Got laid off today. Ironicly is I have been looking for a new job for over a year. I guess it's good that I no longer work in a toxic environment & no longer for a criminal. Heartburn from anxiety.

I’m sorry! The same thing happened to me earlier this year. While job searching is tough, it’s definitely better than continuing to work in an environment like that—life is too short. Take some time for yourself and I’m sure you’ll find something much better in the future. Best of luck!

It’s been 5 months since I was laid off and it’s starting to really eat at me. It feels hopeless some days. I know I’m not alone, but wow this sucks.

Nice to see how other companies react to their leaders when layoffs/job actions occur. Never see these types of posts from consulting companies. Any reason why?

Blessed to have found a new job. Recruiter who ghosted me during the worst of my unemployment last year just reached out to say she has been laid off herself, asking me if I’m looking for a recruiter…

Moved here for an opportunity. The "agency" focus is on sports and the first round of layoffs happened this past week. I dont plan to stay to see myself and my department laid off. Wondering where should I go next, Ive got plenty of experience and I'm more than happy to send my book if needed. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

If you get laid off. Do your damndest not to take an offer or even reach out to the low-hanging-fruit agencies. Once you get hired there, you’re there. Take it from someone who is still there.

I had 60 day late payment of 35 bucks in Jan. It was new Amex Hilton card I opened for stupid points. It was reported and my credit score had been consistently dropping from last 6 months. It was 780 and now is 735. I realized this 3 months and been paying my credit card bills immediately. Infact I have overpaid each card to have negative balance so my credit utilization is almost zero. What else I can do to repair the damage. I am applying for homeloan and this is big issue to get best rate
