Yeah, they totally did. Of course leadership lies and says it was transitions for performance reasons. Now we don’t have enough people to staff sold work.

No layoffs. We offered various different LOA options and delayed start dates. The business has boomed lately, and we have been forced to accelerate those start dates again for returning consultants. Staffing is tight for sure, but has nothing to do with forced attrition given most CDC cycles are early spring and late fall.

Hi everyone,
I have been in the job market from last 4-5 weeks since I was laid off from
Microsoft as a recruiter. My experience is not great as I have applied for more than 75 jobs with the organisations I am interested in for the roles which are in mid level considering I have 5 years of experience. I am targeting for about CAD 90-110k annually and I am located in Toronto, Canada. Do you feel things will pace up this month and my expectations are reasonable?
