Been laid off for few months. Should I start including how many Instagram Follow-Me Givaways I’ve won on my resume? I know what you’re thinking. “No,” right? But I’ve won 3. Which seems above-average.

Just got hired, a week in. Hearing rumblings about “restructuring” and “realigning” of my team. I’m super nervous. Usually those words mean downsizing / layoffs. Is this concerning? ☹️

Does anyone get emails from InHerSight? I was recently laid off from a top 10 accounting firm, had been there 7 years. I’m a little torn on what my next steps will be, especially due to the way my firm handled layoffs (essentially we were thrown away like garbage). But today I got an email talking highly about PWC... Are things at PWC really that much better than all the other firms? Curious for anyone’s input. Photos in comments of todays email. Thanks!
