Doesn't matter. I actually think rumors help s bit so that people who are affected are not completely blindsided. Once an affected person posts, it's no longer a rumor but a fact.

Just because someone's been laid off and posts about it on here doesn't constitute a trend and it shouldn't be treated as an indication of one.

My daughter is a college student fresh into her career. She previously worked for T-Mobile in sales/customer service. She resigned from this role after 3 years for a better opportunity at a tech start-up. She was with the company for 3 weeks, today they called her and said they could no longer afford her salary and would be letting her go. They are paying her a small severance and allowed her to keep her equipment and office set up. Does anyone know of any opportunities that are available?

Generally, does it look bad on a resume to go from a from full-time job to freelance? If that’s what you want, I don’t think it should, but folks might think you got fired or randomly quit or something.

I was laid off from my previous job because of COVID so don’t have a ton of leverage. But that shouldn’t make me powerless. The process just seems like overkill.

So I was laid off back in mid April after 5 short months with a job that I absolutely loved. I’m applying to mid-senior level jobs and being told that I’m overqualified and should apply for VP level jobs. When I apply to VP level jobs I’m told those are hired internally. So, do I just lie on the resume to dumb it down?! Also- should I list the layoff in the resume and then in the ATS they have so it doesn’t look like I wasn’t just quitting after 5 months? I have it in my cover letter but is it
