I was recently put on a 30day plan, busted my ass on it and was let go during covid. I’m beyond hurt and I feel very targeted and it never felt fair. What else could I do? I’m embarrassed and I recently came across one of the women who never liked me on social media and all the feels felt fresh again.

Accept that you were targeted. Accept at the workplace is not fair nor a meritocracy. Claim every dollar of unemployment benefits you’re entitled to, do your self care, then learn new skills Then get back to it and try again with the corporate world

That hurts. Just know it says more about the culture and the people than it says anything about you . You’re probably much better off in the long run and meant for better things!

I’m sorry you had to deal with this. I’m currently dealing with it myself. Except that my boss threatens me with a 30 day plan every once in a while. But I agree with our friend here. Claim that unemployment check and don’t let this experience bring you down. Take the good and the bad with a grain of salt and call it growing pain. And you know what they say kill em with kindness and you will persevere.

I have been looking for a job. But not very actively. The problem is that I love my job, and she dsnt do this all the time. It’s like once every 5/6 months. So I just let it roll off my back. She does this to pretty much every one on our team. I’m also a student, so it’s hard to get a job you actually want. So I feel limited

Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time.

I’m starting to feel the COVID cabin fever depression coming on again the way it did for me near the beginning. I want to sleep all the time, can’t focus on work, and am generally just exhausted. Not working out anymore either. I took PTO and it made me even more sad. Need some advice before my personal and work life fall apart.

I’m a 2nd year associate and I’ve been working at the same firm since I started. In a nutshell, I love the work (the practice area) but not the people very much (it’s just not a fit). I’ve been thinking of leaving for some time. I have an opening at another law firm, but my practice area would be different. Should I just wait for another opening in my area of preference? With Covid, openings are rare for entry level associates ...

Need advice: I work in a toxic tax dept in industry and I report to someone who fabricates my words and report back the VP if I ask any questions she does not want to hear. E.g: 1) I asked her what she envisions my career path to be and she reported the VP as “she has only been here for 6 months and already asking for a raise” 2) I asked whether the pay reduction due to Covid will be shortened or extended, she reported to the VP as asking “when will you pay me back”.

Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
