I'm an optimistic person, but it is so hard when everyone around me is so negative. What's the worst that happens, you get fired and you go work somewhere else.

Hi there! Ive been in Hr for 4+ years as a generalist and people partner in the non profit sector. I gained a lot of experience during that time in all areas of HR. I was laid off in May and have not had much luck finding a new job. I’m extremely passionate about the employee experience. I’m hoping to transition into tech. Would anyone that is in the tech industry have time to chat about transitioning into tech, tips, etc? I’d really appreciate any insight and advice!

What advise do you have moving forward with a career. I left my employer after18 yrs in June. my boss was laid off before covid, they didnt post his job for 2 years. I ran the site for that time, received many accolades. When it posted i got no interview. In June a company made an offer for same money for board director I took it. Turns out they were pitching lies. They had no integrity and were incompetent. I left this month. I haven’t been out of a job 25 years. How do I pick myself back up?

All this talk about layoffs, meanwhile KPMG Strategy just keeps hiring great people! #CrushinTheGame #KMBB

I was in the final round of interview with Amazon right before the layoff news came out. A week later, I got an “incline” offer for the position that I’m applying to. Can anyone share their experience and tell me what that “incline” means? Retail Operations getting hit. I wonder if this opening will still be available. If so, I got an offer later. Will this be a hire to fire case?

I had an interview today for an assistant controller job and it’s working in an industry I’ve worked in a little but not much. They’re fine with that but I’m worrying that I oversold myself. They want me to be able to manage month end by myself and show progression within 90 days. I’m naturally sales minded so I’m sitting here wondering if I’d be setting myself up for failure and get fired. Thoughts?
