As you all may know by now that there is always an if involved so the myth is if you are average smart and hard worker you will not get fired. Now there are people who are street smart and will get the job but won’t last long because they are not avg smart in their field and are not hard worker

As I mentioned above there is always an if there, I was speaking about how things are currently. The people who lost jobs in recession could be really smart and hard working and just lost jobs because of recession. Also, I started post recession so have no idea how many people lost jobs.

i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.

So I left B4 risk assurance because I found the work a drag and moved to a boutique place where I was hoping to get a better experience or shape my career the way I want. However, this place isn’t what I was expecting and the project I’m on requires deadly hours and is staff aug. I’m looking to do this for a year and go back to b4 (as I like being in a bubble) but a different service line. How possible is this?

I sometimes listen to Ben Shapiro, I am a libertarian myself. While he clearly has a point of view that he transparently shares I feel he does a good job in explaining the thoughts of the other side and gives actual quotes and live clips to back up his position. on his show, he told his viewers to tune into pod save america, the liberal version of his show. I've listened to it multiple times now, and it just seems to be people venting their own opinions with certainly not as much substance
