I was hired 3 weeks ago at State Farm as a UX/UI designer for their mobile app. Only to be terminated suddenly, the reason given was ‘isn’t producing enough work’. I was assigned my first project the same day I was terminated. Now nobody will return my calls. I’ve never had this happen before. Has anyone else?

I just want to say while this advice is good in theory 90% of the time the person can not afford the expenditure of what comes with it. Also most employee agreements today are at-will so companies can release for any reason or no reason at all and at any time.

Were you hired as a contractor? Or full-time?

Like others said, either you were set up to fail because of poor leadership or they needed someone else. To be honest? Look at it as a blessing. I’ve never had your exact experience but I’ve had plenty of other horror stories of ending up working months within a company that was unstructured and absolute chaotic to the point my mental health sacrificed.

With the amount of opportunity out there for product designers like us, you’ll be picked up in no time!

Hi folks,

I had joined my new company as an Application Developer.

Have had a lack of interest now for a couple months. Just generally not interested in anything going on at work. Part of it is some new initiatives and new leadership - and I am just not drinking the kool aid. It is hard only having one client sometimes. There’s no escape. Does anyone else who came from a busy private practice with dozens of clients ever feel burnt out from dealing with the same people day in and day out? The same people are always making trouble. It’s just getting old.

My sister always complains about wanting to lose weight (I weigh ~30 pounds less than her) but when I offer her solutions she turns them down. I tend to eat vegetable-focused and high protein meals when I cook and avoid processed carbs (except when I go out of course). She says my diet is too restrictive when I tell her I can give her recipes and make a grocery list for her. Her problem is she wants to be able to eat rice and pasta for every meal and thinks she doesn’t need to reduce that. WWYD

Respectfully, if you don't know the difference between a recast and a refi please don't respond 😅
