I have a government job offer... I’d prefer not to take it because I like my current job in environmental work but worried about private sector layoffs.

Is it a pay cut? Do it if not

Not a pay cut, actually pays a little more

If good job and where you want to be, take it, otherwise not.

Something tells me environmental work will be hit extremely hard. People don’t care about the ocean when they are worried about their livelihood.
But if you take it you’ll be working for trump 😜

Better take it! If you end up not liking the position, you can easily move back to the private sector.

Take it. You’ll have enough free time to do the environmental stuff on the side and collect a mad pension that will never go away

Would the govt job be any safer than your current job? If same risk of getting laid off and you like the govt job better, all else being equal, then take the govt job

Hi All 🙂👋🏻
I joined IBM on 30 May 2022 but an still on bench.
I joined as a Microsoft Dynamics 365 F&O functional consultant and it seems like there are no F&O projects.

I got 2 calls for AX 2012(Older version of F&O) projects but having worked only in F&O, I do not want to switch to an older version of the ERP. And I had made this clear during my interview itself.

Is there any chance of getting fired? Its scaring me now to be honest.

Need your honest feedback everyone.

Layoffs beginning at my agency. I like to believe I’m safe, but I guess you never know. Just started 6 months ago. In need of some words to destress myself. Thanks fishies.

I'm an EA at a small global consulting firm (<25 people) with 5 years of experience supporting C-Suite execs. 3 months ago, the CEO put me in charge of our marketing efforts, and yesterday, he fired our recruiting coordinator and asked me to take over her job. I'm asking him for a raise on Thursday. I want to be a team player but am feeling like my job is a catch-all now. How would you define my role and how should I approach this conversation?

Have a big interview tomorrow. The question I dread the most is about why you’re looking for a new job. The honest answer is that there isn’t enough work to go around at my agency and I want to get ahead of the inevitable layoffs. What’s the best way to tell them this? Do I just make something else up entirely?

A recruiter for a company that I was excited to work for has ghosted on me (it’s been a week since they have given me updates). I’ve been told that things are delayed bc several key folks are on vacation atm.

How should I approach this situation? Several other companies I’m interviewing with is reaching final rounds, but tbh I’m not as interested in those roles. Plus I’m getting antsy being unemployed for several weeks since I was laid off.
