Usually the only thing that can be said is you worked from day XX to day YY. Even the reason for separation can't usually be discussed. If you signed separation paperwork, there was likely a clause that said you agree to say nothing disparaging about the firm and the firm will treat it as a layoff versus a firing and will not say anything disparaging about you.

Fired or laid off? If laid off no worries. If fired most companies will not release that info anyway.

Is everything ok EY? Talk to your coach or partner if anything is wrong.

Only issue if firm fires someone the current employees cannot provide recommendation in some firms ...

@DD - the firm can't prevent all employees from from recommending the individual. HR might prevent it on official letterhead or something, though.

Hi Fishes,

How easy/difficult it is to change base location in SAP. I interviewed for a position where I have given preferred location as gurgaon but I was offered a position in Bangalore . It's a good role and i have really less experience so I didn't want to let go of the opportunity. I want to know how easy will it be to change location to Gurgaon as my husband and inlaws are really unhappy with the decision and might force me to lose this opportunity.
Any tips will be much appreciated.

Went on a final interview today and the interviewer yawned through my presentation, was so BRUTAL with feedback, and was just super low-energy. This dude picked apart my entire presentation and frowned through all of it. Up until this point, everyone that I interviewed with said the presentation was great, but some things that need improvement. I just don’t understand how it’s normal that it’s expected that you make presentations and work for free— just to have someone take a huge shit on you.

Hello there, i’m wondering if anyone on this group has experience opening your own agency? I was laid off in April and had been freelancing ever since.

How do you get more clients and dealing with the sales/pitching process on your own? also as WOC i don’t feel like have the right network to tap into for higher earning projects
