When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
Laid off 2 months ago - 111% utilization, glorifying appreciation from clients, great mid year reviews, recruiting & learning development internal initiatives. How do I stop feeling worthless?
When does the 60 day grace period start - after lay off announcement or after last severance paycheck? Thanks
Layoffs yesterday 😭 We had a brutal round of layoffs before break too and we all thought we were safe for a while. I still have my job but the survivor’s guilt is real.
hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?
How can I earn a bazillion babillion dollars so I can FIRE and not have to worry about working? Older friend got laid off. Contd...
First year associate here - really freaked out by FS layoffs and think I might be next. How am I supposed to find another job after 6 months?
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
I’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
FYI...My friend that works at RSM got laid off. Tax associate. In the beginning she said they weren’t going to do layoffs. Glad I don’t work there anymore. Anyone at RSM can confirm?
Those of you who have been fired in the past, what was the reason and was it a blessing I disguise?
Had a dream where I was in an alternate reality. Everyone hated me, I had been fired from Deloitte for incompetence, and I was somehow part-owner of an Arena Football team. What the hell does that mean
A little over a year ago, I posted about my boss making constant comments about my salary. Most comments said I must not have been performing well. I want to update that he was fired, not me.

Can someone provide feedback on this offer? Analyst role, fed govt contract analyst. Currently <2yoe in audit. Role is max 40 hours a week. Pay will be 80-90k. I like the hours and deviation from accounting, worried about what a government role might do to my career projections. Thanks!
I know this probably not the best bowl but I’m curious to hear about potential gift ideas for my wife’s upcoming birthday? She’s currently 7 months pregnant and since we’re all still WFH it is what’s making this more challenging given the usual choices of excursions / shoes / clothes etc not really good options.
Currently a senior audit associate at a Big Four. 4 YOE primarily in the Federal Government (DoD) and business process improvement. What are my chances of even being selected for an interview at a MBB in the Washington DC area? Mainly looking at McKinsey.
What do you do when you are unassigned for a week. I love 45 min away from the office (without traffic)? Can I just work from home?

When did you know that you want to have a kid(s) and what helped you decide to go for it? Not a mom but want to ask people With first hand experience. My BF is sure he wants them and I did too until I did the research on cost of childcare, lifestyle changes, and most importatntly the impact on career (my BF says family stays with you but works don't. I love work for the sense of achievement). Now I am leaning toward childfree. I would really appreciate your thoughts and advice!

Is there a path from FDD that leads to a realistic WLB? I want to start a family someday, but just don’t see how it’s possible to be a good spouse or parent with the time demands of this career. 3yrs of work experience if that matters.
