I am observing that in layoffs.. The percentage of non tech guys affected are more than tech.
December layoffs anywhere?
I’ve been laid off for around 4 months now. Multiple interviews. Multiple rejections. Tons of applications/ resumes submitted. Crickets. Anyway to find out if you’re being blacklisted?
I'm pretty good at my job. I have to say that because what I'm asking could be skewed if I wasn't, but logically I know I am. Does anyone else have an intense fear of getting fired? I started my career at a toxic agency, and in my personal life I've watched so many of my friends struggle for months (sometimes years) to find a job. How do I handle this fear of being fired for some reason or another? Because that anxiety is not just affecting my overall work quality but also my life in general.
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!
Just got laid off. They just cited shortage of work. First time something like this has happened and I am feeling low and lost. What should I do? I not even sure what to ask HR for? Please help I could really use some guidance.

I was informed today that my employment would be terminated at a tier-2 consulting firm in Toronto. The reasons for my dismissal are unclear and I would like to get legal advice on the termination agreement and severance package that was offered. Has anyone experienced a similar situation and can refer a good employment lawyer?
How much is severance usually?
Serious question - the president of our office magically disappeared last week. No two weeks notice, no eloquent goodbye emails, not even an official announcement. That means she was fired but they can’t say, right? Honestly asking because it all seems so mysterious.

Hi guys, I got fired after H1B is approved but before it’s activated on Oct 1st. Is there any way I can transfer my H1B to my new employer? The H1B was filed via consular notification. I got fired in August, so don’t have any pay stubs for September. Btw currently I’m on STEM OPT.
Is this normal? Have only 2 interviews for my on-site and then would have another “informal chat” with VP if I pass on-site before sending to HC, haven’t read of anyone else with this experience

I’ve heard of some account service individuals who jumped from Account Executive/Account Manager to Account Supervisor (vs AE -> SAE -> AS). From research, it’s seems like an SAE requires 3-4 YOE and an AS required 4-6 YOE. However, for those who have experienced this jump in their own career, do you feel the account sup role you landed to be more “junior level” than a “normal” AS role normally is? Did your team feel adequately supported, or should they have hired a more experience AS?
Say you are going for a new job, and they ask you how much you’re looking for, what percentage higher salary than you would actually hope for do you ask for to leave some negotiating room?

Tech people like us get paid a little extra than non tech people.
Because when we write code, even after we resign and leave the company. That code still makes money to the company. So we are assets to most software companies. And also tech people need to constantly learn new things every 6months , it's stressful and challenging.
And it's not easy to hire new people to company because their salary expectations are high. And it's easier to retain employees with less money.
Non techs are mostly not billable.
Because it's hard to replace tech people and hiring costs more than retaining. I'm not saying tech guys are immune to firing but in mass layoffs, they would be lower on the list for any tech company.
@BA1 can you elaborate
Obviously !! Business can’t run without engineers/techies at any cost, whereas if HR’s aren’t there for a while, business doesn’t lose much consider hiring is on freeze. Same applies for OP’s etc
simple.. one is an asset and another is a liability..
