I’m feeling lost. I’m in my 30s and my career has been mediocre and now there is the prospect of layoffs. I haven’t had a romantic relationship last longer than a few months and I don’t have any close friends. I feel like I am failing on every front and I don’t know how to turn it around. I feel like I need some radical change but can’t figure it out Anyone have similar experience and was able to find a way out?
If you were fired / terminated by a prior employer, when searching for a new job, what would you say if the application / recruiter asks if you got fired or why you left the prior job? Will the reason pop up during background check? Would companies really give you a 2nd chance if you are being honest about the fact that you got fired? (Note: assuming pre-COVID)
Ugh. Democrats will see this as obvious proof that many conservatives are conspiracy theorists that have lost their minds, conservatives will see this as proof the deep state exists and that this dude fought it with inside information. Or proof that you can be fired for "conservative views..." https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/09/21/nih-william-crews-covid-19-fraud-retire-anthony-fauci/5860559002/
Deloitte peeps: is there a typical time of the year when people get laid off (e.g., after year-end, before year-end, any time on the beach)?
If you were laid off or fired would you apply for your current job? I was laid off from Big 4 audit in 2016 after working there for 2 years and it was one of the best things to happen to me. 1. It allowed me to reflect and decide what was important in my next career. 2. Losing a job isn’t as frightening as it seems. 3. Accountants have major job security as I got a job offer within 2 weeks. When you’re miserable at work ask yourself would you apply for your current job?
Looking for advice on dealing with the shame of being layed off. I feel I was let go inspire of excellent performance and this keeps haunting me. By the way I joined a new firm immediately after the layoff however it still keeps bugging me 😔😔

Humor me please. I don’t understand his many people esp. in the US with a college background go months unemployed after being laid off. On LinkedIn I feel like recruiters are often reaching out and there are so many job opportunities. What am I missing?
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
Curious for thoughts on why a firm who laid off associates last year—many of whom “just happened” to be parents—is celebrated by Diversity Lab and other organizations for its diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts? Or, in any event, why does anyone in the Big Law industry put up with such blatant levels of hypocrisy?
Anyone hear anything about RSM layoffs? Have heard tumors there was a mass layoff in a CA office.
I worked at PwC and just got laid off for seemingly no reason. Does anyone have any leads for data analytics/data strategy/data engineering type roles? I’m happy so share my performance feedback as well. It’s pretty solid.

I got an offer from a fintech. Slight raise to what I currently make at EY. What should I consider when making my decision to accept/reject the offer?
I just watched the KPMG boss video and honestly I feel it can be interpreted in different ways. You can tell when a person says something to intentionally hurt you and when they can’t just fathom the implications based on how people interpret it. As we learn to work in an increasingly diversity focused environment I pray there’s room for forgiveness. Mind you I am a person of color. I believe in second chances and I don’t think he should have lost his job. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9253165/KPMG-boss-QUITS-video-showed-telling-paid-staff-lucky.html

Anyone in tech - how do you handle junior Dev dudes who are simultaneously green, and too arrogant to admit they don't know what they're doing / won't admit a woman might know more than them. Had a Dev on my team drop the ball significantly on a client deliverable, but keeps insisting he understands and wastes hours trying to figure out stuff on his own bc he refuses to allow me to explain it to him. If I had the time, I'd just take over and do it myself at this point, but I don't.

Do MBB have facial hair policies?
Is this new “don’t hire portfolios” philosophy getting out of hand and agencies are ending up hiring shitty creatives?
The problem with diversity is they focus on a quota rather than changing the culture of marginalized groups in the office. So often people speak over me, take credit for my ideas... and it's accepted.
Is it difficult to switch to another office in the same region at your MBB? Ex: Chicago to Minneapolis for family reasons
