Occidental slashing dividends in half is absolute trash. Why did covid have to hit my pockets like THIS.
I was laid off from my job in July due to covid. I’ve been applying like crazy, looking in the campus recruiting/campus programs space, as that is where I’ve spent my entire career. I’ve made it to final rounds three times without an offer. I’m discouraged and feeling like I must be missing something other than just years of experience if they keep going with someone else. Recommendations for free or low cost trainings/certifications that could beef up my skill set and get me to the finish line?

Hello ladies! I’m putting together a virtual conference in April and need a speaker for one of our sessions. The session is about COVID-19 and the impact of women in the workforce. We are looking for someone who has either willingly left their job during the pandemic or was let go by their organization. Women have been disproportionately impacted as we see with the number of women who have left the workforce since the beginning of 2020. If anyone is interested or knows someone let me know!

I feel like i want to be done with the human race. Before COViD I truly liked people, my work, and I had good friendships and hobbies.
Now, I just want to turn my back on my career, as pros in my field are never trusted or valued. I’ve lost interest in hanging out with people other than my GF and my dogs. So much entitlement in people today.
I’ve just had earth shaking levels of disappointment in life. Two divorces. Five of my close friends and my favorite dog have died in the last two years.
