Hi Fishes ,
Looking back, what do you wish you had known or done as a junior? Got laid off and looking for advice to continue learning about advertising and keep my copywriting skills sharp.
- culture deck is something else: if they think they can do better than you, they will just let you go
- they think they’re the Yankees: if you’re batting.385, but they think there is someone out there who can bat .400, you’re going to get fired
- they will openly discuss at a meeting why you suck
- Reed Hastings' leadership style was once described as being "unencumbered by emotion". A VP once told him he's not a good listener and tends to be unempathetic.

Telling college friends graduating that unless you want to get fired after your first year..avoid PwC.
Hi All! I need some help. I got recently laid off and I am going to start interviewing for roles soon. Should I tell recruiter that I’m not in the company anymore? If so, what should I say? (I got fired due to my performance, but my manager set me up for failure from the beginning, aka toxic leader).
Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?
Any minority lawyers in here that were blacklisted from big firms for a time gap or after layoff? How did you move forward?
Hello everyone. I have 9 years of experience in iOS development. I have worked in swift, react native, reactjs, blockchain. Was working a product lead. Got laid off last week. Looking for an opportunity.
Thanks in advance!
Half my team got laid off and while I’m grateful to have my job still, I feel like I’m drowning in the additional work. All of their responsibilities have been assigned to me, the most junior person on the team.
When I brought up that this was a bit much for one person/didn’t think this was sustainable (hinting at the fact that some of the other existing team members should pick some of the laid off peoples’ work), team lead went off on what I’m sure he thought was an inspiring speech about...
If you've been laid off, how upfront are you about it in interviews? Better to let them know right away or further into the process?
Hey everyone, I was recently laid off from Meta. I am a senior technical recruiter, who also served 20 years in the military. I am looking for new positions working in San Diego or remotely. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you so much.
So my utilization is currently low and EY announced they would be doing layoffs starting July 1. I've decided to apply to other places. I am currently in the process of getting my clearance (tbc)
Hi. I got laid off today. HR said they would provide me with clean letters. Is it fine to show this 3 months experience outside or should I avoid giving a medical reason or something?. The problem is EPAM gave me 150% hike. If I don’t show this experience, I will have to negotiate with companies from scratch. Suggestions will be very helpful.
How to handle layoffs?
My now former employee suddenly laid off over 40 US staff remembers yesterday. The way it all happened was very out of the blue and somewhat backhanded. The new head of the marketing department spent weeks reassuring people their positions were safe and then went on to only retain the staff that she hired. She also made a point to get access to the former staff’s resources for their programs. Anyway, any advice about how to navigate the job search these days?
Will a unionized advertising industry discourage toxic cultures? I always thought unions made it harder for the “bad apples” to get fired due to union protection.
My dog gets pink eye regularly and getting appointments on short notice is so hard. Any suggestions to get quick perceptions for my dog for pink eye? I like in VA

At what point do you elevate your peer’s mistakes to managers? It feels like my teammates elevate each other frequently but I don’t like to get involved because it seems like tattling. Do managers value knowing who on their team is messing up in small ways?
Okay moms, when are you visiting the grandparents again? We don't live in NYC so my parents think it's safe to visit my 3 year old, but I know they'll be hugging and picking her up if they see her.
Closing on a property in late December and will be immediately going through a renovation. Is there anyway that I can capitalize on Black Friday deals (vanities, mirrors, appliances, etc.) and have those items basically On Hold until I’m ready for them to be delivered?

Hey all. Moving to NYC this summer for work. Office will be in midtown East but do not need to be in everyday. My partner and I are in our 30s. We’re trying to decide between UES or Sunnyside. Would we be missing out on the NY experience by living in queens?
We don’t want to be right in all the action and some green space nearby would be nice. For the apt would just like laundry at least in the building lol

Hey you 👉 reading this post. It’s that time again. If you’re sitting down, please take 5 minutes to stand up, stretch it out, and get the blood flowing. If you still have to sit, check your posture and shake those shoulders out.
Anyone here share references for good small biz accountants? Would be good if they have experience with Franchise businesses and are in the NJ/NY/CT area - thanks!
Roasted Okra Poppers - This is an accidental recipe I came up with today. I wanted a savory snack but didn’t have chips or popcorn in the house. There was frozen okra in the fridge which my husband had mistaken for green beans. Okra is not my favorite vegetable because of its slimy texture but roasted it has a crispy texture and caramelized nutty flavor. Recipe success!
