A previous bullish outlook and now a weak expected earnings period

Definitely not a sign of economic strength... Hoping it's related to specific weak areas of the economy (ex. Energy and FS) and not a broad economic weakening

We're already in a 3 quarter earnings recession (lower earnings YOY, quarter over quarter) heading for quarter 4

^overall S&P 500

OP - ha! We've actually kicked the market's ass...doubled in 3.5 years

Got laid off on Monday. Felt okay at first, but now feel inadequate and useless since Julie Sweet mentioned the 25K that Accenture laid off were low performers. I know I wasn’t a poor performer, I got dinged for not doing enough projects in my practice, but still go top reviews for my projects. Just want to vent.

Going on 5 months since I was laid off and I’m slowing losing hope. I’ve exhausted all my contacts, my network, people not even in my network. I feel that I’m never not looking and I’m running out of options. I know I’m not alone by any stretch but somehow it doesn’t make it easier.

Laid-off 🐠: If you lost your job this month and contributed to a FSA or HSA, you have until Thursday (4/31) to spend those funds. It’s your pre-tax money, and will disappear if it’s not spend before then. This is something HR seems to fail to mention, and you may have several hundred dollars in that account.

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?
