Hi Fishbowlers, I just got let go with a 3 week severance. I had some personal issues going on at home and my performance slipped. I would appreciate any advice on how to transition to a next role!
I’m dealing with taking care of a 70+ family member that just moved in and is dependent on me. Worried enough about COVID infection. I think my partner may be laid off this week. How to deal??
Double dipping on severance and paycheck from new job. Can former companies even find out that you have a new job if you keep quiet?
With everything going on and a recent layoff, I’ve really been reevaluating my life. Is it dumb to leave all $ and perks behind for more fulfillment and passion. I’m looking for a new job but... cont.
Work from home week.... you came just in time, another week on the road and was about to lose it 😊
Do we ever go back into the office? Not sure if I love or hate WFH life but I can’t imagine commuting again.
Hoping for insight: I left a job two months ago. There was this guy I was really into but I wouldn’t say he reciprocated but am positive he knew how I felt. My last day he sent an email (since most were wfh) and was like “good luck, stay In touch, don’t be a stranger”. A few weeks later, I sent an email related to our industry. We had a little back and forth ... cont
My SIL’s insta-perfect style driving me extra crazy today: “I always make sure to carve out me-time at lunch, and now everyone WFH can too! I suggest using a long lunch to prep dinner ingredients”
I am currently working at a Cannibas spac with some offices on Long Island. Within the next several months we are going to be looking for FP&A, SEC reporting, SOX/Internal audit folks to help pull together our acquisitions. Looking for various levels, and people who will be passionate about really building a business, and act like a start up. For now I am only open to Long Island, but may consider more remote people.
Just went on the prometric page noticed they had a section for remote testing. Thoughts? https://www.prometric.com/ProProctor
Anyone have tools they’ve given their parents to help them learn / be more comfortable with technology as they WFH? My dad has been struggling having to rely more on computers / technology since he has started WFH. He’ll call me to help, but oftentimes I can’t sit through and help him figure it out since I am also working. Usually I’d just do it for him since it’s faster but in the long run him not knowing how to do things is stressing us both out. Any recs on training tools, etc he could use?

Looking for suggestions for house plants (two or three varieties) that look good, don’t attract insects and worms, hardy, and low maintenance (don’t need daily watering). Now that WFH is here for some part of 2021, I wanted to bring some plants to my home office. Pictures of your own home office plants are also much appreciated. TIA!

Anybody else think next year is going to be worse for layoffs than this year? A lot of clients are setting up their 2021 budgets and allocating very little for capital projects. Seems like next year will be extremely light since customers aren’t spending as much. Hence more layoffs in consulting.

How many team matching opportunities does one get for google interview ? ( I see the position being posted on LinkedIn fairly every month , but I assume it depends on the manager to pick a resume for an individual to get the call right )
It was really late at the client one night and the partner was going to order the team dinner but said we had to deduct it from our per diem. This feels extremely cheap. Am I right or is this normal?
WWYD? Move from Accenture to BCG for a 40% raise, but cost of living increases 50%+ due to relocation. I'm up for promo this year at Accenture too, which brings BCG's offer to a mere 15% more.
