Intern hire set to start Oct (Healthcare/MC)... All the layoff posts have me a bit concerned, and has me considering other options. Am I overreacting?

To clarify: I was an intern last summer, and will be starting in October. Original start date was Aug but they pushed the start dates to either October or Feb. 2017.

Honestly, the fact that your start date was pushed and the current state of PwC should give you caution. My 2c are to start hustling to find a new job. Best cast you get another great gig and start your career in the next month or two. Worst case: PwC keeps pushing dates or cancels your offer. Need to cover yourself against the downside..

I'm finishing my UGrad by taking a summer course, which means I can potentially extend my graduation date (add a minor or take additional classes). This would allow me to go through another recruiting cycle... Thoughts?

Im a huge booster for Chiat LA, always have been, always will be. (I feel like how theyre valued is a metaphor for how creativity is valued in the industry.) Does anybody have any news, or goss, for how they’re weathering the virus times—layoffs or lack thereof? I feel like they were getting a pretty good head of steam going and then this crap.

Anyone here ex-EY have had issues in getting their severance? It’s taking more than a month or more after the separate date to get the final severance amount. Is there is reason for this much delay? Or is it normal?

Hello there, i’m wondering if anyone on this group has experience opening your own agency? I was laid off in April and had been freelancing ever since. I have been luck enough getting a few projects without really seeking people out while slowly interviewing. In the back of my mind I have always wanted my own agency. How do you get more clients and dealing with the sales/pitching process on your own? also as WOC i don’t feel like have the right network to tap into for higher earning projects

I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help. Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready. I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there." Do I walk now? Or hang in there?

A friend of mine from a top tier consulting firm was counseled out. Do you consider it ethical that his career counselor is intentially spreading the information to his colleagues and to other consultants from other companies in the project? What can he do about it? Specially that he considers the potential layoff is purely based on the current situation (chargeability was low) and not on his performance (they said that his contribution to BD during his bench time was low)?

Hi H1B fishes! For anyone laid off recently and looking for/found a new job, can you please help me understand: 1) Does the 60 day grace period count towards your remaining time on H1B? 2) What's the latest day by which a new company can file a transfer without it being a concern? Should filing be before day 60 or the receipt notice be dated before day 60? 3) Anyone successfully transition to a visitor visa in the interim? TIA!

Ethical or not: Company has given a heads up that I will be laid off in exactly 3 months. If I am employed on that day I will get 4 weeks severance + roughly half of my yearly bonus (cont.)

Question for anyone who was laid off but found a new job: If you request unemployment between the offer and starting, do you not receive the benefit? Worried about stating I've received an offer and that I'm no longer looking, though my new employer is the one having me wait a few weeks.

I have a colleague who always shows up on our morning meetings with wet hair from where it’s clear she just got out of the shower before the call. Our manager took her aside and apparently told her that it didn’t look professional on client video meetings. I wouldn’t have even known or thought about it but someone else in our team was talking about it. It seems like a nonevent but I am curious what everyone else is thinking about experiences and expectations for dress on client video calls?
