First thing I did when I was laid off was get tacos at 4AM at a 24hr taco spot... Because I could (before I had kids).

Next day I movie hopped all day. It was awesome. This, too, shall pass. Enjoy the time off if you can afford it for a month or two.

Hearing this gives me that queasy feeling in my chest because it happened to me a few years back on this very day. You will be okay. Stay positive. New challenges await in 2019

Sorry to hear OP. Good news is that you dont have to wait long for the next hiring cycle. Take a break for the holidays and jump right back in after the new year

Sorry to hear this OP. Hoping you can enjoy the holidays. Things should pick up following!!!

So sorry to hear this! I was laid off a month ago too. I’m kind of enjoying the time off right now, to be honest. Hope you find something good when you’re ready. ❤️

You’ll get through this! It happens to all of us. We survive!

Sorry to hear OP. Don’t let this destroy your confidence. It happens to anybody. Happened to me and so many other people I know. You’ll find something even better. And yes, make personal projects. Brush up your portfolio, and take meetings. And if you can afford to wait before accepting something else, take you time to meet and find the right agency for you. All the best

Best wishes, OP, stay strong, take the time off, and come back refreshed.

Why is it recommended you give a company 2 weeks notice when you are leaving but at the same time, when they are laying you off/firing you, they typically do it on the spot. I have known countless people layed off/fired on the spot over the years (especially after busy season) and everyone else when they leave give 2 week notice. Why should we relinquish power to corporations? Corporations really don't care about us. They pretend they do.

They act like seeing a psychologist is the worst thing to do.

Federal Register confirms 2023’s 8.7% COL increase. Associate at Ogletree and my expected 2023 base salary will NOT reflect a full 8.7% increase from my 2022 salary. So I’ll effectively accept a pay cut IF I stay with OD in 2023. Also seems to mean my added yr of seniority/experience is effectively not accounted for in 2023’s salary. Is this a universal experience across comparable firms or are other firms doing across-the-board increases in light of 2023’s 8.7% COL jump? Am I overthinking this?

Is anyone at a job they really, truly enjoy that also pays competitively (and has good benefits)? In my experience, I haven’t found anything that satisfies both.

Maybe it’s just the way this industry is?
