Unemployment would actually be enough to cover my monthly expenses.

Mi old coworker did. I jumped ship before they decided to do layoffs but she can’t wait for them to lay her off. She hates it there (so did I) and can’t wait for them to let her go smh

I did pre covid and also I'm in a country where I would get a heavy severance if laid off without cause. I'm very happy to have a job right now.

Yes I did, last year and in fact did get laid off last year. I needed to break out away from the political nonsense that Partners were playing.

Yes, I’ve actually requested to be laid off, but hasn’t happened yet.

Nope, just flat out told my manager and director that I would like to be laid off. I don’t think they’re taking me seriously, though I’ve said in several occasions that I’m completely serious.

Only cause I want to live off a severance for a bit

Yep. Just got laid off today. And I was saying would be nice to get away from the bull Shri but wanted to leave on my terms. Practice lead told me I was laid off and hr never contacted me so literally have no details on my package

Not wished to get laid off, but I have wished to be asked to roll off my project. Actually, that happened last year and I was so excited to leave the toxic client and team environment I was in. I lost all my motivation and my performance started going down the drain, and people noticed. I think the reason why I didn’t get in trouble or called out is bc my track record was impeccable. Top performer. Not to say I was safe from getting fired....but, being well-liked my my PPMDs helped

Thanks for sharing. Hope you have better project now.

offer in hand friday, accepted offer monday, got laid off tuesday, hot buttered popcorn

Greenhorn question: if you suspect a lay-off in the future may be possible, is it better to quit on your own terms beforehand because it looks better to your next employer than being laid off?

Something to keep in mind is if you voluntarily separate then you won't get severance pay and unemployment benefits.

Hello Fishes,

How to deal with a 90 days notice period when you are in a job search?
I get calls from recruiters, but they won't respond after hearing about the 90 day notice period.
I feel stuck in my present company even after having relevant skills.
