During the panny, my agency moved a handful of us to a different office with no choice. Basically said we’d be fired if we didn’t comply. When we asked if we would ever have to move to the new city, we were given no answers for months. Now, they’re saying back to office in September and I have a feeling they’ll be expecting us to move. Should I ask for money to move? I personally can’t afford to and told them from the start I can’t move. Also, I really don’t want to leave my S/O. Help!
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
Earlier, someone posted about being desperate to find something new... I think we should have two posts - one for people employed but miserable, and one for people laid off and searching. Myself?
Going on 5 months since I was laid off and I’m slowing losing hope. I’ve exhausted all my contacts, my network, people not even in my network. I feel that I’m never not looking and I’m running out of options. I know I’m not alone by any stretch but somehow it doesn’t make it easier.
How do I have the conversation with a Partner about writing a letter of rec for a PhD program? Will I put myself a risk of being laid off if I express interest in continuing my education?
I'm at a small firm with 2 associates and 1 managing partner. The partner fired our 1 paralegal and now puts a lot of paralegal work on me. I'm the first female attorney this firm has had in over 30 years. I'm not allowed to bill for the paralegal work and already have to meet 40 billables/wk. The other associate is a man but has the exact same credentials/experience as me, but gets more cases/high stakes cases and is never asked to do paralegal work. Am I delusional to think my boss is sexist?
best advice for someone looking to transition from consulting into tech? Was laid off recently from consulting and have around 1 yr of experience, but haven’t seen many entry-level strategy roles in tech — do folks have any advice?
Before a layoffs what are some good suggestions to prepare and what services could my employer provide? Thank you.
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
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.
Honestly how hard is it to get fired in public accounting. I feel like i struggle sometimes and I can’t complete my tasks in a timely manner. Definitely can see my annoyances on my manager face.
Graduated from law school with an in-house offer. Was laid off before bar results. Took a paralegal job with promise of promotion once licensed. Never happened. Took another paralegal job (con’t)
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Recently laid off from Sr. Consultant role in energy in Houston. 4 years exp in supply chain/procurement and 2 in consulting (mainly tech PM work aka scrum). Have my MBA and PSM 1 cert. I know opportunities are far and few between right now, but looking for either energy or supply chain consulting role. Open to travel once resumed. If anyone is aware of a need, I'd appreciate the help!
Did PWC announce layoffs today? Or were they more targeted / based on performance and utilization? My partner just met with HR 😢
Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.
I used to pay $99 a year for Hootsuite all of the sudden they auto billed me $588 for the same pro plan. They sent me an email stating I was getting a lot of features they had upgraded through the years and had to raise the price. Has anyone else experienced this? Did you find another source to use instead of Hootsuite? Are they fair in pricing?
I am new to consulting. I was wondering. How do you approach a client/executive if you think they are going about a problem in the wrong way? They requested a data analytics project but I think they approach they are taking to get the answers is wrong. Right now, I am trying to communicate with different stakeholders to get a better solution. However, I am not sure how to pushback.

I’ve been trying to get some graphic design side projects to potentially pivot to self-employed designer. I think I have a competitive portfolio, but I’m having a hard time finding gigs. I tried Fiverr, but it is hard to compete with the prices they charge there. I know many people in the field, as I hang out mostly with designers and creatives, but not many people that could be a client. Any advice?

How valuable is having a B4 name on the resume? Currently at a boutique and have the option to join B4 (not KPMG) or industry. Industry would pay more for the first couple years. Wondering if B4 would be the better option for the long run

I’m a Media Analyst with 2.5 years agency experience. I make $45k a year which is already a bump from my starting salary at this new agency. I had to take an entry level position given the the job situation a year ago with COVID. I’m coming up on a promotion and will be requesting a raise. I know the value of my work is worth being compensated at least low $60s. Is a jump that high unreasonable to ask for? Average salary of a Media Analyst in my city is 66k. With a promo I’ll have a Senior title
