There’s a ton of threads in this bowl but anyone recently laid off in an entry level position? How did benefits play out for you & job search going?
News outlets report 95% of current employees are thinking of changing jobs. The ad industry had massive layoffs last year, so a lot of people are looking for work.
Yet agencies are reportedly having trouble finding talent.
Assuming you’re offering fair pay, if you can’t poach or find talent in this scenario, your recruiters are incompetent, or you’re being way too picky.
Weird post after all the layoffs this week at WAU ... https://www.instagram.com/p/B1wjJzlAScX/
My last day with my current firm is this week. My firm’s IT people won’t be able to deactivate my email account for another week or so after I’m gone. I’d appreciate suggestions for an appropriate auto response to put on my email for my last day that doesn’t make it seem like I’ve been fired, but also doesn’t seem like I’m floating about going to another firm. Thanks in advance!
Should one be dating if they’re unemployed?
Was recently (within the last month+) let go as part of some layoffs due to reorg. Have been meeting people in person and on the apps, but it’s so embarrassing (as a male) to admit to being where I am so I just refer to my *previous* job in current tense.
Thoughts on looking for a new position during COVID? Worried about the economy getting worse and additional layoffs, and wouldn’t want to accept a new position only to be laid off shortly thereafter.
3 people were fired this week, and I've heard of 5 people leaving my group this week. Stuff is getting crazy...
Was recently fired from my Restructuring IB job a month before bonus meetings. Any idea what normal severance packages look like? No specific event caused it, they’d just overhired last year. Was only offered 4 weeks of base pay. From conversations with friends this seems low
Any USDC layoffs so far?
What about job security and layoffs in EY GDS ?
I gave notice today. One of the firm owners called to try and convince me to stay. She offered me a 15k raise with a decreased case load and said staying with them would be better given the economy and “chance of being laid off” at a smaller firm. Thoughts on this?
I took this role because I got laid off from my startup at the start of the pandemic. I’ve been in the role for one year and I have gotten promoted. Now I am being told by management that I need to wait another six months before I can get promoted and get back into a full lifecycle sales role. thinning about jumping ship - can anyone relate?
About the recent layoffs, I have not seen people from India posting such, about getting laid off from so n so company!?
Does the Indian Side of org, suffers equally when there's mass layoff from some good organizations?
Or is it like, the Indian side is employeed at far less packages, so to trim down from this side doesn't really have an affect?
I just got fired from a job. One reason was that I had too many doctor’s visits at the end of the day. How should I bill detaching retina to their hours?

Any thoughts on asking to repeat a class year if you eventually want to get promoted? I lateraled as a 5th year from a v5 to a firm in the amlaw 150 range 3 months ago in a pretty recession proof practice area. The firm has been awesome and I can really see myself working here long term. I’m the only midlevel so I also get a pretty good selection of matters I want to join. Any thoughts on if this would improve chances of promotion would be greatly appreciated!

I made an announcement during our team meeting that I'll be taking another job offer. My petty boss said, "Well now that we have a little more budget, the rest of you will be getting raises!"
Got an out of the blue offer from legacy big tech, have 0 background in the space, served very different industries historically and being hired for “consulting skills” vs. experience. It could be fun trying something completely new, but at the same time worried my career story will make 0 sense if this doesn’t work out as I have 15+ years in one industry and then making a hard right to a non glamorous tech company. Am I overthinking this?
I'm halfway through a contract position and enjoying it, and would like to transfer to full-time, but I worry about the 90-day gap in employment and that I wouldn't be able to find the same position remotely with this company. (have finance probs I won't delve into now.) Not sure how to a) tell my manager that I want to transfer to FTE but do not want to move or b) how/when to figure out my next move. Anyone willing to DM/maybe give some advice?
Hi all, I currently work for a mid-size non profit after graduating from university last May. My main role is recruiting, but I really would like to move to the ER side. My degree is not in HR, so I was going to stay at this role for a year to start working on my SHRM. Does anybody have any tips on moving into more ER related roles from recruiting? Thank you!
I am unsure if anyone could provide insight on this question but wanted to ask. I have a friend that currently has his real estate license and interviewing with liberty mutual as a claims adjuster. Is it possible to work in that field with a felony (10+ years ago)? Just trying to get some help for a friend, thanks!

