Ok enough berating him. He gets it. Sorry OP that this is happening. Move music, pictures, 401k, pension, contact list, etc. Also start building your resume while you still have access to all your files.

Above all, mentally prepare for a few months of job hunt. Give yourself a strict schedule to go by each day if you do get laid off. Focus on getting a new job. Update that resume, start looking at openings. If you can jump on this, you will feel better and transition better.

Im sorry to hear that, is it KPMG US?

It’s not KPMG. I used to work there a while ago.

KPMG US?

Sorry to hear bud. Start looking now. Maybe look at contract work through a firm like RH to keep revenue and skill sets growing. You will get through this.

Thanks everyone for the support. I have a mortgage of 2k and about 750 of other expenses every month. I’m afraid if I can’t find a job quick enough of how reserves will run out. What do you think is a safe number to have saved?

12 to 20k

Hey Guys. Regarding the forced layoffs in PS. It’s high time we unite and hit them back. I’ll request all people who’ll receive the video connect email from PS to do one important thing. Use a a pen camera or a hidden camera(small) in your pocket before attending the call and record the call and events. These peoples should not be spared. Try to get some evidence and let’s expose to public media and other legal teams. You can do this anonymously thereby saving others from this crap.

I’ve been tracking the recent tech layoffs. It’s hard too see so many talented people be affected. Has anyone seen data around the type of roles being most affected? It looks like Marketing Ops roles have been largely spared from the layoffs. What is everyone else seeing and experiencing out there? Marketing Ops has always felt relatively safe because most teams run lean anyway, but we’re living in strange times.

I got laid off from my accounting/consulting firm in January and have since been taking a class related to my industry but from a tech angle. I prefer to leave consulting but could stay off the work and work life balance were better.

I signed up for this class thinking hiring woods be soft until midyear give or take just wish the class finished.

I look on this app and it seems everyone is hiring. Am I missing the boat by not being in a full throttle job search now?

My boss fired me because i ask for clarification on my employment right.

I got hired not long ago. I realise some of the employee benefits i was told (missing in the contract) contradict with what’s stated on the law. So i email the boss about it and ask for clarification. Immediately after the email i was fired.

Just want to make sure people know this and don’t apply jobs in this shady company- it is called UniQ Biotech, in Delta, BC, Canada

Seriously considering cutting off a friend. Told her I was concerned about catching covid since I live with my parents and my grandma is with us.
