Not yet. But it’s only week two of the lockdown.

All agency salary cut so far. Hoping that means no lay offs.

I had a salary cut as well. I wonder if the salaries will ever come back or if agencies will enjoy these new lower rates for the long term.

Yes. 70% of my agency staff was terminated last week.

Wow

I am having the hardest time pivoting back into full time recruiting. I have 13 years of experience, but was laid off in May 2020 due to pandemic “cutbacks”. I took a year off, did some other work and worked for a friend part time who has a small RPO doing recruiting (specializing in placing POC in tech). Now that I’m trying to get a full time recruiting position, I’m getting nothing but rejections. I’ve been a Snr Recruiter, Snr Recruiting Manager and Principal. Not sure what I’m doing wrong?

Joined my firm 1.5 years ago (3rd year, lit) and have been slow since Day 1. Missed my hours target last year and am on track to be just as slow this year. I am staffed on a few cases but they’re quiet right now, and I regularly ask for work just to be ignored or told “thanks, but I have nothing.” Reviews have been good, I’m just not working enough. I like the partners I work with, and the work they do, but I am scared I’ll be fired if I miss my hours again this year. Should I be looking?

Tax question for any Accenture people who were part of the layoffs in August...did you see anything weird with state withholding on your W2? I relocated from VA to NJ in early 2020 and my state withholding switched to NJ when I moved. However (and I never noticed this at the time), all of my earnings, including severance, paid out PTO, and COBRA true up, are shown as taxable income in both states. My tax accountant is scratching his head.

If you’ve been laid off during COVID or in the past, do you tell everyone you know or just people who can help you? I have been laid off due to COVID and tried to tell most people in the industry so I can find work, but I’m finding it emotionally draining to tell each person in my life, including every friend, relative and neighbor, that I am unemployed. Sometimes I just say everything’s fine when they ask me in order to save face and avoid their pity. Is this normal?
