If you're talking about job abandonment and don't respond to HR, about a month. You'll burn any accrued PTO during that time and will likely be sued for the value of your company provided laptop if you don't return it.

Ive heard that its only after 1 yr that they'll start asking why you haven't been able to find a project. As long as your counselor isn't too involved, sure, you can be on the bench over a full year with few issues

Speaking from experience...had a consultant go AWOL last year that was on the team I was managing.

Why do I always see job postings for Pharma and Healthcare agencies? It’s like they can never fill their roles. 24/7 365. If I was in that part of advertising and enjoyed the work, I feel like my job security, promotions and money would be in a much better spot than where I am now, If anyone is looking for a job due to Covid layoffs, might not hurt to suck it up and do pharma work for a bit!

So this happened. Since getting laid off I’ve been applying to every job that I believe I’m qualified for. 30 minutes after I hit send I received an email from the company stating that I did not have the right qualifications for the job. No one from the company looked at my portfolio. How do I get past the algorithm and get my work noticed by a real person?
