Laid off, what to do next? Advice please.
We’re in such a vicious business. You give your heart & soul to an agency, a client, a brand. Then the wind changes & you’re laid off, reassigned, chewed up, spit out, on to the next. I’m tired.
After getting laid off 2 weeks ago, I fired off about 20 resumes to different places. I have not received any feedback at all. Any ideas how to get past the computer and in front of someone?

Hey there! I’m looking into a move from academia to industry. Higher education is a hot mess and my job has no formal growth opportunities. I am not paid competitively for my role or location. Plus, we just got our first raise in 8 years! It was about 2%. I feel like my passion is no longer serving me and the future I want to pursue. Tips for making the switch? I just had my final interview for an IFS research position at PwC.
Amlaw 100- what’d your raise look like this year? I didn’t hit my hours, but was not far off, and got great performance reviews... then ended up with a 3% raise. Last year was a 7% raise
Partner in big 4, mid 40s. Doing okay but lack motivation as I don’t respect what we do or most of my clients. Team is decent and I feel responsible for them but not excited about consulting. Never been in the industry. Very tempted to do a start up. Have a few ideas. I would love some advice. Either how to suck it up and stay the course or being brave to try something new.

Return I’m working in is hedge fund, new client/1st year , in kind contributions, sec 1256 (which I’m not sure I’m totally understanding), organizational costs ect. Receive 40 correction points back.

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
Dark lip hair…any long term solutions? Tried laser but it did nothing (might have actually made it worse). Sick of bleaching or using depilatory creams. Open to any ideas!
Happy Holidays! Relax and enjoy the break because this year has been a crazy one for agency folks. Bless Fishbowl for the eye-opening salary posts. I owe this app my new job salary —was able to negotiate $25K+

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
