So this happened. Since getting laid off I’ve been applying to every job that I believe I’m qualified for. 30 minutes after I hit send I received an email from the company stating that I did not have the right qualifications for the job. No one from the company looked at my portfolio. How do I get past the algorithm and get my work noticed by a real person?
Does anyone have any books/media to recommend on being an Asian in the USA / UK (and particularly being East or Southeast Asian)?

I have a gov law job with an offer to go to a great firm as a mid-level associate. Worried that if COVID continues, I’ll get laid off (much less likely at my gov job). Should I wait or go?
Few people in the world make more money than Mark Reed, John Wren, Michael Roth or Arthur Sadoun. Cant they offer anything to avoid layoffs?
I was laid off fall of last year, allegedly due to covid. I just saw that they re-listed my position and now am devastated and doubting everything about my career. I got good reviews at this and my previous jobs but many are cowardly about giving honest feedback. I took a step down and started a new job recently so I’ll be ok in the long run but the job I was laid off from was my “dream job”. I don’t have strong family/friend support, exacerbated by covid isolation. Any wisdom/advice?
You thought the last rounds of layoffs were bad? With continued political instability / uncertainty under Drumpf, companies will stop or slow spending on consulting and a bunch of us will get fired...
Does anyone else feel like some of the recent layoffs are premature? Especially with the President’s reopening guidelines today. I feel that agencies could of held on to employees longer.
Double dipping on severance and paycheck from new job. Can former companies even find out that you have a new job if you keep quiet?

Seeking Advice: To MBA or not? ~5 years total work experience post Bachelors in consulting (Finance + Consumer engagements) and FAANG (current - strategy, ops & analytics).
