Have you ever had a company call you about a past employee and have you ever told them that they got fired?
Got laid off. Have savings to hold me until I find a new position but mostly I'm just embarrassed. Has anyone ever gotten laid off and not told their friends/partner about it? I just don't want people in my circle to know I failed basically.
I got laid off today 🥲 would appreciate anyone who can help refer UX or product designer roles. 🙏
I was laid off from Deloitte in the 18th. I have an interview with Amazon for a Senior Program Managers Non Technical position with Amazon hiring manager on Monday. Any advice would be much appreciated. I would love to get into Amazon. I hear their interview process is brutal.
I’m a TC II so a little over a year into my career here. And everyday I think about quitting or possibly being fired. My dream is to open up a custom cookie and cake business. Has anyone done something like that? Opened a bakery? Or even had a small side business going? Should I just jump the Tax ship and start a bakery?!??
Hi, I currently work for an MNC and have received an offer from Hexaware in sep with joining date in dec last. What is the situation in SFDC domain in Hexaware currently with respect to projects and layoffs. My current company is best in terms of job security but due to the pay hike I have planned to shift as the current payscale is on the lowest in industry. Please provide your inputs on job security and work life balance in Hexaware
First time giving notice in house. I’d like to negotiate a severance agreement. Do you approach GC and say as you know I’m leaving. I’d be open to negotiating a termination agreement?
Question for anyone who was laid off but found a new job:
If you request unemployment between the offer and starting, do you not receive the benefit? Worried about stating I've received an offer and that I'm no longer looking, though my new employer is the one having me wait a few weeks.
I am seeking new employment, I was recently laid off due to lack of work. I would very much appreciate any leads. I have a Bs in Construction Management and over 15 years experience with Revit and AutoCAD and 7 years of plumbing design. I have solid references and impeccable work ethic. I truly enjoy what I do. Working remotely the last three years has become a way of my life and supports our current situation well, therefore I am seeking a similar role but will consider other opportunities.
Have the rumored layoffs at FIS impacted the Jacksonville office? Seeing that new building makes me wonder!
Months have gone by since I got laid off. Unemployed. Getting rejected from every job that I apply to. No interviews. I hope that I will have my first interview soon and find a job soon.
SWE with almost 2.5 YOE. I was laid off from my previous job at the end of July and accepted a new position for 115K, no performance or sign on bonus. Is this a good salary for a full stack SWE with my experience or should I have asked for more? They offered 110 and I negotiated to 115, I also have unlimited PTO.
After the layoff, my resume looks messy. 4 companies in 12 years, then 5th one for 3 months. How would I explain the lay off for my next full time offer (only if I manage to get one)
I just got laid off and I just don’t know what to say “if” I ever get an interview. Any tips would be appreciated. I know when you get laid off, no one wants to hire you.

Share your thoughts.
If the loss of health insurance for millions of Americans due to layoffs because of a health pandemic can't get buy in for Medicare for all, nothing will... Makes me sad
I started an in-house role about 5 months ago and I still don’t have enough work. I feel like I’m constantly flagging that I have capacity, but nothing has changed. Given the state of the economy, I’m getting worried about layoff and have started looking for new jobs. Any recs for how to spin my quick departure in interviews? Is being honest and talking about low volume okay?

Hi fishes, urgent. I have offers from two companies. One is offering x. Another x + 6. While telling the company (with x offer) that i have got offer from another company, do i have to show the whole offer letter to negotiate? And if i'm showing only the salary breakup page, should i hide the company logo?
Can HRs talk internally to mess with your offer from another company?
This question might anger some, but not meant to be provoking. Does anyone else feel that half the jobs in tech (scrum master, project manager, product manager, etc.) are more hindering than helpful? I feel like productivity would sky rocket if we didn’t have 10+ hours a week added of admin work/agile ceremonies/status meetings, and you just let developers and analysts do their job. Why are we spending hours learning how to estimate story points (for example) rather than improving production?

This upcoming year our school district is trying early release every Wednesday. I find it difficult to cover all the standards in a high school math class, and now I am concerned with having to modify/reduce our curriculum. It will take 10-15 minutes out of the period on Wednesdays. Do you think it will change what we can teach? A colleague suggested a flipped classroom. I teach in an affluent area that only spent a couple weeks remote learning for all last year. Thoughts on flipped classroom?
