I’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
I have been on my SO’s case about drinking. He is unemployed and has been laid off. He has been having drinks 3x a week. One or two glasses a session. I drink 2-3x a month. I say it is too much. He’s Irish and I’ve lived in Ireland. People binge drink the entire weekend until they fall over. Someone who comes home from work drinks one dram of whiskey every night. This is normal. Americans define this as alcoholism.Do you think this is a cultural difference or actual excessive drinking?
Hi All. Recently got laid off here in Chicago. Trying to network with other people from other firms. I was wondering if any consultants in Chicago would like to meet up sometime? Thank You.
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
USA has been hit with the largest amount of layoffs in our industry, since I arrived here 10 years ago. What a f*** is going on? Is Trump the reason?

If my firm mandates the vaccine and I don’t provide proof, do they have to pay me severance when they fire me? FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m vaccinated, I just don’t want to work here anymore and I would like some extra $$$ 😂😂😂😂

Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
These are the threads we should frame and hang in all agency lobbies instead! "Just got laid off. Just found out I’m pregnant. Someone say it’s going to be okay, because that seem..." See full post https://joinfishbowl.com/post_2r395j

I got fired from Facebook in 2013 and then got a better job at Google (five years now). I want to go back to Facebook, but I'm not sure if they'd consider me again, or if it's even less likely.
How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
Are Deloitte layoffs over after tomorrow? S&O just let go 10-15% of the work force. More to come?
New Yorker moving to Chicago- been Delta platinum for years, should I go to American or United? (intl mileage is important)
I feel like I need a career coach because I am considering switching jobs but I don’t know where to go or where to start. I feel really overwhelmed and don’t know what I’m qualified for. And then always worried another job could be worse than the one I’m in now. Am I the only one like this? Where do you start? I can look at job postings and all but idk what I want to do long term. Especially with WFH I feel like there’s absolutely no networking or anyone to talk to outside of my team

Housing market is pretty good; I'd like to buy a place but wonder if it's ill advised since I haven't paid off all my student debt yet and there are rumblings about an impending recession
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..

Any useful advice on coping with feelings of failure? I have invested a lot of time in the past 5 years to specialise in my field (int'l arb), moved countries twice, invested more money than I currently have to requalify where I am now (UK), and still cannot get even a single interview for an associate position. I have been struggling financially for a while now (I am paid half of what a trainee earns in London), and have been feeling quite disappointed with myself. Should I give up? (Cont.)
