7 months in and about to be laid off due to COVID. No idea where to turn. Good reviews, just serious downsizing. Ready to take on my next challenge
What triggers layoffs at agencies besides Covid? Losing accounts? Pretty fresh in the industry but I see convos about people getting laid off & I feel like I wouldn’t see it coming if it were to happen.
I realized most of my anxiety or depression stems from a lack of career fulfillment. I recently started a new position and things were going great till they restructured my group and laid off a few on my team. Now I'm always looking over my shoulder and too concerned about screwing up. In the past, I have been laid off & I can't help reading too much in to every single email. My therapist made me aware of this but I'm looking for coping tools that someone in my situation has found useful. HELP!
General question: If you get laid off from a job, and have ~6 month’s of expenses saved, would you simply focus on getting a new job, or getting a new job that pays more? Should you ever take a pay cut, especially in times like these?
A lot of layoffs happening again. Any tips for a woman in her late 20’s looking to change careers or companies? What resources have been helpful, for you, as you have looked for new opportunities and advocated for your worth?
Have you ever been rolled off a project suddenly? Should I be paranoid of a 4 rating or being laid off.
Do you think employees can be fired or laid off if our offices open but we’re not comfortable going back?
Just received a text asking about layoffs in the Big 4 in tax. I don’t know of anything. Who is laying off tax talent right now?! Tax reform could happen again in literally a few months!
Hi all, I was a civil Engineer earlier and was laid off facing the Covid brunt and have upgraded to Data Science now, actively looking for a job to support my family. So if anyone can help or give leads it would be grateful to help support my family. Please please 🙏🏼
Folks that have been laid off in their careers, did you take a pay cut in your rebound role? How big and how'd you cope?
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
Layoffs and furloughs thread. What firms are cutting and furloughing? Across all industries.
HELP! Recently promoted M1, and a very low-performing staff is threatening to go to HR with harassment allegations as a means to protect herself from getting fired. Suggestions?
Got laid-off in November and started at a boutique firm two month ago and I'm just so bored. Work is boring and there isn't much structure for anything. Missing D today.
10 Years Happiness Curve. What were you doing in 09vs19? I will start..Laid off and was negative at this time in 09 Vs gainfully employed now and happy but restless sometime.
For a Company the size of 500 employees, what are your recommended corporate communication policies for announcing furloughs or layoffs?
Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.
My agency will not fire a notoriously lazy and indecisive woman ECD through multiple rounds of layoffs because of the optics
I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime￼. Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again￼￼￼￼. ￼ Any tips to help me make the transition?￼￼ Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)

Not so fun one: drank too much at the holiday party and feel like a total idiot. Nothing happened but still, lesson learned. Any advice on how to recover?
I am currently in industry, but was a Senior in Accounting Advisory, and before that an audit associate. I’m thinking of trying DDV at PwC as I’ve always been interested in M&A integration, but am unsure on carry over of skills and also would like to go somewhere I can be bumped to Manager as I was almost there prior to leaving industry. I know they are on a hiring spree so would coming in as a Manager be possible? I’ve previously been on M&A audit/AAS engagements.
Health care is being rationed in several states. This is getting serious. This is definitely worth learning more about as hospital refuse critically ill patients who do not have covid. Emergency rooms are literally flooded, critically ill pts (w covid) wait hours on end in their car to get in to see a doctor. What a MESS https://www.adn.com/nation-world/2021/09/13/alabama-man-dies-after-being-rejected-by-43-hospitals-in-3-states-family-says-as-covid-packs-icus/ https://www.marketwatch.com/amp/story/alaska-joins-idaho-in-rationing-health-care-as-hospitals-are-packed-with-covid-patients-and-who-says-africa-is-being-left-behind-in-vaccine-push-11631717516 https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/2021/09/14/amid-covid-19-overload-providence-alaska-medical-center-now-prioritizing-care-under-crisis-standards/
Anyone exit to McDonalds in Chicago? I see a lot of MBB move there; wondering about the pay and WLB like for a manager role in their Digital Strategy Group
I feel like I’m not learning anything at my internship. It’s easy work and good pay though. Should I try to take on another project or multiple to try to gain more experience? But I was told it’ll be much harder and I would be expected to work longer hours and managers will be rough on me. Is this worth it when I go to school full-time as well while trying to balance a part time job? (The internship at D is expected to be part time but they might make me work more).
Hello all! I am an MBA in Accounting graduate who has had a few AR jobs in my past professional career and in my current role, I do GL postings and reconciliations and ensure everything for my assigned account is entered and posted to the GL. I really want to transition fully into the Accounting world but when I apply for Staff Accountant jobs (in my mind a step above entry-level), I don't get many calls. What am I doing wrong? What should I be applying for with my education and experience?
Beginner interning at PwC this summer. Nervous about expectations but planning to get Security+ and messing around w/ other tools. What can I expect and any infoSec intern advice?

Hello everyone Currently am working with shriram life insurance as a Business Development Manager has been from last 2 and half year of experience. Before that am working for yes bank, now am looking for enter in IT sector. Can plz suggest me any references or the thing which i should adopt.
here's my prediction. If Biden wins, the media will begin to message the following; -The worst COVID risks and outcomes are to people with identifiable risk factors such as obesity and diabetes. -Most other people who catch it will experience a bad flu. -Many other people who catch it won't even know they have it. -It's not commonly transmitted by touching objects and person to person transmittal is low risk except in close contact. The media will then message that we should; (cont'd)
I was fired by my firm in Oct for a combo of covid-related & other reasons, jumped right into volunteering for Biden campaign, then spent Dec/Jan dealing with family issues. Now trying to figure out how to address in interviews, what to do about writing samples & references. In the past I’ve only worked with recruiters when they contacted me about a particular job. Can I hire a recruiter to help me with my job search? Or a career coach? If so, how do I find the right person?
am I the only person who doesn't care for general 'consultant types'? I find this culture so foreignly pretentious, image-obsessed, and materialistic. I feel like I'm the only one.

What’s the main reason for the different targets for US/UK/EU offices of the same big law law firm? Pure culture differences or actually much busier on the American side of the Atlantic?
Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance
Just started from undergrad (target if that matters) at a T2, seeing as MBB is raising base salaries, I’m now I’m more motivated to lateral. How many months do I need at my current firm before I can be considered a for a lateral? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
