Most layoffs/furloughs are performance based. In unique departments that essential and performance is pretty level then seniority into the company or department is applied.

I have a sister in the UK who has been a stay at home mum for 8 years. Prior to that she had two degrees and had worked in IT. She has been taking trainings in cloud security &wants to get back to the work force.But COVID-19 and the bias against people with long gaps in their CV has made it nearly impossible to get a job. She’s the kind of person that goes all out when she commits to something. At this point, her goal is to rebuild her career again. If you know of a job opportunity please dm me.

I’m feeling very sad. I just learned that the partner in my previous firm got fired. I considered him my mentor. He took me under his wing. He was my Don Draper and I was his Peggy Olson. I’m really bummed about this, heartbroken and worried. Nobody knows why. The ex-colleague said everything was normal, they sent him emails but bounced back. Nobody saw it coming. 😢

Is it tone deaf to push for a raise / promotion at mid-year when the firm has been struggling financially, but avoiding layoffs / pay cuts?

I feel bad admitting this because of the state of the world, but I had a great summer. After years of working in toxic environments with terrible people, getting laid off and having time to myself again was amazing. I finished personal projects. I got sleep. I read doorstop books that needed more attention than subway reading. And now freelance work is picking up (and I don’t hate it.) I even got Covid but only had mild symptoms. Banner summer for sure.

I'm really good at my job, a high performer and have visibility with partners. However, I hate it. I wake up in the mornings feeling angry and resentful. I'm not able to exercise creativity as I'd like to, and feel I'd be happier in a completely different field. I'm scared to leave behind the reputation I've built. Big 4, it's safe/comfortable/addictive and Im addicted to being on cruise control. Anyone else been through the same?
