Time to have some snacks and a good drink and sit back and watch the show!
Anyone having layoffs?
After 25 years working for an organization I was laid off and I started working as a consultant for TKE system .
- I really love the work I do in the company I am assigned to provide services but I confess my concern is lack of “stability “ working as a consultant.
Can anyone that work as a consultant tell me the pros and cons you see ? Do you work only as a contractor can you share your insights?
Hi recruiters, please give me the brutal truth:
I just got laid off and I'm feeling really jazzed and excited about the change. Is that naive to feel in this climate?

Interested to know others’ thoughts: would you consider the actuarial profession to be recession proof? Do you think there are some tracks that are more protected than others?

I’m relatively new to consulting, so I have a question for the old-timers that have done their time. What generally happens at Accenture or in general within consulting when there is a recession? Who are the first to be laid off? What can a Senior analyst do to make themselves “harder” to lay off?
If you've been laid off, how upfront are you about it in interviews? Better to let them know right away or further into the process?
