Shared this in the main consulting bowl but sharing here as well. Cards Against Humanity had a Black employee committed to a psych ward against his will for speaking up about racism:
Hello, I am mid-career, and PT freelancing for almost a year. I have an MBA and B.S. Marketing. I have thick skin, so no need to sugarcoat.
1. What’s the best way to address employment gaps on my resume? Had 2 layoffs in my 20 years exp.
2. I have a unique name that usually makes people think my parents were hippies.
3. I am applying to some jobs that don’t need the mba. Is that hurting my chances?
4. Diverse skill set. I can’t fit all of my exp on a one-page resume, is that an issue?
Is it normal to be hired for a niche skillset for a specific project and then laid off because they couldn’t find another project for you? Is it your fault for being too niche or the sales guys for
Has anyone dealt with contractors threatening to lien their property. I fired a contractor and I will need to redo everything but they claim they did the work to standard and are demanding payment. Not sure if I should get a lawyer now or if/when they actually lien my house.
Had a fight with my MD or let's say more like argument. After that the next 2 months was endless nitpicking and pulling me for mistakes that aren't really in my control.
Post 3 months, I apply for a transfer. Transfer process delayed for some process reasons
No negatives/issues in my f22 feedback. Utilization above target. Way Above average

Who should I escalate to?

Hi all, I was recently impacted by layoffs and hoping for some leads for Sr. HRBP, or similar, roles either remote or in the Greenville, SC area.
8 years of progressive HR experience in tech/media, e-commerce, insurance, and mining/manufacturing.
Have primarily been an individual contributor but have led COE teams of 4 on two separate occasions.
Experienced in creating HR structure very quickly in US/UK. Have unique and successful experience in the contact center space, as well.
Even with all the info out in the open, it’s clear that stealing others’ work gets you hired, and being a whistleblower gets you fired. What does this mean for the rest of us normal, honest folk?
I have got an offer for data engineer at Vmware.
Just wanted to know if I should join or not amidst layoffs and recession and broadcom vmware acquisition is also going on

The company I work for (as a 1099 contractor) failed to have me complete a W-9. Therefore, they do not have my tax id number, but have already wire transferred me 10 months worth of pay (in exchange for 10 months worth of work).
Now, layoffs are happening. Just curious...what would happen if I never give them a W-9 or my tax ID number...
I've changed jobs every year for the past 5 years, within the same field; I haven't worked at a place I would consider spending a long time at. I've never been fired or even written up, but the job changes are reflecting as negative when looking for a new job. Any suggestions to get perspective employers to give me a chance?
Is it safe to hide the fact that I was part of a group layoff and say instead that I chose to leave? Can recruiters find out the truth from my former employer and hurt my chances?
Do you think that Avanade will have mass layoffs? I am relatively new to the company, should I be worried?
Ladies, I had dinner with a friend and his wife and my friend (also a consultant) said he was worried about me being laid off. Any of you nervous about this right now? How are you dealing with it?
Layoffs are common. Why blame few private firms?
Hey everyone. I was just laid off from my job today. If anyone has any opportunities I would really appreciate it. Thank you
Sooo we just had a town hall with the managing partner/CEO and I don't know if it was intentional, but the background was his MASSIVE, palatial country/vacation house. Am I wrong for feeling that this he was a bit out of touch? Especially since many of us associates are still scrambling for work and we're under constant fear of being laid off.
I quit my previous job approximately 5-6 months ago due to toxic culture and being pressured to commit fraud… I fear hiring managers see that I’ve been out of work for this time and may assume I was fired or laid off. Additionally I’ve had a couple interviews where company “X” interviewers have commented on this and in an effort to not bad mouth my previous employer I’m stuck with a generic answer like I want to take my career to the next level with Company “X.” Any thoughts/advice?
LayOff news is true, 10000 Headcount is quoted. Is this count combined for US and India both country?
I didn't see anyone posted about Lay Off in India as of now.
Why does no one discuss the real elephant that’s in the room? Most people hired in tech the last few years weren’t qualified. A few years of woke friends hiring woke friends lead us here. The positions that are getting laid off are mostly admin/recruiter related (jobs with transferable skills most people can do). It’s not the end of the world, people will find other jobs. Just no more made up titles making 6 figures at home watching Netflix (good thing).
Hi, I am looking for a job due being laid off. I have experience working with ServiceNow as an end user with my previous company. Would that be enough to get a job with ServiceNow?

I received a fixed penalty notice from the border force in UK for 10k euro for a Covid reg violation for flying into the airport via a non designated port from a red list country (Greece). I was only passing through as a connecting flight, which was allowed under current regulation, on my way back to the states. I attempted to appeal but border force said there is no appeal process. The only two options is to pay the fine or they will impose a criminal penalty then have legal recourse.

I'm an introvert, so never been in love with parties to begin with, but my friend group are starting to host parties again post covid. I've had a pretty miserable time the last 18 months and pretty much have nothing nice to say. I like my friends and I value their friendship but i dont know what to say that wont make me a debbie downer. Any advice? Lie? Be cagey? Be honest? FWIW Im happy to listen to them drone on about their boring lives.
If you leave PwC before you pass the CPA exams can you still get your work experience hours signed off by the firm if you pass exams after you quit?

This is more on mental health but I know this is an active bowl. How do you go about finding a therapist? I have so much anxiety - especially around work - it’s becoming crippling. I think I need help but I have no idea where to start??? I don’t have a PCP so are there other options or places to look?
Is Netflix's binge-watching behavior causing our generation to lose ambition and drive? I know it sounds like a stretch but if your favorite season is handed to you on a silver, continous platter, you won't fight for anything.

I am a California teacher looking to relocate. My son is pushing for Boerne. I have spent most of my life in small private Christian schools and loved it! When I moved to public school the large class sizes and trauma/sped students filling my classroom burned me out. I moved to homeschool this year (with my same district) and love it!!! I am curious about teaching in Texas. Class sizes, special ed, private school, etc. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
My girl friend in USA is planning to apply for Canada tourist visa (I am in Canada) so she can travel meanwhile we figure out other visa options.
She has an approved i797 but not stamped on the passport yet. Has anyone applied for Canda visa without US stamping or faced any issues ?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Family 👋🏾 I hate to take up ppl’s time with this (I’ve reported both users as well) but I’ve been getting messages from men pretending to be black women. The profile picture will show a black woman but the name in parenthesis will belong to a man.
Just wanted to call it out as a scam /weird in case anyone else is getting strange messages.
