Most likely getting fired, tips on how to find a job ASAP? I made a pretty big mistake that required supplemental filings with government offices to fix (missed some items when reviewing/comparing long lists of things across 20-30 years). It’s fixable and the client isn’t really getting hurt by this (worst case signing gets delayed), but my anxiety is telling me to prepare for the worst. Can I ask for extra time at the firm to find a new job (so I wasn’t “fired”)? Or should I go for severance?
Odd question, but is it possible to get laid off on purpose? I’m looking for other opportunities anyway and getting laid off might not be a bad thing in my situation to be honest. Anyone have any advice on how to achieve this lol
Hi, I am an engineer with a master degree . I worked for more than a decade as an engineer. I then switched to product marketing through mba. I was recently laid off from a series B startup . I have 3 years gap due to mba and children. I am 44 . I know I am way way behind in my career. I have an upcoming interview . The position is product manager ( 175k base + yearly bonus, no stock ) . I feel I will never catch up :( Any word of advice or positivity greatly appreciated.
Round of layoffs happening at 360i today. Don’t worry guys, take it as a blessing in disguise - you all deserve better than that place. ❤️
Looking for some insight. I recently got laid off from a growing start up. I loved the culture, the product, & they actually promote their people. I’ve been an BDR for a year at my previous company & then only a month at this one. My goal is to become an AE but now I’m wondering if that’s what I want. Ive been in tech in the Bay Area for 2+ years with previous experience in data management. Thinking of rebranding & getting into partner marketing or anything to get me to 6 figures. Thoughts?
How has COVID affected your workload, if at all? My group has a lot more work to do, and less resources with which to do it. But I don't worry about layoffs, so overall I'm happy to be where I am.

Has anyone else developed a massive paranoia about getting fired? I’m terrified that any mistake will get me fired. My manager is very emotional in their reactions so it’s traumatized me a bit
I just had really intense feedback from my PML. I guess using "not getting fired" as my only goal for 2020 is seen as unprofessional and unmotivating. Any suggestions for goals to put in?
Does anyone have input as to how most designers or graphic designers are doing during this pandemic? Since January 2020, I became laid off from my job working full-time and remotely for a Southwest Florida urologist that I worked for about 10 years. no it seemed I was going to get my job back around July of last year, he decided to create a partnership with an oncologist who had his own marketing team. Because of the partnership, it looks like I can only work freelance for them now.
Project Leader in team meeting: “If there’s no work for this team to do (for the remainder of the project), then your jobs will be gone.” A few weeks later, after completing everything planned for the MVP, our team was laid off.

Can someone help me understand this?

I graduated in 2009... went straight to grad school lol
I was in manufacturing back then, weekly layoffs of people that had been with the company for decades while I stuck around as a 23 year old recent grad was uncomfortable. This doesn't feel at all like then, I see a quick rebound and steady climb through summer
I was getting promoted to SA then. They were laying off folks every Friday. Now feels different since we hired too many people last year, but still times are not good.

I like EY2's optimism. The EU needs the UK so the terms won't be onerous. Or maybe the queen will just tell her subjects to eff off!
I was around. About 1 in 4 ppl in my office got laid off, mostly at the Senior and Manager level, leaving behind a bunch of SM and junior staff.
