People with multiple kids are probably the ones who are really looking to FIRE but, paradoxically, aren't quite able to due to the pressure of meeting current demands (mostly money, but also time) and not saving/investing quickly enough.
If I get laid off, I’d prefer it be done on Monday not Friday. I don’t want my weekend ruined thinking about it.
Layoffs at Edelman. 7% of workforce. VP +under.
Watch out for random performance complaints and managers downright ghosting you. Pushed by all-white male leadership.
They're targeting juniors/mid-level,. Data shows they're targeting BIPOC.
I predict that for the future Workday will have a difficult time deploying for small and medium enterprise customers at lower price points. Most of the firms that did these types of deployments only made money towards the tail end through more lucrative support contracts but take a look at how many of them sold themselves in recent months or had layoffs (CS, Sierra-Cedar, Alchemy).
Anyone else having to deal with being laid off because of lack of work right now, and how are you doing mentally and emotionally?
Fishes need ur help...my friend s been laid off without notice...any quality analyst jobs please let me know....would be really grateful 2 u all...
Local counsel on a standard commercial real estate transaction wanted to have a conference call about issuing a form opinion so Borrower’s counsel fired him and found another guy.
I’ve been submitting applications because my company has been doing layoffs and pay cuts. I was informed yesterday that they will be doing additional pay cuts starting next week. First my bonus was cut by 60% and now they have mentioned they are going to cancel it altogether. When interviewing for new positions how should I explain why I’m looking for a new job even though I still (at least currently) have a job, just major pay cuts?
Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?
It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.
Thanks in advance!
I was laid off last month. I am Workday PM certified but have lost access to Workday community after the layoff. Any ideas on how to regain access to community while I still look for a job?
Getting married next year and want a more stable job. My partner and I are ok with frequent travel and relocation. My concerns are about layoffs and pipeline of work. Any companies you recommend?
Anyone know Deloitte core business group in Deloitte consulting LLP?
Salary range, business outlook of this group amid layoffs and green card initiation timeline?
I’m looking for a new job after I lost my Head Of Brand role with my previous employer’s layoffs (it was a media and travel startup). It feels like a weird time for job searching… i’m getting interviews cancelled and roles being closed without hiring. Starting to feel some PTSD from job hunting in 2009.
Any leads? I’m looking for Head of Brand, Design Director or even Senior Brand Designer roles.
I referred two friends to PwC and both got an offer. (first got the Dir and Second Sr). I got laid off two weeks ago. Is there any way I can collect the referral money?
Other struggling to find work? I graduated law school in 2018 and have had such a tough time. I started out at a boutique firm, but was laid off in Oct 2019 due to a restructuring decision. After months of searching, I finally landed another position at a boutique firm only to get laid off again one month later due to the pandemic. I look for work daily and have had a handful of interviews, but nothing has stuck. It’s difficult to handle the rejection and I just don’t know what to do anymore...

I just completely bombed my interview with McKinsey. I don’t even know if there is room for redemption for my next interview. Would it be bad if I emailed the person who interviewed me and asked this? If I don’t even have a chance anymore, isn’t it in everyone’s best interest to let me know now so that I don’t waste the second interviewer’s time?

BF and I are moving in together and each have a scale. Trying to figure out which one to keep/why the inaccuracies. When we weigh ourselves, there’s anywhere from 0.2-1.2lb difference, with my scale being the one that tends to lean heavier 99% of the time. We put a 10lb weight on both and each scales weighs it accurately. We only want to keep one so how do we choose 🙃
Seeking advice from experienced small business owners. I'm thinking about transitioning from a small physical shop (art, jewelry, incense, books) to doing it all online. For anyone who's made the switch or had an online shop for a while, what are the must-do's and the must avoids for switching over? Business is good so not worried about losing patrons, just want to make it as seamless as possible.
