Industry vets - in your experience how recession proof is insurance? I was not yet in the job market last recession but I watched my mom get laid off and struggle to find employment during that time for the next 1.5 years. I was wanting to hit the job market towards the end of this year, but now I worry that if I do move companies, the recession could put me in position of last one hired first one fired. Is it better to stay put?
Do we think we are clear with the layoffs?

Hey everyone. Today I found out I have been laid off unexpectedly. If anyone has any open opportunities I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

Have you been fired before even starting your new job?
I signed for a new job two months ago and will start next month (3 mo notice period in Europe). They were very keen on getting me on-board ASAP before signing but since I signed the contract it has been silent from the new employee. I've emailed them with questions as I'll be re-locating to a new country and it takes them 1-2 weeks to reply. Given all that's going on in the world, I'm worried they might fire me before I even start.
Just heard that more layoffs at EY are coming, good luck to those of you who are still left. Hope you make the cut!
Too many layoffs happening right now. Sales and marketing teams are taking the hit. Robin Arzon reminded me today - ‘What happens when life hits? We learn to hit back.’ 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽
For those who were affected by Agency layoffs, how long did it take for you to get back on your feet and find a new position?

So my baby is 2 months old and will not nap anywhere but my arms. Will wake up the moment I leave him on the bassinet. At night he’s a great sleeper (sleeps from 8 pm to 7 am) with one feed, but the mornings he just won’t. Off late, I am trying to put him in the bassinet after I rock him to a slightly drowsy state, but his moro reflex wakes him up (I don’t swaddle him in the mornings only put him in a sleeveless sleep sack), where he lasts for about 25-30 mins (just started yday). I give him a

Might be a loaded question but How is the career culture like for a tech sales career? I understand that it would vary based on industries. I don’t mind the stressful nature of hitting quotas and actually would thrive with the stress. I see more senior managers having to go out a lot, party a lot with their clients to seal the deals and that concerns me a little. Would love to get your thoughts! Also I’m 25 now and was wondering if it’s too late to start a new career in tech sales….
