Have an average book at best. Somehow an okay agency hired and then fired me. I acquired lots of credit card debt in a short amount of time. Now I don’t feel I’ll get a chance again. I really don’t want to work menial job again but that seems it will soon be my only option.
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.
Got laid off due to Covid in July. I have been searching for a job for three weeks. Diligently looking and applying. I keep getting rejection letters and Linkedin resume views, but no offers. Not even a single interview. My resume looks great and experience is amazing. Anyone else in the same boat? Misery needs company 😝
I am curious to hear your honest thoughts. I don’t know what other firms have done but my firm has fired people, furloughed people, cut pay, delayed promotions and hire dates, etc. but also has allocated a chunk of change above what has been given in the past to support social justice causes. While I support the cause I wonder how associates feel about this when frankly some of it is at their expense?
Can someone explain the difference between being counseled out and being fired? With an emphasis on why counsel someone out but not fire them, and vice versa.
