Hi Fishes ,
Has anybody felt age discrimination before? Whether old or young? Personally I feel like I’m often referred to as the token millennial and ideas are written off without the experience to match, but it’s w/e and I let it roll off my shoulder. Curious if older workers are feeling it and are concerned about potential layoffs.
Hi Doordash 🐠, has there been discussions of layoffs? Is DD planning on doing any? Thanks, from a potential hire
I’ve been trying to land a new job for a few months because my current one is toxic and job security is super low (2 RIFs already this year), but feel completely deflated knowing there are thousands of talented people joining the job hunt now. I know I should be grateful I have a job for now, but if I get laid off I’m totally worried about finding a gig – it’s been hard. I’m not going to get 3-4 months of severance and I have a family and mortgage too!
I was recently laid off and am entertaining a couple of contract positions. Are contract positions protected by FMLA if I were to get pregnant? I assume not..? I’m feeling very frustrated at this whole process. My partner and I want to start our family in the next 2 years or so which makes this job search process even harder because I want my job to be protected. I also want to be paid for my leave.. but that’s a whole other thing
For all fired this year, do you put on your background check (for a job offer) that you were discharged? Heard EY doesnt share if you were fired or resigned, so am wondering what others are putting...
Hello all, It is quiet here.. how's everyone doing?
I hear layoff's and even our org did some realignment and let go of some people. Any stories to share here?
I’m at an agency that just went through several rounds of layoffs. It often seems like staff have no recourse when the layoffs hit. How could a staff union assist in that situation?
Started seeing some ✌🏻️ emails anyone know if promotion/VC calls happened this week. Seems it would line up. No layoffs just leaving for another job.
I fired my largest client today. 🙀
Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results.
Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air.
We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.
I was fired on Friday for performance issues. I am determined to improve in the future and am taking steps to do so. Any tips for finding a new job? The depression and hopelessness is hitting hard.
Took a job about three months ago. It is obviously a sinking ship. People are being laid off left and right. Everyone else is quitting. I have two opportunities to get out. Should I take one?
A friend on H1B got laid off and only has a couple more weeks before he has to leave the country. He has 5+ years left on his visa. Can he go back to India and still look for jobs from there? Does the visa become invalid the moment he leaves or does the clock stop and he can use it with another employer later?
Laid off with most of my team. Really frustrated with corporate leadership in general, watching them protect overhead over employees.
If I had access to capital and RFPs, I’d build a collective of teams to respond to briefs, pay everyone a flat fee for participation, have everyone pitch in competition, and winners oversee execution. Just get rid of all the overhead, bonafide meritocracy. Anyone work at V&S or other crowdsourced agency experiments? Why did they fail?
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?

After 4 years of teaching, I have decided that a requirement for any school I work in is that they don’t use the garbage known as the Danielson rubric. The fact that they grade you out of 4 and the requirements for a 4 are ridiculous, means that any tiny mistake can stop you from getting a 4 and effect your rating immensely. Because of that stupid rubric I only scored 2s and 3s and instead of helping me grow, it just made me feel like i couldn’t teach.
When seeking roles consulting companies, it’s important to understand that these companies have different career paths. & that Black talent tends to be funneled to certain career paths -which more often than not = less prestigious $/or financially rewarding as their “traditional” career paths. Example:Deloitte USDC. It’s also noteworthy that some companies will push Black talent into certain verticals. Do due diligence when seeking roles. If you have company specific info on this, pls share
