GTB is losing/laying off employees left and right. Rumor is that Ford is unhappy. But I love my department. Do I jump a sinking ship before threat of another layoff.... or do I ride it out and pray?

GTB is probably too much like Ford itself, ironically. Too large, slow, inefficient, set in its ways. Listen to your instincts.

Sinking ship scenario aside, Ford has made it a top priority to clean up their supply chain across all LOB’s. It’s a cost savings and efficiency effort, that plays a major part in all this

I feel like I need to switch roles to a non client facing role to be realistic in my health limitations. How do I make the switch and have the convo with w my mentor?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

How do you explain that you’re available immediately without revealing you were laid off from your previous job?

A friend was told their firm will cut ties EOY if certain things don’t improve. Friend had planned to quit in the next year anyway (to start their own business), so there is no real incentive to bend over backwards. Friend’s goal is to keep the income for a little longer, but to minimize conflict / headaches. What’s the best move here? Wait until EOY and take the severance? Give 6 / 9 / 12 months’ notice now? Is there such a thing as too much notice? Could too much notice backfire?
