Seattle d&a

Heard of this in Seattle, but it sounded isolated to Seattle. Do you know if a lot of the layoffs were Society people?

EY3 - not fake news unfortunately

What is d&a?

@SC3: data and analytics

I always find it funny when they layoff in one area and hire for The same skill set some where else. Wish they offered people jobs in other parts of the country. If EY offered positions somewhere else thats cool.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
