The apple update is such a public screwup. Somewhere a junior developer just got fired for it
Any advice for how to not feel guilty about giving notice for a much higher level job that came up out of the blue when you just survived a third round of layoffs and your team, who you care about, is beyond busy?
How do you explain that you’re available immediately without revealing you were laid off from your previous job?
I was placed on PIP due to unavailable projects... and right before my pip period was about the end, I got placed on a project. is it weird I was hoping to get fired and get my severance package?
Been furloughed for a month. Sucks, but silver-lining is that I'm building a game with my girlfriend. If you're furloughed / laid off, what're you doing w your newfound free time?
Counselee is 90+ days behind on Corp AmEx and its suspended until paid in full. Charges include personal. Will she be fired?
Aight fam. Spent last year on the PIP, almost got fired mid year, but worked on firm initiatives like a machine through the year, and killed it on client projects. Finally out of the PIP. Fuck yeah!!!
Hey guys, since this is the first time this happens to me I need some advice. I'll most likely get laid off soon as the agency currently lost a few clients and already let go plenty of people (CONT)
PWC / Strategy& fish - saw a post mentioning layoffs that included recent hires. Is it true? Which verticals are most affected? Starting at S& in a few months...
Laid off last Nov. Have built up a steady freelance stream since and it’s working. Shit, it’s lucrative. But I miss being in the game. Can I get back in? Should I? Opportunities at my level seem few and far between. Plus, I’m in Canada. Was in the US. Should I go back? Can I? This is messy, I’m sorry. Few beers in. But hey let’s chat!
10/2020: I got laid off due to COVID. 10/2020 to 05/2021: I put over a hundred job apps for industry roles. I got multiple interviews and many unsuccessful final rounds. 06/2021:I am happy to share that I’ve received an offer for a 6 figures role in IA which is a 66% bump from my previous role!If you got laid off or not and you’re still looking for a better opportunity, don’t give up because believing is achieving!
Other than having a gap on your resume, why is it bad to leave a job without another one lined up? Will hiring companies assume you got fired?
Fish fam, need help! I work for a boutique consulting firm which isn’t doing well & we’re having layoffs soon. I knew we weren’t doing great, but this came suddenly. I’m shocked but need to act quick: 1) What do I need to ask the HR and negotiate for in my 1 on 1? 2) Who’s hiring H1B holders right now (strategy and ops consulting experience)? Would appreciate referrals! 3) How can I maintain access to fishbowl (it’s currently tied to work email)? Thank you so much!!
Do freelancers do better in recessions? (Possibly as backfill for all the layoffs.) Anyone still here who survived the last one around ‘08?
Writers, do you have your work on a password-protected site or just use a PDF? Someone at my agency just got fired because he had client work posted on his site for anyone to see (cont.)
For ADD/ADHD moms: I was diagnosed in highschool (~20 years ago) and prescribed adderall. I have never abused it, and it helped tremendously in allowing me to function (especially to combat narcolepsy). I transitioned to Wellbutrin when pregnant, and continuing through BF bc I had a high risk preemie. Mat leave ended, and now I can barely function at work... it takes me hours or days to accomplish what I normally could in ten minutes. I’m worried about being laid off, but I don’t know what to do
Hi All, I am a BPO professional working as a mid level supervisor in a domestic business. I have recently being laid off as the project we worked for moved away. Currently I am searching a lateral position but unable to find one in spite of several interview attempts. I would really appreciate if you all share some advise if I should start over as a entry level or wait indefinitely for further opportunities. I am only income generator of the family and cant afford staying jobless for months
Chris Krebs was fired at DHS today... very bad move and it’s gonna take a while for his replacement to gain the same trust and confidence within the cybersecurity community. January 20th can’t come soon enough.
Anyone interviewed at Facebook for any Analytics role or position? Any insight on technical/analytical interviews or in general any advice on how to prep for the interviews? Any help is welcomed
Was looking to head west back in March (before the internships disappeared). Now my gf and I want to start the new year in a new city. Any places hiring junior writers and/or art directors (she’s an AD)?
Met with a CCO for a role on a notoriously “challenging” account. Thirty minute Zoom, nothing in-depth. A few days later the recruiter emails like “Great news. We’ve talked to many people but they’d like to make an offer to you!” I’m thinking to myself, it was a 30 minute call, I’ve never met my direct manager, potential partner(s), etc...So these guys are just desperate to fill this role, right?
Does anyone know anything about CompassX? I was reached out by them, and curious to learn about their culture their strengths, and what they do.
Middle school teachers, what are the “must-have” books in your classroom libraries? I am a special ed resource reading teacher looking for some books that will make my kids WANT to read more!
May lose my grand dad to covid today. My mom is staying alone and all my aunts (Her sisters) are in the US. Everyone is suggesting that we bring her over so that she is not facing it alone. She has a US Visa until 2028. Does anyone know if the flights are getting disrupted? Is it possible to get her over asap?
Is there a study that proves the effectiveness of humor in advertising? Know it's a general ask, but need some client firepower.
My mom died 6 years ago. For some reason this is the hardest Mother’s Day. Previous years didn’t really affect me as much.
I never get upgraded on New York-San Fran flights. Flying United. Have you had any luck with Delta or American?
Does PwC travel policy allow flex travel for part weekend? Can I go back to home city for Friday, spend Sat-Sun in another city and fly back to Client Monday? Flight cost will remain same.
Recently I got lazy, feel really tired by mid day and would just not do anything productive unless clients walk in. What keeps you motivated to just work hard and energized?
Recently got my CFP and wanted to push more in the planning direction. Kind of young for seminars so I thought maybe do more door knocking. What do you think about no soliciting signs though?
Is Hill holiday NY all healthcare clients?
Back when we were travelling, how did team dinners work given the strict per diem? Does Accenture Strategy just never get to indulge in nice meals / drinks? Was one of the best perks of the job ☹️
Has anyone in the WPP network been promised a promotion/raise and then suffered through the annual Q4 “cash push” freeze? Did you finally get it in Q1? If so, when? Was it worth the wait?
Anyone heard of YipitData? Thinking of applying there. Curious about their product, culture, and comp. Glassdoor seems suspicious
