Lol. Anyone else in danger of getting remixed? -- "Marrisa Mayer forbade her managers from uttering what she called “the L-word,” (layoffs) instructing them to use the term “remix” instead."http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/02/02/technology/yahoo-employee-ranking-system-lawsuit.html
On Monday, after just five months in my role, I was laid off from my job at a tech company in the food delivery space. During the call with my manager and HR rep, I understood that I would be paid through the 15th. If I sign the severance agreement, I’ll receive an additional two weeks of pay. I took notes and asked questions for clarity, but yesterday I received a payment for about half my paycheck (i.e. not through 15th!). Tips for negotiating the severance package? Any chance for more cash?
Is anyone hiring remote recruiters? Getting laid off so looking for another role asap! I have 3yrs of full cycle experience in agency and corporate, currently at IBM. Would love any leads!!

Recent graduate was laid off, have applied to dozens of jobs and still have been unable to land an offer. I interview well have a strong resume. Very concerned I might not get hired. Any advice, tips or general comments are welcomed.
Hi All, I fell victim to the recent tech layoffs in July when our startup had its funding pulled mid-series B. I was let go without severance and am starting to panic because sending out resumes in this job market feels like screaming into the void. Do any of you have any hiring leads for mid/senior level marketing communications positions? For reference, my last role was Director of Comms at a consumer health tech brand, 12 yoe total (+6 PR agency) tc $160k.
I did something with a new associate that works on my projects during our last work event. We live 5 mins away and took the same Uber. When it was time for me to leave the Uber, we hugged goodbye and idk what got into us, we both gave each other that look and next thing you know we are at my apartment. We were not drunk & it was an amazing night. He has been texting me since but I told him I needed a break from him.. I am worried now to death that I will be fired. Should I just quit??
Hello everyone! I’d love your thoughts…
I was laid off in May and been on the job hunt for 4 months. Finally received a offer. Then a week later another offer. I was working remotely for the past year & I’m struggling w/ the idea of being onsite. Neither job is on my desired career path, my goal is people operations/HR operations.
Offer 1: Payroll Admin, on-site. 72k, 216 hrs PTO
Offer 2: HR Payroll Admin, Remote. 62.5K + 6k sign on bonus, 70k after 6 months, 144 hrs PTO
Question for anyone who was laid off but found a new job:
If you request unemployment between the offer and starting, do you not receive the benefit? Worried about stating I've received an offer and that I'm no longer looking, though my new employer is the one having me wait a few weeks.
Should I continue in startup TA/Recruiting or go back to agency and build out my own business? What has more future stability given the recent news in tech layoffs?
Is it possible to not put a two-month job on my resume? (I worked at the firm for two months and then got fired along with some other people because of the boss) . Will background check discover this?
How many Deloitte Workday consultants got laid off? In the Consulting bowl there appear to be a few, which surprised me. Workday tends to be strong. I even see Deloitte is hiring right now.
Had some convos w/ frds who were laid off last week and seems like low util was the deadly sin.
Can ppl who got laid off kindly confirm the case so the rest of us know how to prep for the worst?
All my frds who were laid off had <30% util. Performance didn’t matter so much.
Offered role with client for same amount of money but one level higher. Trying to figure out if Worth taking it. It’s my dream role but the pay is the same ( consultant to manager role). Reasons to leave D, work life balance, layoffs scare me, current client has good culture/ work to life balance is 9-5. Is it common to get offers from clients? If so maybe I can wait and get better offer.
Ok so another FAANG has confirmed layoff this week. Amazon joining the layoffs group with 10k layoffs!!
Day #8: Why there are so many layoffs in tech? 🧐
We are in an uncertain period in the tech labor market, with big tech (Twitter, Meta, Amazon, etc…) companies laying off part of their workforce. Let’s understand what and why is happening.
What do recruiters think of people who’ve been previously laid off at an agency due to loss of clients? Since it’s a common thing in this industry, does it cast a bad light on the applicant?
Does anyone have any advice for corporate juniors who were unexpectedly laid off? I thought juniors would be the last to go because of our billing rates.
Parents who have or have had a baby. How was the first year or two for you? Was it awesome, was it terrible, did it change your relationship with your partner? Did you regret it, did you want out? I've heard that having a baby can really change things between you and your partner and that a lot of marriages fall apart at that point. Just interested in stories and feedback.
Also curious if one partner kind of pressured the other into having a child/was driving force in wanting the baby.
This job is mostly adding random numbers together in hopes they equal some other random number or zero #mastersinbullshitting
Okay so I’m frustrated and would appreciate any insight to the scenario below.
HR provides an initial offer.
I asked to elaborate on complete benefits package ie conferences, CEU reimbursement (no negotiation yet)
She needs to ask the CEO (not sure why she couldn’t ask the senior HR manager)
I state my salary expectations based on research, experience, education.
She has to talk to the CEO again to find out what is negotiable within the overall package
What’s going on? Ur job is to negotiate?

I am in a pretty much pigeonholed group for tax at B4. I was wondering for people who were/are in a similar situation how do you handle interviews for more general tax roles? Also any success stories are greatly appreciated as well! Need some motivation…
I have been interviewing a lot for the past 2 months and while the B4 experience gets me interviews, I’ve yet to receive an offer. It has been really hard for me, so any advice is appreciated.
