I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
If you get fired from Deloitte (or similar), what would they say in a background check? Would they say “would not rehire” or something like that? Anyone have any issues with this?
Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
If you are laid off and cannot find a job doing your day job, what will you do? I am trying to prepare a plan b and c. My car is too old for Uber eats etc. curious your thoughts.
Anyone worried about layoffs? I saw a post about Deloitte laying off 5000 employees ... I know EY saying no lay off this year but what about other firms?
Just received a COBRA insurance letter from current employer - recently got hired by this employer. I’m confused, I thought COBRA was offered after you resigned or are laid off?

Would you get fired if you edit your department partners’ picture and send it to your colleague?
Hey my ADHD peeps, serious question. I was diagnosed in my early 40s which explains A LOT of my life's failures (i.e. changing college majors, multiple job changes/getting fired, bad with time management). None of that pales in comparison than getting divorced. Is it worth it to reach out to my ex to let him know what I learned? I don't want to get back with him. We are complete opposites and I think that telling him can possibly provide solace for both of us. Thoughts?
If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?

Can I be fired for constantly getting same feedback from my engagement managers that I need to pay attention to details? How do I improve on this?
How do you know if you’re in the hot seat/might get fired or if it’s just paranoia? I feel constantly on edge...
For those in senior positions- how are you not constantly worried about the success of your work? There’s so many things that can affect P&L that are out of your control, how do you stay calm and not feel like you’re going to get fired as soon as growth slows?
Lately, for some reason, I feel like I’ve really hit a wall. I feel no motivation to do anything and constantly procrastinate until the last minute to work on an assignment. Then, I’d stress about doing a bad job and getting fired. This is a vicious cycle and I know that I should seek counseling. But beyond that, what else should I do? Has anyone experienced this before, and how did you get out of this cycle?
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?

Do condos need plywood subfloor under engineered wood for sound insulation? In the middle of a project to replace carpet, and condo guys keep stalling the project coz we aren't installing a subfloor.
My wife doesn’t invest her money in stocks, mutual funds , CDs. She just has a 401k and all her savings go into a savings account which basically yields nothing. I coax her into investing and have often told her about inflation over the years and lower of compounding but she is too scared that investing would take her money away. You guys have similar issues and how have you dealt with it ?
I know tech salaries are lower but equity compensation makes up the difference. But does it really make up the difference if you’re making $200k plus salary in a non tech job?
My Senior keeps giving me (A1 newhire) vague and conflicting information for what they want me to work on. I just got moved to this client a week and a half ago to help out with filing, and am expected to go off a simple look at X section and figure it out. Just stresses me out a ton and feel like I cant assist with anything legit. Ill ask for clarifications but it just seems like im going in circles. Were supposed to be filing next Friday and its not looking up.
