Hey everyone, I was recently laid off.. on November 3 actually. It’s a “temporary layoff” and I’m one of the 4 who got laid off. My return date is February 1st. Would you wait, and collect employment insurance (Canada) or start looking for a new job??
How easy is it to come across UX Writer & Content Designer entry level roles? The ones I find usually require a 2-3 year experience.
Finally got an offer for one in Washington, but I live in NY with my spouse. If I turn this one down, what is the chance that I come across another one again? Can I get referrals for anywhere else? Looking at the current layoffs in tech space, will turning this down be a risk?
Currently looking to get back into the Job Market after a layoff in May. I have Been consulting on temp basic but looking to get back into employment full time.

I was laid off this month from a US-based company where I've been a reporter for the past 3 years or so... I live in Europe. I wonder if I'm likely to have luck with other remote-friendly US companies. Or are we already past that?

Fretting over the economy right now. In 2008, how long did it take for massive layoffs to begin?￼
Almost positive I’m being laid off today. How can I negotiate severance? What’s the best course of action ?
I have not been on a project for over 3 months. Since I joined, I have been put in training. The training got extended by a month and now it's close to 4 months since I joined and without a project.
What should I do? People say that I'm lucky to get paid without doing any work, but it is stressing me out. I need the experience. The uncertainty is freaking me out, with rumours of layoffs and the certification program and all.
How do I get into a project? How long do I have to wait more?

He fired Vindman’s twin brother too. What a petty, small man this President* has turned out to be. Thank you GOP for showing your true colors in electing this dotard into office.
How do you survive in a company after layoffs? Feel thankful to have a job, but the people left are miserable and overworked and sad.
Recently laid off and looking for recruiters that specialize in media/strategy/advertising (both agency and client side). Sure there are others looking as well - would greatly appreciate any info.
I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations.
I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks

Please share your opinion (even on lifestyle there).

I keep starting huge projects or hobbies and being intensely into it for about 10 days/2 weeks, after which I forget about it and the project just lays around my house for months until I get interested in it again or I toss it out/donate it. It was fine when I was living alone but my partner is seriously frustrated with how messy the house gets and how much I spend on supplies for these things. How can I be less impulsive OR how can I stay motivated past the 10 day mark?? TIA
Feeling really frustrated by a recent Bain post asking for advice on dealing w micro aggressions from an SM.

Does anyone have any resources on leadership soft skills (ie - managing change, conflict mgmt, and giving feedback)? I’m trying to search for a facilitator’s workshop kit that is already built out and a facilitator can pick up and start teaching the course with the facilitator’s guide, presentation, and activities.
