Was laid off in April and just got an offer for 25% more than i was making but for a role that I am not too excited about. Times are tough and i do need to get income. How bad is it to accept but continue with the rounds of interviews I started for roles I am more excited about?
Didn't have top grades, wasn't on law review. Worked at a midsize firm and was laid off in march-- have about 3 years experience in a hot practice area. Have been applying and had some interviews at larger shops but nothing has come of it. I'm still applying to roles (not many out there) in my area but coming to the realization based on number of larger firm rejection letter that I may not find a role. Where would you go from here if you were me? Was making good money at the midsize...

What is the EY severance package ?
Anyone else starting to feel nervous about the extra $600/week unemployment going away? Also, is it just me or does it seem stupidly misguided that the Senate/WH prefer to send another stimulus check instead of extending unemployment benefits? Stimulus checks go to a much smaller subset of the population and aren't necessarily going to help those impacted by COVID layoffs. Not to mention the argument that it disincentivizes people going back to work is dumb when there are no jobs to return to.
Has anyone been fired in their first year in PA? What did you do afterwards to be successful?

Avoiding the question about layoffs. Good job Miles.
Laid off. Applying to jobs. Besides networking, what are the top job search platforms/websites? There’s LinkedIn, indeed, monster and Glassdoor. Anything else I’m missing or which is the “best”?

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
First year associate here - really freaked out by FS layoffs and think I might be next. How am I supposed to find another job after 6 months?
Inspired by another thread- has anyone reported something and ended up taking a severance/ signing an NDA? What was your experience?
Is this the week I get laid off?
Got an offer in industry and also got fired by the firm within an hour yesterday 😂 finally living my life for once!
is there anything you can do to a previous supervisor who screwed you over due to discrimination ? Reported her to HR but not enough to get her fired.
Question for the more seasoned consultants, these layoffs and overall downturn in our industry, is it an annual cycle? Or is this abnormally bad
I recently accepted an offer at Wayfair start date 3/15. As soon as I accepted a dream job has now come up that is fully remote and is more inline with what I want to do (tech). What do I do? Should I push out my start date at Wayfair or do I just start with them on 3/15 and see if I get an offer at the tech company?
I have a dilemma: If you had 2.5 years as a recruiter, mixture of agency and corporate, what which opportunity would you choose? Option 1: RPO for a major corporate chain. (Light labor, service industry) Title is senior recruiter -65k a year but is onsite 4 days a week Option 2: inhouse with a growing software educational company in tech. 70k a year as a talent acquisition specialist. Perm remote Option 3: 5 month temp opportunity with the municipal government - remote at 82-90k
For the love of god, please let me deactivate incoming video feeds on Zoom when I’m on my mobile, otherwise I need to constantly move the presenter’s feed around to view a complete slide. Teams do that, and I don’t understand why Zoom, with its terrible UI, doesn’t allow that. And since you’re at it: make it obvious that you’re muted or not (with a discreet overlay sign for example)
Going from Big4 to MBB, should I share which firm I’m going to as part of the separation process? Or keep it on the DL? D at a B4 for context and not looking to burn bridges, if possible.
Preping for an interview for MBB. I never know how to prepare for the “tell me about a time you failed” q. Can anyone offer best way to approach this and perhaps an example?
ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
Here we go! ✈️ TSA, crying children, tourists, decks, calls, WebEx, perpetual email chains. Vroom Vroom.
I’m in final discussions with PwC for an SM2 role in tech consulting. What is a good TC to expect (base, bonus, sign in)
What's the best consulting firms for H1B folks who have studied masters in STEM here? Got a cousin graduating this fall and he needs to know H1B/GC policies.
We have a trip to Miami planned in two weeks. Just saw that Florida is averaging 20,000 cases day of mostly the delta variant. Super bummed as we’re both vaccinated and hopefully was going to get away, but looks like we may have to change plans. 😭
If Donald tweeted that he believes the Earth is flat, I bet a great deal of his followers will adopt that conspiracy too. Scary and sad.
Deloitte Digital folks: When‘s the best time to apply to junior roles? Only have a year of experience and every role on the career page now is for SCs/Ms, directors, or specific school hires.
Is 250k TC for a Director level position in industry the average for someone exiting a 200k TC manager position in consulting? Total 10 YOE with last 3 in consulting. Is the compensation and jump in title worth putting my small family through the trouble of relocating between coasts? Not sure I will see many more Director level exit opportunities if I let this pass and keep looking closer to home.
Ladies—I am terrified of flying—particularly the parts where we are not over land and the parts where turbulence is really bad. I literally just sit on the plane, staring at the map on the tv screen, with anxiety. I’m supposed to be flying across the world on a 14-hour non-stop flight in 2 weeks. I grew up moving/traveling and therefore flying a ton but always hated it and was scared. I haven’t been on a plane since September of 2019 (due to covid and moving to the same city as family). Advice?
I-140: PwC immigration wants me to bear the cost of premium filing for I-140. I understand this is standard. However, they are asking for $2,225 ($1,225 filing fee+$1,000 legal fee). Is this standard?
Would an experienced hiring manager or someone who exited to industry be willing to review my resume and offer advice/ suggestions over a phone call? Prefer someone SM-level & above 🙏
