I was laid off yesterday due to change in my departments objectives, does anyone know of any Medicare Advantage opportunities in the Payer Space that align with IT and Operations?

Folks, any advice on applying for jobs at a previous client? As a firm we have great relationships with the senior client leadership and I am afraid that the GEP and my RL will eventually find out when I submit my job application. On the other hand, if I tell my RL prior to applying, I will probably end up towards the top of “people to be laid off” list.

Deloitte partners circa whenever they realized they could let everyone leave on their own before the recession, instead of having to pay severance for 300k people.

I have been laid off going on 3 months now and I’ve never felt so discouraged in my life. This job hunt for me has been frustrating and draining. It really has taken a toll on my mental health and maybe even confidence. I feel like I’m losing momentum. Any advice on staying positive throughout this journey? It’s so hard to stay upbeat and motivated at times.


Question for those that are familiar with how severance pay works. I received a package a while back and was paid bi-weekly severance. The payments ended a few months ago but just the other day I had a severance deposit. Curious if it’s possible to get additional payment at this point or does this look like a mistake? I know the logical answer might be to just call but I’ll be honest in that I am still looking for a job and this would definitely help me. Thanks for your advice!


What is the EY severance package ?


I need some support and smiles...I’m being laid off for May. I know everyone’s going through this, it’s just I was in this same position last just feels like I can’t catch a break. 😔


Hello everyone! I got laid off from a tech startup as a product specialist and I’m currently looking for open product specialist opportunities or advanced roles in the product management space. I have 4 YOE and advanced skills in analytics tools and agile project management tools and processes. I’m open to more challenges and hoping to add more value. Currently living in the GTA and open to hybrid/WFH opportunities in Ontario.
Thanks in advance.


So I just got fired…. And was told I’d get two months severance… I’m in utter shock since I just got back from the hospital. I was told I needed to improve my performance in January and all the check ins I’ve had I was told I’m doing much better and was put on multiple long term projects and then this happened. I’m in shock and idk if 2 months severance is good bad?!? Idk thoughts?


Has anyone heard of Big 4 TAS layoffs?

I have not been on a project for over 3 months. Since I joined, I have been put in training. The training got extended by a month and now it's close to 4 months since I joined and without a project.

What should I do? People say that I'm lucky to get paid without doing any work, but it is stressing me out. I need the experience. The uncertainty is freaking me out, with rumours of layoffs and the certification program and all.

How do I get into a project? How long do I have to wait more?

Are we looking at any future layoffs in Deloitte with so many people in Bench?


No one in the creative department should be laid off until the Global Chief Creative Officer position is eliminated. It has no purpose today. Nobody is flying to different offices and award shows.

Circumcision - this is a topic where I’m really stumped. I know it’s a highly personal choice, so I can tell you a bit about me and my husband:

- not religious
- liberal Democrats in a coastal state
- my family is conservative and all-American
- husband’s family is from the Midwest so pretty similar but the only cousin my son will have is uncircumcised (his mom is a lesbian and they live in the woods in Vermont).

I want to be progressive on this topic… (cont)

A gentle note: Many people posting here are not recruiters nor career counselors. I am happy to provide a referral to a role that you may be interested in, but I don't have the expertise (nor the time tbh) to sort through all of my company's listings to find the right one(s) for you. If I post a link to my company's career page, you should do your own legwork and search for the roles you want and then ask me to refer you to those roles.
