If we had an advertising union no one would be worried if their projects paused right now because they would have health care and a weekly stipend if laid off. Unionize now!￼
I’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
Just got told by managers that my performance hasn't met their expectations. High performer last year. Am I getting fired?
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?
Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
I got fired from Facebook in 2013 and then got a better job at Google (five years now). I want to go back to Facebook, but I'm not sure if they'd consider me again, or if it's even less likely.
There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
How do you know if you’re getting a good severance package? And what / how should you negotiate ?
Which of these two can get a job quicker? A. The one who resigned and currently unemployed B. The one who got fired
What are the best reasons to go full-time after freelancing? I started freelancing a month ago after I was laid off thinking it would just be temporary but I’m really enjoying it so far. My stress levels are lower and the money is better. I have a few full time opportunities in the mix and I’m trying to gauge if I should go back to full-time or stick with freelance. For those who have taken a full time gig after a successful freelance run, what did you base your decision on?
If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
I felt very good following Dana’s Town Hall. Having heard other networks are already facing furloughs and layoffs, did you feel as encouraged?
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)

Any firms have a Cybersecurity PMO practice/competency/group? Very interested in moving over to more Project Management work in Cyber Security.
It's amazing how my Sunday night anxiety vanishes when I don't have to travel for the week.
Very annoying with SMs can't see the bigger picture and get caught up in minor details of things that don't matter to the goals and objectives of a project.

Wonder if anyone can offer advice on which cert to pursue next? I obtained my CompTIA Security+ last year and wondering if I should go for the CySA+ or Pentest+ next. I also have my AWS CCP and will be sitting for the Solutions Architect soon as well. Currently not doing security stuff at work but would love to keep my skills going. I was hoping one of these next certs will help me finally break into a security role and love the idea of pentesting but not sure if the CySA+ is more beneficial.
My ultimate future goal is to work in vulnerability management or penetration testing. Is it possible to switch to one of these roles coming from a cyber strategy background if I learn the scanning tools, linux, networking, etc in my own time? Or will nobody take a chance on me once I’m 5 years into my career? Or will they but my salary will go down significantly as I’ll kind of be a newbie again?
Since the last day of month is a federal holiday (Memorial Day), will direct deposits hit the following day?
