So what’s happening in the local shops? Layoffs? Hiring freezes?

With so much uncertainty in the economy and waves of layoffs that have hit tech especially hard... do we think there's really such a thing as a recession-proof job anymore if you're not an "essential worker"?

For those who are struggling during the holiday season: I finally had the courage to talk to my doctor about my depression and drinking problems. I don't know why I waited so long. Started crying in the first 5 minutes and felt immensely better after the session. There is no shame in looking for help. We can still be successful and strong and self-sufficient. Hang in there!

"why are you looking for a new role?"

What's the point of this question?

We ask our candidates this and I don't really care what the answer is. It seems like we're asking the candidate to lie to us. The real answer is always unflattering.

"I would like better compensation or better working conditions"

"I was fired from my previous job"

"I don't like my manager"

"I have disagreements with management"

All terrible answers. And any "good" answers come across as fake to me.

Always wondered if people got actually fired for working abroad during the pandemic.

My partner is an Occupational Therapist and she was laid off in March when NYC closed schools and therefore her clinic. Initially she claimed unemployment but they moved to tele-therapy so she’s been earning an hourly rate. However she’s struggling as they are consistently not been paying her the correct amount and with no explanation. She had an employment contract to end of Aug with a 3 month notice period that they did not give to her. Could she possibly force them to pay out her contract?
