I just read a post from my previous agency on LinkedIn. They were bragging about how they were ranked as one of the companies with highest-growing revenues in my state for 2022.

Their revenue grew so much in 2022, they had to lay off multiple people, including me? BS 🙄

That's how their revenue grew I guess - less debt, more money for making more money. Sad but true.


What I am saying is that hundreds of thousands less going to employees, can go to marketing and sales etc., which drive revenue.


They aren't mutually exclusive :/ It sucks, it really does. but it's far more common than it sounds on paper.

Recently accepted a temp role as an HR admin for a former employer. Previously interned there & left because my supervisor did not have any growth opportunities planned out for me; this was in spite of my stellar performance, as reflected in my 90 day review. She has since left the company, but there’s crazy turnover in the company & in the HR department in particular. Just that an HR coordinator resigned. Is it worth going back into a dumpster fire w/ no leadership to gain experience?


Has anyone broken down in front of their managers? I’m a senior and have broken down in front of my managers due to some personal circumstances that were happening during busy season, and I’m afraid it will impact performance. Especially since 75% or my engagement workload is with them and it’s been awkward interacting ever since and now my anxiety is telling me I’m going to get canned because I wasn’t mentally strong enough. My coach has also been aware of said events and has had conversations

Anyone really struggle with lectures? I find it challenging to do online trainings when I have to listen to an hour of a recording of someone talking over a PPT.

If anyone has strategies to make things like this more bearable I’m all ears! 🙏🏼
