Would you go rather work for good execs at a bad agency? Or stay at a decent agency but awful execs?
How do the tech layoffs impact other companies?
Please, I am looking for ideas to motivate a virtual class. We want to set up a rewards program. However, we don’t want to reward for what the are supposed to complete. We’re looking for above and beyond. Example; helping a fellow student with technical support. We also thought of homework passes & lunch with a teacher, because we are a virtual school independent study program. We see students for a short amount of time on zoom. It takes a lot of work to set up the videos and lessons.
Anyone who can recommend a driving school/package? I can see several websites such as Passmefast and Red Driving school, so not sure of how to select. I am a beginner so ideally I’d like some theory and many hours of driving lessons. I am based in East London. Cost is also a factor… the prices here are extortionate compared to my home country.
Here is how KPMG handled an announcement today re: a RIF:
We’ll be laying off people. We can’t tell you when. can’t tell you how many people. We can’t give you any details. But we WILL send you an email after this call with FAQs and the severance policy.
...no email was sent. So, now 1,000 employees are going to bed tonight confused and irritated AF.

HOA - doing something without approval.....was planning to change my windows without hoa approval but my neighbour snitched. I came clean to the hoa and now I need to go through a 2 mo approval process and they might not even approve my windows. I paid 7k for them. I am now feeling regret for not just ignoring the hoa email and then still installing and dealing with the fine on the back end ? Thoughts? I’m also worried now that I’m on some radar. Am I overthinking this?
