? What a weird post. I don’t think working in tax is anything like mopping. And I don’t know why you think tax is the only profession where it’s easy to get a job.

Obviously it’s human to be jealous, but thinking about your friends being fired to be happier seems like going too far/toxic Maybe reframe as a positive - i.e. I have great job security/transferable skills

I feel that because we are so specialized in tax, it’s hard to pivot to another sector.😭😭

I think I def look around at most my friends and I’m slightly jealous. Some of them i swear barely work and make $$$ bank lol I recognize that some of them don’t have the most transferable skills Soo in the event they were let go, it would be not ideal. I am fortunate that’s not the case with me. I hate when people say don’t compare yourself to others . Well they are right there so it’s hard not to haha . I recognize if I really wanted to change careers that’s I’m in the driver seat here

I think you just have a bad job and it has nothing to do with tax or not. I make $140 in LCOL and my overall hours (averaged with the highs and lows) is ~25-30/week. You might need to call up a recruiter.

That’s a weak set of transferable skills

ACN 🐠- any pregnant people worried about these layoffs? I know everyone says they won’t touch pregnant people but the layoffs seem so indiscriminate (good chargeability and good performance) and legally as long as it’s not because of your pregnancy they can still fire you right? Feel free to talk me down and tell me I’m wrong! Just curious where others are at.

First year here (midsize) this busy season I made a ton of mistakes so far.
