If you know your performance is being monitored after being reprimanded earlier in the month and the HR randomly sets up a meeting with you at the end of the month regarding a review of your performance, is that generally a good thing or a bad thing?
I feel like I'm about to be fired and I'm really anxious about it. At the same time, I've kind of lost care because I've been battling depression and anxiety for a while and I've recently realized I've lost interest in the legal field altogether.
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
Hi all! My company just laid off 5% of the workforce. I was safe but I am looking for new roles. I’m in final interviews for a company but worried about making moves because of the impending recession.. what are your thoughts? Make the move or stay put?
I have been going on interviews and noticed 2 department heads already assume I was laid off or fired due to a 4 months gap. I explained I left my last role due to short term health issues that have been resolved. Not even sure how to respond when they assume. Any advise? Thanks!
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??
My old agency is soon going to be releasing work that was originally my art director and my idea - got laid off during COVID. It probably has changed since we left, but can we still ask to have our names on the project?
Laid off job seeker! Let go from well known late stage startup. Sales Development Manager, and would like to continue in the XDR/sales leadership route.

Anyone around the Philly area want to be friends? Recently got laid off, and don’t have any friends around the area so yeah🙃
Question for those that are familiar with how severance pay works. I received a package a while back and was paid bi-weekly severance. The payments ended a few months ago but just the other day I had a severance deposit. Curious if it’s possible to get additional payment at this point or does this look like a mistake? I know the logical answer might be to just call but I’ll be honest in that I am still looking for a job and this would definitely help me. Thanks for your advice!
Can I still collect unemployment if I am vacationing outside the country laid off? If I am still searching for work remote can I still certify benefits? Thanks for any help.
Someone under me was laid off. I referred her to the position I turned down. She got it. Happy for her. Can I ask what her offer was/what she’s making? I know I shouldn’t need to.....
Deloitte partners circa whenever they realized they could let everyone leave on their own before the recession, instead of having to pay severance for 300k people.
Saturday marked 14 years since I was fired and started my own agency. Getting fired did not break me then and this pandemic is not going to break me now. Stick with it, everyone.
For those of you who got laid off, did you hear anything about it in advance? Did you expect it? It seems like most people who got laid off were blindsided. P.S. I'm sorry if this happened to you.
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?
Can anyone help by answering How's business growth looking for Workday? With the Layoff season going on, I'm a bit nervous joining Workday in a few weeks.
Have there actually been any US layoffs? I have heard this should not happen til next month.
Round of layoffs happening at 360i today. Don’t worry guys, take it as a blessing in disguise - you all deserve better than that place. ❤️
Project Leader in team meeting: “If there’s no work for this team to do (for the remainder of the project), then your jobs will be gone.” A few weeks later, after completing everything planned for the MVP, our team was laid off.

Hello all! I am an ophthalmic technician in Orlando FL with 10 years of experience across many specialties including refractive surgery, retina and glaucoma. I was a scrub tech for 2 years and I have set up an entire practice from the ground up (entire OR and all diagnostic equipment, hiring and training staff, etc.) I am currently making $25/hour but I feel like with my experience I should be making more. Can anyone share their experience with ophthalmic technician pay rates/ranges? Thank you!
My wife and I each just got new prescription glasses and sunglasses and spent $1,500 after insurance. Went to LensCrafters and all frames were “designer”. Did we get ripped off lol?
IBM offered me 06B band and 14.5 LPA with 2 lac joining bonus. Recently I'm negotiating with them for at least 22 LPA. Haven't heard from them it's been quite a time now, will they consider my ask or I'm I asking too much.

Currently a relationship banker at Chase making 70k (45k base + commission) in Miami FL. Currently licensed with series 6 & 63. Been feeling stuck in role and recently got offer from Merril Lynch for the Wealth Management Banking Specialist role with 85k base . My market director gave me a counter offer to stay and make me Private Client Banker at an affluent branch. What is the best choice career wise? I want to grow in wealth management and possibly the advisor route.
M planning to ask my deloitte india hr to renegotiate my current offer using a counter offer. Till now i have an email confirmation of the counter offer in which the salary details are present, is it safe to proceed, 2 weeks left to join
Am I crazy? I am barely cracking 35 hrs a week, getting paid over 400k TC and tons of autonomy. I am bored out my mind and looking for opps outside consulting even if it means a cut in pay/title and increase in workload.
Deloitte GPS vs AFS?

After 11 years together (4 being married), my husband told me today that he wants to have a child. I’m freaking out about it. I’m not opposed, I’m just terrified of how this will affect my career.

Book recommendations: Hi 🐠, can you all recommend a few books that can help me learn a little about the following topics?
- How to go about ideating a new line of service or product? (Understanding market needs and viability of the product, designing/scoping the product, etc)
- How to define a business case for funding an idea?
- How to launch a product and/or a startup?
Starting a Strategy role and would like to use the down time to prepare. Open to other books on strategy concepts as well :)
New retention ideas 🤣
Anyone working at, or familiar with, Wood, Smith, Henning, & Berman in NY willing to share any insight/info? TIA.
I hear lots of very positive feedback from middle and higher leadership in my business as someone at the front of my career—but have very few action items to show for myself in return. No projects, no solid opportunities. Starting to feel like being black and gay is one of the reasons why. How do you all cope?
Scheduled a staycation with the wife this week. Daughter spiked 106 fever and son threw up down MY shirt last night…
Compliance folks: what do you use for customer and vendor due diligence (OFAC/SDN checks)? Looking for alternatives to Lexis Nexis, preferably something that can be used for both customer and vendor dd. I’m aware of OneSumX (for customer dd only?) and Apex Analytix (for vendor dd). Thoughts? Thank you!

I recently “came out” at my ad agency and listed my pronouns as they/them on zoom and in my email signature. I’m not expecting perfection at all and I’ve posted in Teams with helpful articles, offering to chat if people have questions.
But still, 95% of the company refuses to even address me by my pronouns, remotely try, or ask anything.
The agency itself is led by older conservative men, but I guess I expected at least some effort from younger employees.

No I don’t think so, I have stayed at places for <6 months and never had a hard time hopping. I’m sure hiring managers understand layoff situations and would never rule someone out because of it. (At least good ones wouldn’t!)
It shouldn't impact you negatively. Just be prepared to explain the circumstances behind your being let go. You should be fine.
I’m sorry to hear that. Unfortunately it’s not uncommon in our industry people will understand. Keep your chin up things will work out.
Hi. If you are interested in oncology. Message me. We are hiring and no layoffs are coming.
Nah, you'll be fine. If you had like 3 or 4 stints like that in a row, then yeah, people might read into that as being more than just bad luck. But it happens. If anything, it reflects worse on the company than it does on you.
Primarily depends on your portfolio and pedigree. Secondarily your personality when you interview.
Not at all. I was just in the same situation.