Anyone in this thread entirely reroute their career paths? Where did you start and shift to? Wondering if it is worth starting over as a first year elsewhere. Love my team and people but not the career I want to have.
Anyone here from FDD in Toronto, Canada and know of teams looking to hire? Currently in my 4th busy season in audit. Internal transfers are quite a drag and take forever. I see postings for KP often but rarely any of the others.

Second year commercial real estate acquisitions analyst comp? What do you guys think? What about a first year acquisitions associate too? Thanks!
Moving from owning independent SFH to a multi family. The one I am reviewing was built in 1960s and recently renovated. Anyone have experience with these older buildings and can share their experience. My current properties are all built in 1990 and after so a bit nervous about what sort of problems I could encounter with an older build
Can anyone confirm my understanding of a partial Section 121 Exclusion? I bought a house 8 months ago and I am unexpectedly relocating to another city for work. The house is worth about $50k more than when I bought it. My understanding is my unexpected relocation is considered a hardship which qualifies me for a prorated Section 121 exclusion. 8 months out of the required 24 (8/24) = 33%. 33% of $250k = $82.5k excludable gains. This means I should end up without a tax liability, right?
Finally looking into buying a place - don’t even know where to get started. Can anyone provide some guidance on what their process was, or a checklist of things to do? Any help would be appreciated!
Got a mortgage rate of 4% at 8% down payment. Is this good enough, or should I keep looking?
Does anyone have a good recommendation for a real estate agent in the DC area (1st home buyer, primary residence (~700k-1m range)? Thanks!
Have mortgage rates stabilized for the short-term (4-6 months)? If not, how high could they go in that time?
Has anyone taken a cash out refi to purchase another primary home? Thank you for your help !
I’m done with being in public accounting. I want to transition to a career as a real estate agent since I love real estate and it highlights my personality more than anything I’ve seen, I’m very extroverted. I know the beginning is awful financially. Do you think it could make sense to RE full time and when tax season rolls around just do some 1099 work to supplement income if I have to? I have a wife and little kids
Any thoughts on the market peaking?
Looking to sublet a room in Medford, MA in a two bedroom apartment (separate bathroom). Rent $1,200/mo. Let me know if interested.
My spouse and I found a property we like on Zillow. Are there any fish out there with a Massachusetts real estate brokers license who would want to be our buyers agent and be willing to share the commission with us since we found the property already and generally don't need much of your time other than drafting the offer and P&S? Also, do people consider that a rude question? My spouse thinks we will offend brokers TERRIBLY if I even ask brokers to consider this.
Finally got my offer accepted, albeit it is a fixer upper, but still, glad to lock this down in the neighborhood I like. Also locked down my rate at 4.625% for 30th yr fixed… now hopefully inspection won’t uncover anything too messed up… 🤞
Have you ever had family members rent a place you own? Are there loopholes/ways to pay less taxes? I’m intending to buy a place in a country (original home) where it’s 20% taxes on your rental income and having my father (same last name) live in it and pay rent. Or who would be the right person to ask for advice - a tax professional?

What should you do if you see an error in the appraisal report (ordered by the lender)? Should you tell them about it, or just assume they have done their due diligence? It wouldn't impact the results
Rising mortgage rates are cited as one of the causes of a coming recession. When recession comes, to spur the economy, the fed will reverse course and decrease rates, in turn causing mortgage rates to also drop. So, is it better to buy now and refinance down the road? Or wait it out and buy later? I doubt that home prices will fall (ny/nj area) during that time, maybe just slow down to normal growth (3-5% per yr). Thoughts?
